Back from the commercial, we saw Ziggler still dominating Ford, and Roode tagged in. Roode and Ziggler came in and kept attacking Ford’s problematic ribs.

Ziggler kept taunting Ford and asked him to reach to Angelo Dawkins. After throwing Roode into the turnbuckle, Ford managed to tag in Dawkins. The latter dominated both Ziggler and Roode for a while and hit a neck breaker for a near fall.

The Street Profits fought well at SmackDown

Dawkins kept dominating both of his opponents. He hit the Atonement on Ziggler, and Ford followed it up with a Frog Splash. However, the pin was broken after Roode attacked Ford. Then, in a quick turn of events, Ford pinned and retained the title with a quick roll-up on Roode.

After the match, The Street Profits retreated as Roode and Ziggler argued with the referee. However, the referee silenced them with a suspension threat.

The frustration of Ziggler and Roode is increasing day by day. They keep getting multiple chances at the tag titles but fail to capitalise. On the other hand, The Street Profits might end this year as the tag team champions. However, Montez Ford might have an injury due to his damaged ribs. If he does not take care, it might be a little troubling for the team in the future.
