Back on the September 7 episode of Monday Night Raw, Cedric Alexander turned on his friends Ricochet and Apollo Crews and joined The Hurt Business. The former Cruiserweight Champion has seemingly picked up a new lease of life with MVP's faction as he has since defeated his former allies and even main evented Raw on September 21 in a six-man tag team match against RETRIBUTION.
While WWE had been teasing Alexander would be joining The Hurt Business over the past couple of months, Cedric revealed during a recent interview with Alex McCarthy at talkSPORT that he found out he would be defecting to the group only hours before his heel turn.
Queen City's Favourite Son said: "Honestly, I never officially knew until the night it happened. It was always the case of 'it would be cool if' and it would be nice if this happened and I'd heard maybe it would be Ricochet or Apollo – we just never knew.
"There was never a set plan until it was like 'hey, you! You're in the Hurt Business now.' Okay, sweet [laughs]. Let's do it. I'll take that."
