This year WWE’s draft saw many stars switch brands and even saw a few stars called up from NXT to The Main roster. WWE’s also originally had plans to split up a popular tag team but those plans were nixed at the last minute.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed WWE’s initial intentions for Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins in the WWE Draft. They wanted to leave Dawkins on SmackDown, but it was always their plan to move Ford over. After all, Ford’s wife Bianca Belair was already called by RAW in the draft and WWE doesn’t like breaking up married couples.
By the way, did you hear that the Street Profits were almost broken up? They were. Montez Ford was always going to RAW, but they were thinking of leaving Angelo Dawkins on SmackDown and breaking up the team which blows my mind.”
It was noted that the company did in fact split up most of the women tag teams except for their WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
