He is the newest particular person to publicly voice his displeasure with the choice to interrupt up the group. As beforehand famous, Bobby Lashley and MVP spoke with Vince McMahon to attempt to get him to vary his thoughts.
Here is what Booker mentioned in regards to the break up of The Hurt Business: “I’m upset. I noticed The Hurt Business, not simply because the faction as a collective, however I noticed Cedric Alexander having the ability to do an entire lot extra being part of the group, being aligned. The man may be very, very proficient. Sometimes you gotta be capable to work out easy methods to get essentially the most out of somebody like a Cedric Alexander, a man who has all of the in-ring potential to exit and carry out at a really, very excessive degree, however could also be missing so far as his storytelling. He might do one thing on the market with this man and does the identical factor with that man.
You have to inform him, ‘Hey man, we have to pull it back here when we are working with this one.’ So, having a coach, like MVP in his head from a practical standpoint, was positively one thing good for Cedric Alexander. If Cedric couldn’t come again after a match and go to MVP and say, ‘Hey man, what do you think?”. I’m not speaking about some TV managerial experience. I’m speaking about real-time, real-life and say, ‘Go out and try it like this. Do this here and what not and I think it will look a lot better.’
Man, that’s someone that’s going to assist this child transfer up the ladder. He’s going to be higher after The Hurt Business is throughout with if we maintain them collectively for six months, eight months, a 12 months. Cedric’s going to be a significantly better expertise to your roster if one thing like that’s to go down. Now, somebody like Shelton Benjamin, OG, a man that’s positively an all-purpose, a man that may do absolutely anything you need him to do. ‘Ok, you need me to go out and really get over tonight? I can do that.’ There are so many various issues that Shelton is ideal for. Then, you might have Bobby, who’s the final word specimen, a man who positively has kicked it into one other gear. I at all times speak about gears and guys having the ability to have three, 4 gears. Bobby Lashley, over this final 12 months, has positively kicked it into one other gear. We are seeing a unique Bobby Lashley than we’ve seen in fairly a while. Even when he was in TNA, even when he was in WWE earlier than when he was with me, Bobby has positively discovered himself.”
