Montez Ford teases heel turn for the Street Profits by saying there is room for a “demeanor change”

In recent weeks, there has been speculation about The Street Profits possibly turning heel. During an interview with Adam Silverstein for the Getting Over podcast, Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins teased the idea of a character change for the team…

Ford: “I feel there is huge room for more of a demeanor change. The change that happened towards us, the feeling is real. Last year at SummerSlam was pretty much our last official time on the big stage to go for the tag team championships, and we didn’t succeed. That loss stung, still to this day. It’s been almost a year. The more you get these opportunities and the more time you don’t succeed, the more natural feeling of being upset and frustrated, which leads to a possible character change. Whatever you’re possibly doing, is not working. If the revolving situation keeps happening, the change must happen.”

Dawkins: “Those losses play a lot in my head, a bunch. It’s getting frustrating a little bit because you keep getting so close to something and it keeps slipping away. It’s right there at your fingertips and every time you try to do it the right way, it’s not gone your way. I’m sick and tired of waiting and going through all these hoops to get to where the goal is of being the champions. We’re going to start running through mugs in a minute.”

Ford: “You look at guys like Roman (Reigns) and (Austin) Theory, they aren’t doing it the right way, but they’ve been successful for a very long time. In the back of your mind, you go, ‘should I do the way that they’re doing or should I keep the righteousness and the ability and everything that has gotten us this far.’ You reach a plateau of doing what you’re doing for a long time and things don’t happen, so maybe a change has to happen. Eventually, frustrations do rise and change must happen.” (quotes courtesy of Jeremy Lambert)
