The Street Profits Talk To The Miami Herald

The Street Profits Reveal The Origin Of Their NXT Tag-Team Name

The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) recently spoke with The Miami Herald for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On how the team formed:

Montez Ford: “Me and [Angelo] have similarities. He looked across the room one day. I looked across the room. He’s seen my work ethic. I’ve seen his work ethic. He likes to get down. I like to get down. That’s how we formed. It’s as simple as that. It’s two guys who have the same everything.”

On the origins of their tag-team name:

Angelo Dawkins: “That was definitely us. We were like, ‘Yo, what would be hot right now? What should we name ourselves?’ We went down the list, and as soon as we both said Street Profits, we were like, ‘Oh man. That gotta nice little ring to it.'”

Ford: “We’re profits. We’re advancing in life. We’re advancing the tag team division. We’re advancing the goal. We’re advancing the skill. We’re advancing the style. We’re advancing everything. The profit is an advance, and that’s what we do.”

On Dawkins being scouted by WWE during his amateur wrestling days:

Dawkins: “I was an amateur wrestler at Harper College, and we were at national duals, and [WWE scout and former pro wrestling] Jerry Brisco recruits all the amateur wrestlers, because he also had an amateur [wrestling] background as well [Oklahoma State]. I was getting ready for my match. I ended up going against the number three guy in the nation, and I ended up beating him, and I remember my coach telling me, ‘Hey, Hey, Jerry Brisco’s here. Jerry Brisco’s here.’ I was like, ‘Huh. Yea. Alright.’ They’re like, ‘Vince McMahon’s right hand man.’ I was like, ‘Right. All right. Whatever.’ Then Jerry Brisco’s right there. I’m like, ‘Oh, snap. They weren’t lying.'”
