MVP was a guest on Say Less With Kaz and Lowkey where he talked about his return to WWE. Since MVP returned during this year’s Royal Rumble, he has been slowly but surely building up a stable of powerful, talented, but neglected wrestlers around him.

The Hurt Business, consisting of MVP, Bobby Lashley, and Shelton Benjamin is now a force to be reckoned with. MVP is the “self-declared” US Champion and Benjamin is the current 24/7 Champion, and the faction has been drawing comparisons to another group from the past, the Nation of Domination.

While MVP has not been shy about saying that he wants a stable of wrestlers to work with, including current Hurt Business opponents Cedric Alexander, Ricochet, and Apollo Crews, he is adamant that they are not another Nation of Domination.

“No, no, the short answer is no,” MVP told the hosts when they brought up the comparison.

“The Nation was done, it was awesome and the time it was done it was needed, you know. Stars were made,” he acknowledged.

According to MVP, his goal with the Hurt Business is to present himself, Benjamin, and Lashly as “strong, black, role models” but what they’re doing isn’t meant to be a statement about race.

Instead, MVP wants the Hurt Business to be seen as successful “businessmen.”

“I just like making money with my friends, you know what I’m saying?” he added.

MVP also told the hosts that he still wants to expand the roster of the Hurt Business and work with both Ricochet and Apollo Crews. MVP has been “after” Crews for months to let him coach or mentor him and he believes Ricochet could benefit from his advice as well.

“I used to tell him (Ricochet) ‘If you could talk like you wrestle, you’ll be a millionaire’,” said MVP.
