Speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated at the ESPY Awards, Ford and Belair were asked whether they would team together, and “The EST” made it clear that they want to be paired up on-screen.
“That’s a goal of both of ours,” Belair said. “We travel together, we work together, we’re always together, so it’s just being true to ourselves. We eventually want to be on screen together, in and out of the ring.”
Ford chimed in by saying it would be “like a Mr. and Mrs. Smith type thing. That would be amazing.”
Belair and Ford are set to star in a reality show on Hulu, which is expected to premiere later in 2023. In a previous interview, Belair shared her thoughts on the show.
Bianca Belair And Montez Ford Are Chasing The Gold
During the interview, Belair and Ford both detailed how they have their sights set on the gold. “The EST” lost the RAW Women’s Championship to Asuka at WWE Night of Champions, and she has been determined to regain her spot as the champion ever since. She noted that, as a contender, she can showcase her hunger and her drive.
“I’m chasing after it,” says Belair. “Now I can show off my hunger and my drive. I got very used to being champion. It got to the point where my title was my best accessory, it was with me even more than my purse. It feels very weird not having it.”
Likewise, Ford and his tag team partner, Angelo Dawkins, continue to chase the tag team titles. They haven’t held the gold since January 2021, and they have come up short in multiple championship matches since then. Ford made it clear that he and Dawkins want to have a title run in front of the crowd after their previous reign came in the ThunderDome.
“Definitely want to win the undisputed tag team championships,” Ford said. “The Usos had it, Kevin and Sami have it now, and that’s something we need to do. When we had our title reign, it wasn’t in front of crowds. We had a whole title reign in the ThunderDome. We want that run in front of the crowd.”
Belair previously recalled how Ford talked her into keeping her braid. Check out her comments here.
