Veteran professional wrestler and prominent member of the Hurt Business, MVP, recently sat down with Inside The Ropes to discuss the formation and evolution of the victorious wrestling faction. The Hurt Business, which initially featured MVP Cedric Alexander, Shelton Benjamin, and two-time WWE Champion Bobby Lashley, has become a dominant force within the wrestling world.
During the insightful interview, MVP opened up about selecting members for the group and revealed that both Apollo Crews and Ricochet were considered for inclusion. Ultimately, however, the decision was made to pass on these two talented individuals, as they were already receiving significant screen time as singles competitors.
MVP on Choosing Cedric Over Ricochet
MVP explained, "At that point, we felt that Apollo (Crews) was being established on his own, and we came down to Ricochet and Cedric (Alexander for a spot in The Hurt Business). We felt that Ricochet stood a better chance of being successful on his own, whereas Cedric would do better from his association with us, and so far, I was pretty accurate in that assessment." This decision proved wise, as Cedric Alexander flourished within the Hurt Business, capturing multiple championships alongside his teammates.
The group's impressive synergy and combined experience allowed them to quickly ascend the ranks and cement their legacy as a formidable faction in the wrestling world. MVP's choice to bring Cedric Alexander into the fold also showcased the veteran's keen eye for talent and ability to recognize the potential in younger performers.
Alexander, who was initially overshadowed by other high-flying stars like Ricochet, has since developed into a well-rounded and captivating performer under the guidance of MVP and his fellow Hurt Business members. As the Hurt Business continues to thrive, its success story serves as a reminder of the importance of teamwork and mentorship in professional wrestling.
The group's unique blend of experience, raw talent, and ambition has propelled them to new heights and established them as a force to be reckoned with in the industry. It remains to be seen what the future holds for the Hurt Business.
Still, with MVP at the helm and a strong foundation of talent and camaraderie, fans can undoubtedly expect more incredible moments and accomplishments from this dominant faction.
