The Hurt Business in WWE RAW
MVP has been vocal about wanting to lead his own stable. Over the last few months, we saw him trying to convince several WWE Superstars to join him and Bobby Lashley.
MVP's impact on Bobby Lashley was evident as he pushed the latter into the title picture -- something that Lashley has deserved for a long time. His match against Drew McIntyre further proved why he should be involved in championship matches more often.
The newest addition to MVP's stable is Shelton Benjamin who made his alliance clear on tonight's episode of RAW. During a backstage segment, MVP and Lashley approached R-Truth and tried to intimidate him.
They also had a referee which hinted at the fact they might be going after the 24/7 Championship. Suddenly it was Shelton Benjamin who attacked R-Truth and following the pinfall; he walked out as the 100th 24/7 Champion.
Now that MVP finally ahs a new member in his stable, it will be interesting to see how WWE will go ahead with the booking of this group.
