Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Mark Henry, has opined that in his opinion, The Hurt Business are a better version of the legendary Nation of Domination.
Since forming under the guidance of Montel Vontavious Porter in May 2020, the stable have run roughshod over Monday Night Raw and not satisfied with just singles gold in Bobby Lashley’s WWE United States Championship, the faction which began with just Lashley and MVP expanded to recruit Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin who dethroned The New Day for the Raw Tag Team Championships at WWE TLC 2020.
Their dominance and union, consisting of only African American talent, have drawn many similarities with the classic Nation of Domination bloc which was formed by Faarooq in 1996 and consisted of D Lo Brown, Kama Mustafa, Mark Henry and it’s most famous member, The Rock.
Now, ‘The World’s Strongest Man’ Mark Henry has sat down with WWE’s The Bump for Black History Month to discuss why, in his opinion, The Hurt Business are current better than the faction that inspired them:
“I think it was during that time that made that work. Right now, I think The Hurt Business is a better version. It’s not about black or white; it’s about green. It’s about prestige. It’s about honour.”
In recent months, The Hurt Business have gone to war with both Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of The New Day, as well as Jeff Hardy and Riddle in both doubles and singles action as the latter seeks to dethrone Bobby Lashley of the WWE United States Championship.
Mark Henry currently serves on the advisory board for a book named, ‘Black History 360’, which will be available in schools nationwide in 2021.
