Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has come out in defence of The Hurt Business, stating that he’s very proud of all the members of WWE’s most prominent faction.
Since the group’s inception, The Hurt Business have been the dominant force on Monday Night Raw not only adding members in the form of Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin, but also championships with the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships, WWE United States Championship and most recently the WWE Championship.
The group have recently been compared to Johnson’s Nation of Domination by former N.O.D member Mark Henry and now the Hollywood mega-star has stood up in support of the group following a minor Twitter spat surrounding a mural of predominantly African American WWE Champions.
The picture in question depicted a young child looking up at a collage of The Rock, Kofi Kingston and Bobby Lashley all holding the coveted WWE Championship which read, ‘It’s possible.’
However, when a fan commented that not everything has to be about race Hurt Business leader MVP defended the picture stating that it means something when heroes look like you. The series of tweets was then seen by The Rock who affirmed the sentiment of Montel Vontavious Porter.
“Well said, brother. You guys are doing GREAT. Very happy for all of you. Very proud, too. Representing.”

While Porter responded to The Rock with a fist emoji, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley had his own humbling response to ‘The Great One’ which credited Johnson for paving the way for men like him:
“You and so many others paved the way for us to do what we do. Without The Great One, there might not be an All Mighty.”

Bobby Lashley defeated The Miz to capture the WWE Championship on the March 1 edition on Monday Night Raw after fulfilling his role in the pair’s deal which saw ‘The All Mighty’ attack Drew McIntyre allowing Miz to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase at Elimination Chamber.
