WWE’s Missed Opportunity: The Hurt Business Reunion That Never Happened

One big thing: WWE had plans to reunite The Hurt Business last year, but ultimately scrapped the idea.

• Shelton Benjamin revealed in a recent interview with Metro that there were concrete plans for The Hurt Business to make a comeback.

• The reunion was set to happen in 2022, but dates kept changing until the idea was eventually abandoned.

• Benjamin described the cancellation as “a kick in the balls,” highlighting the disappointment felt by the group’s members.

Why it matters

The Hurt Business, comprising Bobby Lashley, MVP, Cedric Alexander, and Shelton Benjamin, was a fan-favorite faction that significantly boosted each member’s career. Their premature disbandment in 2021 left many fans and even Roman Reigns feeling it was too soon.

By the numbers

• The Hurt Business was active from 2020 to 2021.
• During their run, the group held multiple championships, including the WWE Championship and Raw Tag Team Championships.

What they’re saying

Benjamin on The Hurt Business’ potential:

“I felt like there was so much more for every individual in that to really elevate themselves within the company. And I think the fact that there was no Hurt Business versus Bloodline war is one of the biggest mishaps in pro wrestling.”

The big picture

The revelation of abandoned reunion plans adds to the ongoing discussion about WWE’s creative decisions. It raises questions about missed opportunities and the potential impact The Hurt Business could have had on current storylines.

What’s next

With MVP recently claiming that Triple H refused to bring back The Hurt Business, it seems unlikely that fans will see a reunion anytime soon. The focus now shifts to how WWE will utilize these talented individuals in their solo careers.
