WWE sensation Montez Ford has expressed his desire to challenge the reigning Judgment Day duo, Finn Balor and Damian Priest, for the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championship at this year's WrestleMania. In a candid conversation with Ariel Helwani on "The MMA Hour," Ford, accompanied by his spouse and WWE luminary Bianca Belair, shared his aspirations for WrestleMania 40, indicating a potential showdown that could see him and Angelo Dawkins reclaim the tag team titles after a nearly three-year hiatus.
Ford, a prominent figure on "WWE SmackDown," articulated his vision for the upcoming WrestleMania, emphasizing his eagerness to compete against the current titleholders, Judgment Day. "It's been a substantial amount of time since we've held the tag team championships, and I firmly believe the moment is ripe for us to step back into the spotlight and reclaim what was once ours," Ford stated.

The conversation also veered towards potential matchups involving Bianca Belair. Ford hints at a possible clash between Belair and Rhea Ripley, a vital member of The Judgment Day, following a hypothetical victory in the women's Royal Rumble match.
"Considering the dynamics within The Judgment Day, especially with Rhea Ripley holding a championship, it sets an intriguing stage for Bianca at WrestleMania 40," Ford added. Belair, known as the "EST of WWE," shared her enthusiasm for the proposed scenario, recognizing the unique challenge posed by Judgment Day.
"Facing off against Judgment Day presents an unparalleled opportunity, and if The Street Profits are gearing up for a confrontation with them, aligning my potential match against Rhea Ripley would indeed make for an electrifying narrative at WrestleMania," Belair remarked.
Despite Belair's high aspirations, Bayley's triumph halted her quest in the women's Royal Rumble. Yet, the prospect of Ford and Dawkins challenging Judgment Day at WrestleMania remains a focal point for WWE enthusiasts, eagerly awaiting what promises to be a riveting clash for the tag team championship, adding an extra layer of excitement to the already highly anticipated event.
