MVP's injury shuffles main event for TNA Slammiversary
TNA announced today that MVP will be unable to challenge for Eric Young's TNA World title at the Slammiversary PPV on Sunday. Instead, it will be a three-way dance in the main event, with the participants to be determined earlier on the PPV.
"My knee injury is legit. I'm very disappointed by the timing of this injury and the unfortunate repercussions that accompany it," wrote MVP on his Twitter feed, @The305MVP.
On its ImpactWrestling.com website, TNA explained what will happen in the main event:

We can now report that the winners of each of those bouts will then be added to Sunday’s Main Event against TNA World Champion Eric Young – creating a Three Way Steel Cage Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Title."
