WWE: The Potential of the "Ballin" Superstar

Like the photo? 'Cause I do. This article is all about the potential that MVP has, yet has not used.

MVP joined the company about two years ago and promptly began a feud with Chris Beniot. This led up to WrestleMania XXIII, his first 'Mania appearance, in which he took it to Benoit and almost came out the victor.

It was then people started to be impressed by MVP; before that, he seemed just a jobber.

He later defeated Beniot in a best-two-out-of-three falls match to win his first U.S. title. He had a long reign, as his belt was not lost for a year (to Matt Hardy).

MVP went on to become part of the Ric Flair retirement angle and also had a short feud with Rey Mysterio, which he ended up winning.

He was in the 2008 Elimination Chamber, in which he once again looked like a jobber, and also participated in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match later that year.

Now, MVP has been drafted to RAW. But he won't stop there; he is the highest-paid athlete in Smackdown history, you know.

Still, I thought MVP would be a World Champion by now; instead, he just lost to Dolph Ziggler.

This is a man who needds and deserves a push as much as anyone on RAW, though I doubt he will get it. RAW is packed with star power, so MVP may get lost in the shuffle.

He will most likely not get a World Title run before WrestleMania XXVI, but I believe that he could still be a big player in that event. He will for sure have a feud with Kennedy soon, but hopefully he fueds with a main eventer after that.

I could see him and HBK getting into something.

MVP has the look, charisma, and mic skills of a superstar. To boot, he has excellent in-ring ability, though he needs to work on his move set and get a new finisher here pretty soon (the Overdrive isn't doing it for me).

What do you think of MVP?
