The Street Profits were in action this past Monday Night on Raw when they teamed with The Viking Raiders against Akira Tozawa’s new Ninja team. On their way to the ring, Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins decided to recreate their usual entrance to the ring but had to go behind the barriers to do so.
Ford and Dawkins were seen hi-fiving fans on their way to the ring, just hours before a positive COVID-19 case was confirmed at WWE’s Performance Center and the company was forced to postpone tapings.
WWE released a statement confirming that they were keeping the audience and their superstars apart, but The Street Profits proved that this wasn’t the case during their entrance.
Later in the night, Dominick Mysterio also escaped from Seth Rollins into the crowd, but this was reportedly planned.
Tom Colohue of Sportskeeda, confirmed that Ford and Dawkins were taking a risk by heading into the audience on Raw, on the most recent episode of Dropkick DiSKussions.
“The backstage areas were upset with the Street Profits that they went out and joined the crowd. The plan was not to go out, They were giving high fives to everyone, and they have obviously taken a risk with that. Dominik’s run through the crowd, that was planned, and he was definitely breaking social distancing with how close he was to some of these people later on. So there was something planned, and there was something not planned.”
Ford and Dawkins are currently the Raw Tag Team Champions and were set to defend the titles against The Viking Raiders on Raw but this obviously didn’t happen.
Viking Raiders and The Street Profits have seemingly joined forces in recent weeks, but given this recent breach of the rules, could the Street Profits be set to drop their titles because of their unscripted moment?
