Bobby Lashley has thrown some names into the mix as potential recruits for The Hurt Business after the group split on Monday Night Raw.
Former Raw Tag Team Champions Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander found themselves on the outs with MVP and Lashley. This led to a match on Raw where WWE Champion Lashley defeated Benjamin in short order.
Later in the night SmackDown star King Corbin surprised everyone when he attacked Drew McIntyre at Lashley’s behest. The two men have since alluded to their former alliance with McIntyre on Raw in 2019.
Speaking on The Battleground Podcast, the All Mighty had some names in mind to join his group:
“There’s a lot of people I look at and say, ‘hmmm, there’s a possibility.’ If I start throwing names out and speculation would go. [Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott] been looking rough lately. He has that rough style. We were trying to pull Apollo [Crews] over, but he found his niche on SmackDown, which I love.”
“There are a few women we would love to be able to talk to if that were the case. I can’t really say any names. Naomi looks prime and ready to beat some people up. Can’t speculate and throw stuff out because I don’t know where we’re going, it’s only fantasy booking. I don’t know where Lio [Rush] is at. I like Lio and always loved Lio. Bring him back.”
Lio Rush acted as Lashley’s manager for a spell in 2019. During that time Bobby Lashley held the Intercontinental Championship twice.
