The Hurt Business has truly proven to be one of the most dominant factions in WWE history, as Bobby Lashley, Cedric Alexander, Shelton Benjamin, and MVP have shown the world of professional wrestling that they mean business. The group started with Bobby Lashley and the rest joined later. MVP must be credited for the success of the faction, as all the members staggered up the main roster until they formed the group. Unfortunately, the group disbanded last week on Monday Night RAW when Bobby Lashley kicked out Alexander and Benjamin. Lashley’s angry management spiel was also leaked recently.
Bobby Lashley is set to defend his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 37 next week. As recent rumors suggest, Drew McIntyre could be defeating Bobby Lashley in the championship match and becoming the new WWE Champion. This would mark his third reign with the WWE Championship.
Sportskeeda.com He speculates that after this happens, Bobby Lashley could attack Hurt Business’ MVP leader and wipe out the faction for good, according to rumors. Either that or someone else could come and offer their services as a manager to help revive The Hurt Business with Lashley. Someone like Paul Heyman would certainly be a good fit, according to Sportskeeda. We will have to see what happens at WrestleMania 37.

Triple H leaks WWE firing after ‘burying’ a diva
Triple H has fired a WWE employee for sending a garbage bag to Mick James after his shot.
Triple H said: “Upon learning of the disrespectful treatment some of our recently released talents received on behalf of the company, we took immediate action. The person responsible for this inconsiderate action has been fired and is no longer with @WWE. “
Triple H praised Damian Priest on ESPN’s Cheap Heat podcast, “I looked at Damian Priest, I’ve seen him for years and I was like ‘man, this guy is, he’s talented. Everything I know and hear about him, he’s positive in all levels. Then he came to work with us, I remember, at a slightly older age, right, but I was like ‘Man, this kid can fix everything.’
But when I met him and started working with him, I thought, ‘Man, he’s like a sponge,’ no one just ever helped him get where he needed to be. Once the lightbulb started beeping for him, I thought, “This is a game changer for him.” He’s a little older, but he’s in good shape. He finally has the opportunity to put all those pieces together because he was not afraid of change or challenge. “
