During his time as Executive Director of Monday Night Raw, Paul Heyman tried to push several young wrestlers, including the likes of Aleister Black, Murphy, Austin Theory, Angel Garza and more.
One of the first acts that he really tried to push was The Street Profits. Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins debuted on Raw on the July 1 episode. Since then, they’ve gone on to win the Raw Tag Team Championships.
While speaking with Kenny McIntosh of Inside the Ropes, Montez Ford opened up about his relationship with Paul Heyman, claiming that he owes Paul his “friggin’ life”:
“I would like to say I owe Paul Heyman my friggin’ life man. I know both me collectively, me and Dawkins, owe him pretty much our lives. He has always been there since day one. I remember specifically the first time we encountered Paul Heyman and him just giving us a wealth of knowledge. I remember when we first debuted on Monday Night RAW, I remember specifically he was the first person that came and found us and talked to us and just pretty much took us under his wing and just, there is so much I can say and describe, he’s given us a whole bunch of stuff, and he’s pretty much been there the whole way, give us a whole lot of motivation, insight, you guys know.”
Street Profits will be defending their championships next against Angel Garza and Andrade, in what has the makings of a top tag team title match.
