WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley has named a surprising potential addition to the Hurt Business faction.
The group, made up of Lashley, MVP, and Raw Tag Team Champions Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin, has shown signs of dissension recently, but in fact, it could be growing in numbers soon rather than depleting.
Speaking with, ESPN’s Cheap Heat podcast, Lashley spoke about potential new additions to the group, and he actually named Mickie James as someone who would suit being added to the Hurt Business ranks.
“Well, first I’ll answer that [in] two parts. The first part is we don’t necessarily need anyone, because, I mean, we have everything that it takes to get everything that we want. However, I think there’s some people on the roster that have kind of the same mentality that we have, that older school mentality. There’s a lot of names that have been thrown out, male and female. I like them both.
“There’s a lot of names that have been thrown out. Mickie James came back with our era, so Mickie James has that old Hurt Business style from before. You have Naomi, she has that whoop a girl up attitude also, and there’s a lot of people on the guys side, there’s a lot of guys out there that kind of have that thought. We always hear people come to us and say, ‘Hey man, I wanna be a part of The Hurt Business.’ Whether they’re joking around or not, I think they’re really serious.”
The Hurt Business has been successful since its creation, but a lot of fans have said they’d like to see a female addition.
Bobby Lashley seems to still be embroiled in a program with Riddle on Raw after their most recent US Title match ended inconclusively.
