A former NXT Tag Team Champion says he is open to the possibility of returning to the “place he used to practice”.
At Money in the Bank, The Street Profits challenged The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships. After an intense battle that has been dubbed an instant classic by fans and critics alike, it was The Usos who came out on top to continue the most dominant run of their lengthy career.
However, things might not be as clear as they seem as, when the referee’s hand hit the mat for three, Montez Ford had already got his shoulder up, leading many to hope that a rematch is on the cards in the near future.
Before Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins were putting on five-star matches on the main roster, however, they were already a popular duo during their time in NXT. The Street Profits first teamed up in 2016 on the then black and gold brand, initially performing at live events before becoming mainstays of the weekly NXT show.
The Street Profits won the NXT Tag Team Championships in June 2019 and held them for 75 days before being defeated by Undisputed Era’s Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly. They were then called up to the Raw roster that October as part of the WWE Draft.
During a recent interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Angelo Dawkins was asked if a return to NXT was a possibility. While Dawkins wouldn’t commit to such a move, he did admit that there were a lot of rising stars he would like to face.
“Oh, you know, it’s up in the air. I don’t want to say never say never. I see a lot of teams down there that are doing some things. The Creed Brothers, got a lot of love for them. They’re from Ohio, best state in the world (laughs).
“I’ve seen them, Trick (Williams) and Carmelo Hayes, those guys I like them a lot. I’m a big fan of Chase U, Chase University. But yeah man, I wouldn’t mind going back down there, see my boy Apollo is down there so I wouldn’t mind going back to the place I used to practice all those years.”
