Published 10/21/2021, 7:45 AM EDT


There’s an unsaid rule in the pro-wrestling business that the main eventers (established superstars) in the business “protect” the younger wrestlers and make sure that they go a long way. Just like what The Undertaker did for the young Jeff Hardy in a ladder match on WWE Raw back in the early 2000s. Similarly, this is what Roman Reigns did for the young Montez Ford.

It is being reported now that Vince McMahon and the rest of the WWE creative team wanted to give one-half of the Raw tag team champions, Montez Ford, a chance to shine.

As Ford has recently impressed a good deal of backstage personnel and after his smooth performance against the ‘Tribal Chief’, Vince McMahon might want to push him to the moon.

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon trusts the young superstar

According to GiveMeSport, Montez Ford was booked to see if he could withstand the pressure of performing on the ‘A’ show like SmackDown and against the company’s champion.

To everyone’s surprise, the young tag team champion put in a stellar performance against Roman Reigns and made the WWE Universe believe he has much more to offer.

What’s more commendable is that Ford covered a clear botch. He wanted to deliver a double axe handle move to Reigns. In order to do this, Ford set one foot on the announcer’s table and the table collapsed.

We often see this kind of presence of mind on established superstars who are well versed in the pro-wrestling business. However, seeing this positive improvisation puts Ford in a bright light.
