In Ring Segmet: Dixie Carter and MVP Summit

Dixie Carter and MVP come to the ring for their ‘summit’. Dixie puts Magnus over as being a champion with dignity, and says they should stick together. Dixie talks about what a great job she’s done so far and wants to talk about new ideas, but MVP stops her and says she has some ideas of his own. MVP says he’s discovered they only agree to disagree, and her mismanagement has nearly crippled this company by making it an uneven playing field. He says he won’t stand idly and her reign of terror is over, so he will take any action to show her that the party is over.

JPOV: Lackluster show in my opinion. Too much Dixie Carter on the screen and too many in ring promos tonight. I enjoy the Monster Ball Match with Eric Young and Abyss. This MVP investor is not going to work in my opinion. There so much potential with this company with the roster they have. The focus is on WWE mid carders that got fired and if they expect that they are going to bring in revenue, its not going to happen.
