Ford took a HORRIBLE bump on this week's show.

Montez Ford botch

As you can see from the gif above, Montez Ford took a horrible bump while diving out of the ring on this week's episode of WWE Raw.

Teaming with fellow Street Profits member Angelo Dawkins to face Angel Garza, Austin Theory, and Seth Rollins, Ford went for a big flip to the outside with Theory seemingly set to catch him, but the NXT up-and-comer wasn't ready, meaning Montez hit the ground hard. Austin came in for criticism in the aftermath, though it sounds like the spot wasn't in the script.

Per Bryan Alvarez on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Live, Ford was never supposed to make it out of the ring. Seth Rollins was supposed to trip him before he could execute the dive but the timings were off, as Montez was already long gone before 'The Monday Night Messiah' clambered onto the apron for his interference, hence everything going wrong.


A rough visual, though Ford was in good spirits on social media after the show:-


The Street Profits will defend their Raw Tag Team Championships against Garza and Theory at WrestleMania 36 this weekend, with Theory a replacement for the injured Andrade.
