Montez Ford was recently a guest on Booker T's Hall of Fame podcast, where he spoke about the potential of having a singles run in WWE.
"I hear certain chatter, and I really don't really buy too much yet, because I feel like my job and task at hand is being the greatest tag team, right now, in this modern-day, here. So I feel like a lot of times, like, I'm so focused on that so much at this hand, like you said, until it happens and when that happens, that's when I put my full attention and energy into it right now. But right now, I got to take care of my brother, you know? That's how it is. It's been that way ever since I've been in the fleet. I take care of the guy right next to me and finish the task at hand."
Ford explained why he's focused on the tag-team division.
"I feel like sometimes to a lot of guys, they'll get the chatter, and obviously, it didn't happen with [Booker T], because like you said, you didn't think about to happen, but obviously [the talk of a singles run] when it's happening, it's inspiring and motivating. But a lot of times, we got to finish the task at hand right in front of us. Because if I take the focus off of this, there may not be any more triple crowns, or tag team tower runs, and there may not be any historic nine-year runs."
Despite this, Montez Ford does one day dream of being WWE Champion.
"But I will say, on other hand, [being WWE Champion] has been a dream as a little kid. My mom still sends me photos, all the time, of me holding up my own WWE Championship and even me having my hand out in front of my face. My little mini dream. But it's always a dream to be a World Champion, and I don't think that ever goes away. I feel like all the guys and everyone that's here, if you're not trying to be the guy then — obviously you want to make money, that's the main thing, but you always want to the man, too."
