This week's Monday Night Raw opened with one of WWE's most popular factions, The Hurt Business, seemingly dissolve. After failing to take out Drew McIntyre before WrestleMania, Bobby Lashley and MVP kicked Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander out of the group, prompting a brawl between the four and an eventual match between Lashley and Benjamin where the current WWE Champion won.
On top of that, Lashley recruited King Corbin over from SmackDown to help attack McIntyre in the closing moments of the show. Neither booking decision was well-received by fans (Batista even called WWE out on it), but MVP popped up on Twitter on Wednesday to clarify a few things.
For one, Corbin has not and will not join the faction. And two, the faction isn't as dead as originally believed.

To be clear, Bobby Lashley and MVP are The Hurt Business.
We are always looking for talented applicants.
Have the day you deserve.— MVP (@The305MVP) March 31, 2021
