The Street Profits began a heel turn last summer when they aligned with Bobby Lashley, but that was cut short fairly quickly and Montez Ford addressed why. The Pride were initially presented as heels but turned babyface later in the year, something Ford explained the reasoning for on Busted Open Radio. You can check out the highlights below (h/t to Wrestling Inc)>

On the aborted heel turn: “A couple of months ago, we were trying to … make the fans not like us. They just [said], ‘Nah, we’re not having it.'”

O)n deciding to back off the turn: “When the fans are passionate about something, when they want something, when they demand it, for the most part, they’re so intent with it. You know that passion is real because it comes from the heart. They have every right to feel that way.”
