Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali were once considered the heart and soul of WWE 205 Live and now, they are on opposite ends of a faction war between The Hurt Business and RETRIBUTION. Speaking with TVInsider, Cedric Alexander spoke about the growth of The Hurt Business and why he is so happy for his rival in RETRIBUTION.

“It’s like being in a group with my best friends. You would look at it as I’m the newest guy and not having as lengthy a relationship like the three of them have. But I’ve known Shelton for about 10 years since I started wrestling. I’ve known Bobby for about three or four. I’ve known MVP the same amount of time. They’ve given me advice on the side, so I’ve had these interactions before. When the group fully formed, it felt natural to me,” said Alexander. “When we first started, people might say, ‘Oh, this is another Nation of Domination.’ I feel like the group is a positive spin on strong, Black men. At the same time, we don’t want to spread the idea that race is the driving force. It just so happens we are four strong, Black men who believe in themselves. That’s a great thing to have on TV right now, especially when racial injustice is still prevalent and things are looked at so negatively. When you have four men with a positive goal in mind to succeed and be the best they can be, why not go for it?”

Regarding Ali, Cedric said, “I’m more than happy for him. With our history back on 205 Live and the brotherhood and how we grew. I’m excited just to be back in the ring with him. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to ever since we had that match at WrestleMania all those years ago. I’m really excited for people to see what he can really do. He has always been great on the mic and great on 205 Live when people may have not been watching as much. You see on SmackDown what he did on that platform and getting the spotlight he deserved. Now that he has a bigger platform leading one of the biggest factions on Raw, I’m ready for us to tear it up like we did back then. We have a bigger stage to show the world we’re not just one-trick ponies. We can tell stories. We can be compelling. We can have matches that draw people in and take it into this company for another 10, 15 years.”
