The former WWE Tag Team Champion Montez Ford main-evented against Tribal Chief Roman Reigns on September 14th episode of Friday Night SmackDown and got the huge props for his performance.

Louis Dangoor of GiveMeSport reported that the WWE’s higher-ups viewed this Ford’s match against Reigns as a ‘trial’ match to see whether or not there was potential for him to become a major solo star. 
According to this report, several people of backstage thoroughly impressed with Montez Ford’s singles performance against Reigns. It was also noted that company is in serious consideration of pushing Ford as singles superstar.

🚨 I’ve been told that WWE is considering “serious push” for Montez Ford as a singles star. His match with Roman Reigns on SmackDown last month was seen as a “trial”, which he passed with flying colours.

Previously, it was reported that WWE had discussion of splitting up The Street Profits during the WWE Draft this year but it didn’t happen and Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins moved to Monday Night Raw. 
This report also notes that objective behind potentially breaking up former SmackDown Tag Team Champions was for Ford to receive a serious singles push. This report further states that the ‘door is still open’ for him to break out as a solo star on the same brand as Dawkins.
Sources further told to GiveMeSport that WWE attempts to keep actual couples on the same brand, so, Ford ended up on the Raw roster as his spouse, Bianca Belair, got drafted there too. Another reported reason for the tag team talent’s draft move is that the company’s higher-ups feel he will have more top superstars to work with on the Red brand.
“Regardless of whether he went to the brand on his own, or with Angelo Dawkins, WWE always wanted to have Montez Ford on Raw. We’ve been told this was partially because WWE tries keep real-life couples on the same roster, with Belair being moved over to Raw, but also because higher-ups feel as if Ford has more top talent to work with on the red brand,” wrote Louis Dangoor of GiveMeSport.
