Former RAW Tag Team Champions Splits Up On Last Night's RAW

RAW last night saw Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander take on Lucha House Party's Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik in a Tag Team Match, but came out of the match with a loss. The match saw Metalik secure the pinfall victory on Shelton Benjamin after walking the top rope and hitting his flying elbow drop. After the match, Cedric Alexander grabbed the microphone and addressed Benjamin.

We first saw Alexander yell at Benjamin and tell him to look at how they have gone from being part of The Hurt Business to this. Cedric Alexander then insisted it was Shelton Benjamin who was kicked from The Hurt Business, not both of them, because Benjamin was the weakest link. Cedric then went on about how Benjamin has received numerous chances in WWE and that he doesn’t have long in his career. Cedric then said that he is still in his prime and he refuses to give any more time to Benjamin. Cedric then said just like Benjamin, this tag team is done. Cedric Alexander then dropped the microphone and made his way up the ramp as fans booed, and Benjamin watched from ringside.

Later on RAW, Benjamin spoke with Kayla Braxton backstage and talked about surviving in the wrestling business for so long because he can take the hits, and seeing so many wrestlers like Alexander come & go. Benjamin then said that the only reason Cedric Alexander was part of The Hurt Business was due to him seeing potential in Cedric, not MVP or WWE Champion Bobby Lashley. Benjamin then said that Cedric can do whatever he wants on his own, but he will respect Benjamin. Shelton Benjamin then said that he let Cedric say what he wanted on RAW, but if Cedric isn’t careful, then he will be another young star fizzling out while Benjamin continues to survive.

Cedric and Shelton were put in a tag team in August 2020, and eventually won the RAW Tag Team Titles, holding them for 85 days. They were officially kicked out from The Hurt Business back in late March. There's no word yet on what WWE has planned for Benjamin and Alexander after their split, but updates will be provided once it has been made available.
