The Street Profits Talk about Their Time in EVOLVE and Being Ready for NXT Gold


The Street Profits, Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford spoke to about a multitude of topics including their time in EVOLVE and being ready to shine on NXT. Below are some highlights:

The Street Profits on their growth as a team:

“For us to grow, we had to step outside of our comfort zone, which meant step outside the WWE Performance Center, NXT and step into the independent scene. We took our talents to EVOLVE and we started from scratch. Teams like The Undisputed ERA and The Viking Experience all had experience on the indies and managed to turn that experience into success pretty quickly in NXT. We realized we were lacking that experience. We went to EVOLVE, started to make our mark and won their Tag Team Titles. We proudly defended those titles against their best teams and in doing so, we learned different styles that allowed us to expand our arsenal. Through that process of having to grind, we became even more in-tune to who we really are and that was when we knew we were taking that big step towards success.”
“Our track record speaks for itself. Angelo Dawkins and I never had one match on the independent scene. We are both homegrown WWE NXT talents, we went to EVOLVE, were granted a tag team title opportunity and succeeded on the first attempt. No indies, first match together in the independent scene and we became Tag Team Champions. With that note, just know, if given the chance, it would be the same result in NXT.”

Montez Ford on The Viking Experience getting called up:

“It’s all about who’s NXT/next … See what I did there? Who’s next to carry this NXT brand? That’s why everyone is so hungry in NXT, because everybody wants to be next. He want next. She want next. They want next. Everybody want next. But truth is, we got next. And nobody is more poised to be next than The Street Profits.”

The Street Profits on wanting gold in NXT:

“It’s time for Montez and myself to have a title opportunity because we have been battle-tested. We went through a slump and then we found a way to bounce back with a huge win to get us back on track.”
“It’s simple, we’ve never had one chance and it’s time. We — Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford, The Street Profits — have never had an NXT Title opportunity. Never. We haven’t received one on NXT TV, TakeOver, never. After nearly two years of doing this, not one chance? We’ve seen so many people get multiple chances at the Tag Team Championship while we have not gotten any.”
