Lashley seemingly confirms name of his faction with Street Profits

Bobby Lashley and Street Profits have been allied on WWE SmackDown for a while now. In the months since The All Mighty first approached Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins last summer, they haven’t taken on a group name (and despite my partner in blog Geno Mrosko’s best efforts, “Suit Profits” hasn’t caught on).

However, our most recent Rumor Roundup brought word via WrestleVotes that the trio would be getting a new moniker. And in the hours leading up to the Jan. 12 SmackDown, Lashley’s updated his Twitter/X bio with the rumored faction name...

Bobby Lashley’s X

I guess he’s also revealed that he’s the main lion in this Pride, but that’s not particularly surprising. His emoji choice also plays into the double entendre of the group’s new handle.

Let us know what you think of “The Pride” in the comments below. Then join us in our live blog for SmackDown tonight and we’ll see how the freshly-named trio responds to last week’s attack from Karrion Kross & AOP (who might be dubbed “Final Testament”).

And in the weeks to come, we’ll see if Lashley decides to add members to his group. Maybe a woman (or two?) to counteract Scarlett?
