WWE SmackDown Star’s Heel Turn Confirmed

WWE SmackDown Arena

It looks like WWE SmackDown has some new top bad guys.

In recent weeks Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins have shown a more vicious edge on WWE’s main roster. Swapping the sportswear for suits, the former Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Champions have aligned themselves with Bobby Lashley, who is delighted with the change in character.

The new Profits made an impact almost immediately, interrupting a tag team match between The Brawling Brutes and The OC on the August 4th episode of SmackDown.

While fans might be supportive of the new trio, that could change with WWE seeing the new group as heels according to a report by WrestleVotes who stated:

“The latest “talent board”, which is used internally, saw an update post Payback on 9/3. Interesting news from the SmackDown side lists LA Knight as the top babyface. In addition, Bobby Lashley & The Street Profits are now categorized as heels.”

As also noted in the report LA Knight is now considered SmackDown’s top babyface star putting him ahead of the likes of AJ Styles, Sheamus, and US Champion Rey Mysterio in the pecking order on Friday nights as his stock in the company continues to rise.
