Bobby Lashley Will “Make Sure” The Hurt Business Reunite

Bobby Lashley The Hurt Business

After falling just short of establishing himself as main event star upon initially returning to WWE in 2018, Bobby Lashley’s fortunes changed in June 2020.

With the end of his poorly received on-screen relationship with Lana – CJ Perry – Lashley joined forces with MVP, before the pair eventually recruited Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. Over the following months Lashley became WWE Champion and Alexander & Benjamin won the Raw Tag Team Titles.

However, come April 2021 the group was falling apart with Alexander and Benjamin kicked to the curb.

Bobby Lashley Vows To Bring Back The Hurt Business

Speaking to Radio Rahim ahead of his clash with Brock Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel, Lashley reflected on the success of the group and promised to bring back the faction before all is said and done.

“The Hurt Business was something that everybody loved and everybody will still love. Never say never. Not even never say never, I will make sure that somehow, some way, we get back together because it seems like right now, everybody is getting back into some sort of group in the WWE. There are so many different factions coming together.

The most important faction and one of the biggest factions for the last few years, the one that took us through the pandemic was the Hurt Business. During the pandemic, everyone else was staying at home, so many people staying at home, didn’t want to go to work, so many people who took a back-step. The Hurt Business stepped up. We were every part of the show for a long time. That should get a rebirth,”

At WWE Crown Jewel Bobby Lashley was defeated by Brock Lesnar, despite holding The Beast in the Hurt Lock. While trapped in the hold, Lesnar fell backwards onto Lashley, earning the pin in the process.
