Street Profits member Angelo Dawkins recently appeared on The No. 1 Ranked Show with R.J. Young, where he talked about the moment in which he understood that the WWE Universe was behind him and Montez Ford.
“Brooklyn, 2019, when he faced Murphy and Seth Rollins for the Raw Tag Team Championships, it was nuts. We wrestled in Brooklyn the year before while we were in NXT, it was right before NXT TakeOver and the crowd was receptive, but fast forward a year later and we were in the spotlight, going for the tag titles and Brooklyn was behind us. We had a promo before the match and the first thing that came out of Tez’ mouth was ‘Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?’ and they started going nuts and they’ve been with us ever since. It was like, ‘Oh snap, we got these dudes.'”
Dawkins also recalled that after the match he was so pumped that he would have wrestled again and again if necessary: “I felt relieved, but I felt pumped. I almost wanted to go back out there and wrestle again. It was like that. That’s what the crowd enegery brings. It brings that adrenaline and emotion like ‘we’ve got to put on a show. They’re behind us, we have to handle business and do our thing,’ if we don’t and they are behind us, it’s going to be a rough one. If we go out there and show out like we’re capable of…the crowd was with us the whole time and they went nuts because we ended up winning and becoming Raw Tag Team Champions. I felt like I could go out there and wrestle again, that’s how wild it was that day.”
The Street Profits later captured the RAW Tag Team Championships and later exchanged them for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships with The New Day following the 2020 Draft.
