Montez Ford Defends WWE Tag Team Title Trade With The New Day

At the recent WWE Draft, Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits were drafted to SmackDown and SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day were drafted to Raw.

To make sure the brand and title color scheme matched, Street Profits and New Day simply executed a trade for the titles.

While maybe not the most enthralling way to crown new champions, Montez Ford believed it made sense. 

"People would say, 'Well you know, that doesn't make any sense and this and that and the third.' And I was like, 'Well, how do they think Ted DiBiase became the WWE Champion?' Like, Andre the Giant won and he surrendered the title. That's just as much as swap as it is our Tag Team Titles," Ford told Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda

New Day and Street Profits did clash at WWE Survivor Series in a Champions vs. Champions bout, with Street Profits picking up the victory. 

Ford said about the battle and rivalry, "It's one of those things where I look back on it, I'm just like, I still can't believe it actually happened. Especially with everything that's happening this year and like all the limitations and stuff that people not only have gone through and been through, but for us to still... it happened, you know, it happened."

Unfortunately for the Street Profits, their momentum didn't last long as they were defeated by Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler last Friday on SmackDown.
