Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits finally have a group name.
A new stable was created on the WWE SmackDown brand in July 2023 when Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits became a new group. While some fans may have wanted them to use The Hurt Business name that Lashley was associated with earlier in the decade, they did not go with it.
It was reported WrestleVotes this week that the name for the stable is going to be The Pride.
On Lashley’s Twitter/X account, he confirmed the group name by putting “The Pride” in his bio.
“#SmackDown’s All-Mighty, and leader of THE PRIDE ✊🏾 | Former WWE Champion. MMA Fighter | Professional Wrestler | Business Professional | Nutrabolics Athlete.”

Since Lashley put the name on social media, WWE will likely start using it on television beginning with the January 12th edition of Smackdown as well.
It was also reported by PWInsider Elite that Lashley and the Street Profits are officially babyfaces again after being heelish character for a few months.
Bobby Lashley And The Street Profits Looking For Revenge
On the Smackdown New Year’s Revolution episode, Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits were attacked after doing an in-ring promo. The group that attacked The Pride were Karrion Kross and the AOP (Authors of Pain) team of Akam & Rezar, who are back in WWE after being gone for over three years.
The name “Final Testament” could be a group name for Kross & AOP since WWE recently trademarked it, but that also could be used for something else.
Look for The Pride to get revenge against Kross and AOP perhaps as soon as the January 12th edition of Smackdown.
