Former NXT Tag Team Champions The Street Profits have said farewell to the black-and-gold brand. The team, comprised of Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford, shared an emotional goodbye to NXT during a show in Vancouver.
WWE NXT’s Twitter account uploaded a video capturing Dawkins’ message to the fans, accompanied by the caption:
“The #StreetProfits’ @AngeloDawkins had an emotional goodbye to the #NXTUniverse in #NXTVancouver with @MontezFordWWE by his side. #WeAreNXT”
The Street Profits made their final NXT appearance at a show in Vancouver last night and bid an emotional farewell to the NXT Universe.
The moment was particularly poignant for Angelo Dawkins, who has been in WWE’s Developmental system for seven years and will now be moving to the Raw brand with his partner Montez Ford.
In the video, Ford reminded his tag team partner of his seven-year journey to the main roster. The crowd then starts a “You deserve it” chant causing Dawkins to break into tears.
“I ain’t really good at goodbyes either,” Dawkins confessed. “But…as we all know saying from the bottom of our hearts: everybody here is NXT!

The staff had been not too long ago drafted to Monday Night time RAW after weeks of cameo appearances and backstage segments.
The choice to characteristic them was apparently the concept of RAW Government Director, Paul Heyman. He’s reportedly a fan of The Avenue Income work and sees mainstream potential in them for the principle roster.
During last week’s episode of RAW, the Street Profits were beaten down by The O.C. in a backstage segment, suggesting a big feud for them out the gate.
