Even with a change of scenery going from NXT to Raw, The Street Profits remained their energetic, boisterous selves at the request of Paul Heyman.
On Raw, The Street Profits remained largely the same as they were on NXT and the current Raw Tag Team Champions noted in an interview with Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT that Heyman wanted the duo to keep that same energy. Both Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins spoke highly of Heyman and his creative mind.
"Yeah, Paul’s that guy. He has a mind like any other. He knows exactly what works, what doesn’t work. He knows what things to carve, he just knows the ins and outs of everything, and if you didn’t already know, he’s the advocate for possibly, arguably, one of the greatest superstars of all-time in Brock Lesnar," Ford said.
"He’s one of the guys who as soon as we got up there, he was like ‘ay, ya’ll be ya’ll. We brought you up here for a reason, ya’ll be ya’ll. Don’t do anything else, just be the Street Profits. Do what the Street Profits would usually do. This is just like NXT for you’. And we’re like ‘alright, cool!’ He gave us the keys and we ran with it," Dawkins said. "Everybody plays a hand in it, but it just essentially came down to ‘do what you normally do’ and they trusted us enough to be able to do it. And when we look back, honestly, any time we began to teeter and not really be like the Street Profits a little bit, he’d be like ‘woah, woah, woah! Remember, you’re the Street Profits, keep that same energy’. I think everyone plays a part in the things that we’ve done but at the end of the day it comes down to us putting on show in front of the camera and making everybody happy."
The Street Profits have held the Raw Tag Team Championship since March 2 when they defeated Seth Rollins and Murphy on Raw.
