Cedric Alexander describes the dynamic between the members of The Hurt Business.
The Hurt Business, comprising of MVP, Bobby Lashley, Shelton Benjamin and Alexander, has been a focal point of Raw for months with Lashley standing as the United States Champion. Alexander recently joined the group, but in an interview with TV Insider, he said the idea of him being a part of the stable had been around for a while.
"This is something that had been discussed in multiple variations for a while. I remember mentioning it to Bobby close to a year ago. It was an off-handed conversation. I remember talking before me and Ricochet was even involved against them. We thought it would be really awesome. It has been in the works for some time, but it wasn’t how we expected it to go," Alexander said.
Alexander is the most recent addition to the stable, but when talking about the relationship he's had with everyone else, he says it's like being in a group comprised of best friends. Alexander thought it was a natural fit for him to join the group.
"It’s like being in a group with my best friends. You would look at it as I’m the newest guy and not having as lengthy a relationship like the three of them have. But I’ve known Shelton for about 10 years since I started wrestling. I’ve known Bobby for about three or four. I’ve known MVP the same amount of time. They’ve given me advice on the side, so I’ve had these interactions before. When the group fully formed, it felt natural to me," Alexander said.
Alexander and Benjamin have been campagining for a shot at the Raw Tag Team titles and picked up a victory over current champions The New Day this week on Raw. You can read the full interview at this link.
