The Street Profits recently faced off against the Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship at the Money In The Bank premium live event.
The match was incredible in the ring, but the main story came from outside the ring, with the announcers drumming home the fact that the Profits hadn’t been getting on as well lately.
This, naturally, led to a lot of talk online about the pair breaking up, with many expecting Montez Ford to go on to rise to the top of the card. However, this talk has led many to speculate about the future of Angelo Dawkins, with many labelling him as the ‘Jannetty’ of the group.
Dawkins was a recent guest on WWE After The Bell, where he spoke about the idea of a potential Street Profits break up. Dawkins admitted that Ford is a star who is destined to become world champion, but he’s tired of people saying that he himself isn’t good, admitting that talk of him being the ‘second fiddle’ to Ford is ‘starting to piss him off’.
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t hear all the talk on the internet all the time about Tez. Tez is a freak of nature. That’s my brother. I know he’s good. I know he’s talented. He’s destined to become the world champion. But then on the hand, I saw people talking about me like I’m some scrub or whatever. That took me back to when I first started. When I first started, people were talking like I wasn’t even going to make it a month at that time. I was like, ‘Oh, all right. We’ll see.’ Now everybody is talking about me in that kind of way, saying I’m like, second fiddle, like I’m just the other guy or whatever.”
“I remember after Smackdown, we landed from Phoenix, landed in Vegas. I got to the hotel and it was just in my head and it was pissing me off to a degree like, you know, me, I’m a quiet guy. I’ll joke around and stuff, but I try not to let a lot of things get to me. That was getting to me. I just remember I went on a long walk down the strip. I walked just to clear my head. I never really like to go walking anyway, but I needed to clear my head.”
“Everybody thinks for some reason, some weird reason, that I’m not good. I’m very unselfish. I do whatever I can to make the match great. Tez is obviously the more out there guy, so I don’t mind being in the background. I star in my role. I’ll play my role. I’m a role player in a way, but then I had to remind everybody like, hey, dawg, you’re gonna have to put some respect on my name like, the talk is starting to piss me off now. Now you’re about to see a different me.”
The Profits lost to the Usos at Money In The Bank due to a refereeing error, when Ford’s shoulder was up following a pin from the Usos, which many have speculated will lead to a rematch at SummerSlam.
