The Rock has predicted that Montez Ford will one day become World Champion, saying that he’ll be rooting for him all of the way.
During his time in WWWE, Montez Ford has become a huge fan favourite and one of the real unsung heroes of the entire company. Ever since he stepped into a WWE ring alongside his partner Angelo Dawkins, the pair have electrified crowds with their high-octane in-ring style, picking up plenty of championship gold along the way.
Appearing as a recent guest on the Out of Character podcast with Ryan Satin, Ford discussed life and career to date, which includes his admiration for WWE megastar The Rock. The high-flying star described The Great One as an inspiration, not only to himself but his entire family.
“The Rock, I was already hooked, but in school I would write my Ks how he would sign his name. Style, dress, electrifying. Everything he says he is. Just how he is as a person as well. A huge inspiration to myself, my family, getting us through so many hard and rough times going through personally. That’s why I hold true and dear the Rock to my heart.”
Upon hearing the comments, The Rock took to social media to heap praise on the young star, tipping him to become World Champion.
Just taking a moment to tell this man @montezfordwwe how much I appreciate his kind and beautiful words ——– —
We’ve never shared the ring together, but pro wrestlers all have a very special bond.
Pro wrestling is a very unique, intense and wild culture that’s not for everybody.
When you love the wrestling business, you become very respectful about the wrestling business.
And when you’re respectful about the wrestling business, you become PASSIONATE about the wrestling business.
It seeps deep into your DNA.
Fans can always sense who’s passionate inside that squared circle ~ and who’s not.
This man is passionate.
We share that DNA.
(And he flys like the Superfly —-)
Keep kicking ass brother and give my love to your family.
And when you become world champion one day, I’ll be right there rooting ya on —
Montez Ford was most recently in action on the February 21st episode of Monday Night Raw where along with Street Profits partner Dawkins, they were defeated by the Alpha Academy.
