The injury bug has plagued the wrestling landscape throughout 2022. AEW talents like Adam Cole and Hangman Page remain on the shelf with concussions, while former WWE champions like Big E and Randy Orton have been out of action for months with potentially career-threatening injuries. Another former defending champion at Montez Ford has been out since September after hurting his calf. The injury came at an inconvenient time for the high-flying half of the Street Profits, as Ford was in the spotlight in singles. Monday Night Raw.
That said, it may only be a matter of days before Ford steps back between the ropes. Speaking The Today ShowFord revealed that he is completely healthy.
“[I’m] 100 percent now,” Ford said. “Should be back pretty soon.”
As mentioned, before his injury, Ford flirted with one-on-one matchups, taking on Seth Rollins in a critically acclaimed Raw about last August. Even with a singles career on the horizon, Ford stressed that his immediate priorities are within the tag division.
“Just pick my spots and make sure when I arrive the mission is still close, and that’s with my right hand, 100,000, Angelo Dawkins,” Ford continued. “That’s winning the Undisputed Tag Team Championships.”
The Street Profits challenged the undisputed WWE Tag Team champions The Usos twice over the summer, both on WWE money in the bank and WWE SummerSlam. These failed opportunities have led to speculation that the duo could go their separate ways, which Ford has dismissed.
“To be honest, first time I heard about it [the splitting rumors] was an interview,” Ford said.” I’m like, damn! We both just stay focused on the task at hand. We no longer have the RAW Tag Team Championship, which we never lost. We are trying to regain the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. I don’t think we’re really worried about splitting because we’ve already had a lot of things on our plate.”
Even if it breaks up one day, Dawkins has stressed that they will both support each other.
“We’re brothers. We’ve been brothers since NXT, so it means a lot,” Dawkins said. “Also following what The New Day did, they’re still together and had their singles runs, but they supported each other no matter what.”
