Bobby Lashley on The Hurt Business – “We’re Different From This Generation”

Last updated

WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley recently spoke to the Cheap Heat podcast w/Peter Rosenburg. The (former?) MMA fighter discussed a number of topics during the show, including his faction, The Hurt Business.

One of the topics also discussed was The Undertaker’s recent comments on the Joe Rogan podcast. ’˜Taker stated that ‘it’s tough right now for me [to enjoy WWE], because the product has changed so much. It’s kinda soft.’

“Yeah, I don’t wanna say I agree with him completely, actually I can because it’s Taker. I can say I agree with him” Bobby Lashley began on the podcast. “So I agree with him. You know what? That’s what The Hurt Business is about. I mean that’s why we came about because we were like, ’˜What are we?’ And I was like, ’˜we’re different from this generation.’”

Bobby Lashley on ‘This Generation’

“Our generation came up when I was in OVW, about to go up on the road. Everybody was warning us” Lashley continued. “They were like, ’˜man, you know JBL, you got Chris Benoit, you have Bob Holly, you have Undertaker, you have Booker T.’ All these guys? Not one of these guys are punks. Fit Finlay, [William] Regal? Not one of these guys have an ounce of punk in them. So, we were all like ‘that’s our generation.'”

“So coming in now, we were like, ’˜we can’t do this generation” Lashley stated. “We can’t do what this generation is doing and we don’t wanna do what this generation is doing. We need to put our style on this generation’ and our style is bring ’˜em in the ring and beat ’˜em up, and if they can’t make it, they can’t make it, because we gotta protect this business.”

Bobby Lashley then finished by saying that he feels he needs to stop talents from ‘bitching’ in the locker room. “Before when I was coming up, all the guys used to say they were beating up the guys coming up because they said they had to protect the business. They had to make sure these guys had the heart to it, we [don’t] want guys in the locker room crying. We don’t want guys that are always bitching and bellyaching and everything like that. We beat ’˜em up and we kick ’˜em out, and some of the guys when we do that in the ring, you can do your little flippies and jumpies and all that stuff. I’m just gonna grab you, throw you down and beat you up.”
