Kenny King made a spectacular return to TNA this week, challenging director of wrestling operations MVP to a match on his first night back with the company.
King, 32, has won the TNA X Division title once in his career, and made a point of interrupting the first in a best of three series between Sanada and Tigre Uno, which will determine the next X Division Champion – claiming that he was the best wrestler in the division.
MVP – who has been eager to stress that every wrestler will have to earn their title opportunities, since taking over control of wrestling operations from Dixie Carter – was quick to take exception to King’s comments.
However, King – who was also part of the team that won the TNA World Cup of Wrestling, along with Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, James Storm and Mickie James – was determined to force the issue, having been denied his return match for two weeks in a row, due to the company’s busy schedule.
His arrogant outburst eventually led him to challenge MVP to an exhibition match, and after much goading, the match was agreed. The bout would be King’s first with TNA since September, when he was comfortably defeated by Austin Aries.
MVP edged the pair’s match, catching King in a submission hold before granting his opponent’s pleas for release. But the match grew steadily more aggressive as King failed to respect the exhibition nature of the match. The pair quickly began to brawl rather than wrestle, with punches thrown.
Officials eventually had to intervene and drag the pair apart, with King getting a parting shot as he was pulled away from the ring – the match officially ending in a no contest. MVP attempted to gain his revenge by attacking King backstage, before being talked down by the Wolves duo of Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards.
