The Hurt Business IMPLODES On WWE Raw

Bobby Lashley and MVP call time on The Hurt Business during a fiery Raw split.

Cedric Alexander Shelton Benjamin The Hurt Business Split

WWE just split up another faction on Raw.

The Hurt Business followed Retribution's lead several weeks ago by imploding on last night's episode of Raw. Bobby Lashley told Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander that they were out because he couldn't rely on them anymore, then the WWE Champion brawled with his now-former associates.

It looks like Lashley and MVP will remain a package, but Cedric and Shelty B won't be wearing those snappy suits much longer.


Later, Bobby beat Benjamin with his Hurt Lock (full nelson). He's scheduled to repeat the trick against Alexander on next week's show too - that, for the record, will be Raw's go-home episode before WrestleMania 37 the following weekend.

Both Benjamin and Alexander are also banned from ringside for Lashley's WWE Title defence against Drew McIntyre during 'Mania's night one. It must be said that WWE's timing is curious here; one would think that they'd stack the odds against babyface McIntyre pre-WrestleMania. Instead, they've cleared his path towards the champ.


It's also a shame that The Hurt Business gimmick has ended. The group had become a regular highlight on Raw over the past year or so.
