The Hurt Business was a faction which consisted of MVP, Bobby Lashley, Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander, there were also rumours that few other superstars wanted to join the The Hurt Business. The faction was started in 2020 during the Thunderdome era and was disbanded in 2022.
MVP recently was interviewed by WrestleZone,. where he talked about The Hurt Business, he also feels The Hurt Business is the highlight of his career.
“The Hurt Business obviously is very, very special because Shelton Benjamin is a true friend of mine. We’ve been friends. We live less than five minutes from each other. Bobby Lashley is the same. The three of us have been friends across different companies, across different countries for well over a decade. So, our relationship is organic. Cedric Alexander had a relationship with Shelton from their time in Ring of Honor together. So, when Shelton said, ‘I vouch for this guy,’ that’s all I needed to hear. Then Cedric and I developed a wonderful relationship.
“The organic nature of The Hurt Business, the real friendship and all of us being able to come together and achieve championships. Bobby being the WWE champion, Shelton and Cedric being the tag champions and me kind of being the coach, bringing that all together. It’s one of the highlights of my career for certain.”
