WWE star Montez Ford would love to face Rey and Dominik Mysterio in a ‘battle of the Frog Splashes’.
The Street Profits wrestler – who currently holds the SmackDown Tag Team Championships with his partner Angelo Dawkins – is looking forward to tangling with new duos since moving to the blue brand in the recent draft.
He exclusively told Metro.co.uk: ‘I would love to work with Rey and Dominik as well! To get in the ring with Rey Mysterio, that’s mind blowing. It’s giving me chills thinking about all the stuff that’s happened this year.
‘Definitely, Rey and Dominik would be someone we’d love to get in the ring with. Just because of their dynamic, and you know, Dominik has a very nice Frog Splash as well. [laughs]
‘Same thing with Rey, so it’d pretty much be the battle of the Frog Splashes, so I think that’d be a whole lot of fun.’

For now, Dawkins and Ford are focused on the team of Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode – who recently beat them on SmackDown in non-title action.
‘They got a quick, questionable victory on us, but you know what? Every dog has its day and we’re still the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions,’ he smiled.
The Street Profits’ reign with the gold had a bizarre start, as they and The New Day simply swapped their respective belts after being traded to opposite brands.
‘It definitely counts,’ Montez insisted when the subject of the exchange was brought up. ‘We pulled a Ted DiBiase, it counts.
‘We’re triple crown now, they’re 10-time WWE World Tag Team Champions, which is crazy when you think about it. It’s something, man.’
The two tandems went on to face off in something of a ‘dream’ match at Survivor Series, which was a special moment for fans and the performers in the ring.
‘It’s a dream come true, man,’ Montez added. ‘I don’t think it’s the end. It’s gonna be one of those things that keep going, because there’s so much respect on both sides.
‘The respect is knowing, as great as they wanna be, they know we wanna be great too.’
