The Street Profits Reflect On Winning The Raw Tag Team Championship Less Than A Year After Debuting

The Street Profits have owned the Monday Night Raw tag team division in 2020 and show no signs of slowing down now that they have been moved over to Friday Night SmackDown.

Prior to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins were able to be on the positive end of one of the only WWE championship title changes to take place this year in front of an actual audience. They defeated Seth Rollins and Murphy to win their first WWE Raw Tag Team Championship, with some help from Kevin Owens, on an episode of Monday Night Raw.

Speaking with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports, Ford and Dawkins describe how much that moment meant to them, especially because they were given the opportunity to defeat a former World Heavyweight Champion like Seth Rollins.

“I wasn’t expecting to make that kind of a noise that early on Raw, when we were there, but the opportunity presented itself ... so we took full advantage of it,” said Dawkins. “To be able to win the Raw Tag Team titles off of Seth [Rollins] and Murphy – especially a guy like Seth Rollins who's slayed 'The Beast' twice, been Universal Champion, been WWE Champion, has pretty much done it all – to beat a guy like that to become a champion in WWE was significant in itself right there.”

Montez adds, "Absolutely. It just lets you know, 'Hey man, when those lights are on and it’s time to shine, you take full advantage of it.' Those are the type of moments that come few and far between. Tomorrow is not even promised."

He concluded, "So if you get that chance to go out there and make a mark and shine on the big stage with like Seth Rollins, big huge name, and you do it. Like Dawks said, you take full advantage of that because you want to be remembered. You want that mark to be implanted and I think that’s what we did so far. At this point, there’s no signs of us slowing down. We’re kinda still getting our hands wet."
