MVP Credits Paul Heyman With Hurt Business Opportunity In WWE

"He saw Bobby’s vision and he put us together and gave us an opportunity."

MVP has credited Paul Heyman for allowing him and Bobby Lashley to give their partnership an opportunity on WWE Raw last year.

The origins of the Hurt Business were sowed last May as Lashley and MVP began to work together, with the duo eventually recruiting Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander to their group as 2020 progressed. 

With Benjamin and Alexander as WWE Raw Tag Team Champions, Lashley won the WWE Championship last week, cementing The Hurt Business' position at the top of the WWE card. 

MVP is delighted with the success The Hurt Business have enjoyed in less than a year together and believes former Raw executive producer Heyman deserves credit for listening to Lashley's pitch to work with MVP.

Speaking to the Denver Post, MVP said: "Fortunately Paul Heyman, who was in charge at the time creatively, he saw Bobby’s vision and he put us together and gave us an opportunity.

"We’re not at the upper echelon; we just broke through the proverbial glass ceiling. Now we’re moving into that upper stratosphere, but I think that judging what I see back on social media and people that I meet out and about … I believe The Hurt Business could be huge in the (wrestling) business. We’ve only been together a year, so we’ve only scratched the surface."
