Rumored name for Bobby Lashley’s faction with The Street Profits on WWE Smackdown

As seen during the January 5th 2024 edition of WWE Smackdown, the Authors of Pain and Paul Ellering officially returned to WWE and formed a new faction with Karrion Kross and Scarlett. The new faction attacked Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits.

Lashley and the Profits, who were booked as heels in recent months, have seemingly reverted back to babyface characters for the feud against Kross’ faction. Twitter account @WrestleVotes noted the following regarding Lashley’s group…

“There were plans in place to name the Bobby Lashley / Street Profits faction on last weeks SmackDown, which got axed at the last second for unknown reasons. I’m told those plans are still tentative as the direction of the trio could be shifting. The planned name for the group is ‘The Pride.'”
