The Street Profits are indeed ready for a new day.
At Survivor Series, the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions will face the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions when Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods take on Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins in a first-ever tag team match.
Following all eight men having success on the November 20, 2020 episode of Friday Night SmackDown, Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins appeared on WWE Talking Smack to provide some final hype before this first-ever match on Sunday.
Departing from their usual jovial demeanor, Ford and Dawkins appeared upset that Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods did not thank them for “carrying the team” on SmackDown before going on to say that they feel they have been underestimated by the WWE veterans and they're looking forward to the opportunity to show who the team of the future is at Survivor Series.
Dawkins began, “We know what we're up against with The New Day, with Woods and Kofi, they bring it each and every night, they step foot in the ring, but we know that we definitely going to bring the smoke as well and that's how we roll. Each and every time we step foot in the ring, we bring the smoke, we bring the swag like nobody can. That's how we always is and always gonna be.”
Ford added, “Respect is not something that comes and goes as like a new day does, you know, a new day shows up and then is tomorrow. You kind of call us tomorrow. A new day always shines up. It's all beautiful and bright, sometimes sunny, and shiny, sometimes rainy and gloomy. But that new day always turns into tomorrow. The Street Profits are tomorrow. That's what we can be signified as at Survivor Series -- the historic, the historic WWE Survivor Series.”
Ford continued, “They kind of like shortchanged us, kind of like misinterpret us, like, 'ah, they're kids.' They've shown it. They've shown it on WWE SmackDown. It was just kind of like going a little tit for tat. But then they saw the work that we can do and have done. At Survivor Series, we will continue to do what we have been doing and that is show that we're the superior team and the best of the best.”
Paul Heyman would conclude the segment by saying that as long as “Profits are up,” that means profits are up for the SmackDown brand.
