According PWInsider, WWE had plans to split Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins, The Street Profits, in the 2021 WWE Draft.

The Street Profits would have been reportedly split to have singles runs, with Ford heading to Monday Night Raw and Angelo Dawkins on SmackDown. Montez Ford would have joined his real-life partner, Bianca Belair, on the red brand.

PWInsider confirmed that as the week progressed leading up to the WWE Draft, the idea was ultimately shelved with the Ford and Dawkins drafted to Raw as a tag team.

Instead, WWE opted for the idea to split MACE and T-Bar, with T-Bar on Raw and MACE heading to the blue brand, SmackDown.

Montez Ford has been impressive in recent singles action. He recently held his own against Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, in the main event of SmackDown on September 24 whilst Dawkins was absent.

Were the WWE too early in considering to split The Street Profits?

There’s no doubt that Montez Ford could hold his own as a singles competitor. We haven’t really seen much of Angelo Dawkins in a singles match scenario to be able to make such a judgement on him yet. The tag team are ever popular with the WWE Universe and have been together since their days in NXT. There’s still plenty left in the tank for the team, who could dominate the Raw tag team division and create a legacy of their own, similar to that of The New Day and The Uso’s in recent memory.

There will be a moment when it will be time for Ford and Dawkins to split, but now doesn’t seem like the right time. A fresh start on Monday Night Raw will do them good, and will likely see more television time with Raw being three-hours every week. As for right now, we still want the smoke!
