MORE Hurt Business Return Teases On Last Night's WWE Raw

MVP and Bobby Lashley mending fences as part of new start for stable in 2023?

Bobby Lashley MVP

More clues were dropped on last night's Monday Night Raw that The Hurt Business will be reforming in the very near future.

MVP interrupted an interview with Bobby Lashley on the show and confirmed that he was responsible for Lashley getting reinstated on Monday Night Raw after his recent on-air firing. He then spoke about being better "all" together, that he got "Shelton and Cedric to realise the mistakes they made" and suggested that they put some "hurt" on The Bloodline.

The two bumped fists at the end of the conversation, and though Lashley rebuffed Porter's help this time, it seemed inevitable that the two would eventually come together again in the near future.


This more overt mention follows a tease on last weeks show where MVP was spotted in the background of another segment holding court with Benjamin, Alexander and Adam Pearce. The status of his relationship with Omos remains unknown, with the giant's own future currently also uncertain. He last appeared on television squashing Johnny Gargano on the November 21st edition of Raw, weeks after losing a big man battle with Braun Strowman at October's Crown Jewel. MVP turned on Lashley to side with Omos on the Raw after WrestleMania 38, but may look to bring both sides together as part of his old/new stable plans.
