Now that MVP has been released, everyone is wondering what he's going to do next.
Whenever a wrestler receives his release, WWE makes sure that he cannot immediately jump to TNA. You can thank Lex Luger and Jeff Jarrett for that rule being in existence. MVP will not be eligible to sign with TNA for at least 90 days.
A lot of money can be made in three months. While some wrestlers do take the time to relax, most capitalize on their name value by working independent wrestling shows and overseas shows. Through his official Twitter account, MVP has stated a desire to work internationally.
A good place for MVP would be Puerto Rico.
First of all, the door should be open for the Florida native. MVP and Carlito developed a bond when the two of them worked together in WWE. Since they're both disgruntled with WWE, they should have plenty to talk about. Carlito's father happens to own the WWC (World Wrestling Council), the biggest wrestling promotion down in Puerto Rico.
With all of the former WWE stars just floating around right now, WWC could stand to make a significant amount of money. By booking these big name guys, they could have pretty stacked cards. I'm not sure if they can afford everyone at once, but they can mix and match them throughout the next few months and draw well.
Imagine being able to book a main event match featuring two former WWE tag champions: MVP and Matt Hardy against Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin. Imagine doing a five way clash featuring those four guys and Carlito. Imagine revisiting the classic feud between MVP and Hardy.
Lots of options for WWC and MVP.
