We told you earlier this week that Batista joined those who questioned WWE’s decision to split up the Hurt Business. It happened this past Monday night on Raw when Bobby Lashley made it clear that he didn’t think Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin were getting the job done. Thus, he kicked them out of the group and a brawl broke out.
It should be noted that MVP has claimed that he and Lashley are still the Hurt Business.
Fightful Select reports members of the group join those who were shocked or unhappy about the split. Per the report, Vince McMahon made the decision himself to split up the group. This decision was “much to the chagrin of those in the group.”
It was added that McMahon “was set in his choice to fracture the group, even after MVP and Bobby Lashley were vocal about not being in support of the move.” They had a meeting with the WWE Chairman and CEO about the idea, but “the latter dug his heels in even more.”
Finally, it was said the decision, and McMahon’s insistence to continue down that road was a blow to morale.
Lashley will defend the WWE Title against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 37 – Night 1 next Saturday.
