The Hurt Business made a lot of strides during their run in the company and elevated Bobby Lashley, MVP, Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. However, as is the case for many factions in WWE, the faction broke up last year on Monday Night RAW.
Even Roman Reigns felt that the faction was broken up too early. They eventually came back together last year for a brief period of time before separating once again.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio before WWE Raw, Bobby Lashley was asked about being positioned as one of the top acts on Raw. Lashley then stated that he wants to bring back The Hurt Business at some point.
“There are a lot of people in that position. I love our roster right now. That’s what made me excited about winning the United States Title. I had Ali, he’s a guy who has been overlooked a little bit, but he is phenomenal. Great wrestler, great mind in the business and he’s hungry. Every day when I come in, he has different ideas, ‘I want to do this, I want to do this.’
You have him, Riddle, he’s on fire right now. Seth Rollins, he’s Seth Freakin’ Rollins, he’s great across the board. Some of my closest friends, even favorites, the Hurt Business. MVP is there with Omos. Shelton Benjamin is still doing his stuff. Cedric is there. I’d like to bring that group back together at some point in time. There are so many highly talented people on there. Chad Gable, Otis. I dont’ want to leave out any names. Edge, Rey Mysterio, his son [Dominik Mysterio]. We’re all the faces…I’m one of the prominent figures because I’m the champion, but there are so many people you could say are the face of Raw, it depends on how you’re looking at it.”
We will have to wait and see whether The Hurt Business will ever make their return to WWE television. Fans would certainly love to see them back together as well.
