Notes on Bobby Lashley, Mance Warner, and the return of XPW

Nov 13, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

Bobby Lashley talks about the reunion of the Hurt Business via

“We just need to have a little group discussion. Before, when the group first formed, We went and had meals and drinks after every show at a local bar. Strategizing over chicken wings and a beer. To me, that was some of the best times of my career. Because these guys are actually my friends. I like these guys, I want to be around these guys, I talk to these guys. I want us to be successful and together. The crowd felt it, knew it was real and really behind it. Have you got a brother or sister? A lot of the time when you have brothers, you have fights and you’re so mad, but the next thing you know, you’re back hanging and playing. Nobody asks ‘How did you guys get back together!’ It’s just like that. I have friends that I consider my brothers. The Boogeyman is one of those – really hope he comes back sometime. He and I will fight like ‘man, I don’t want to talk to you!’ we go off in a rage. Next day it’s like ‘hey man, you ready to go work out? Yeah, f–k you too’ then we go work out! So it’s kind of the same thing; brothers have little arguments and that, but we get back together.”


A GoFundMe for Mance Warner’s medical expenses has been set up following surgery on his ankle, tibia and fibia.
