Angelo Dawkins is a proven success story when it comes to athletic achievements. During his collegiate days, this multifaceted competitor captured national titles in three sports: football, wrestling and track. Dawkins credits his previous athletic accomplishments to his highly competitive nature and distinct ability to outmaneuver those who stand before him.
Fast-forward a few years to Angelo Dawkins, established NXT Superstar, and not much has changed. Dawkins remains a top competitor in his chosen sport, an athlete who’s willing to outhustle and outwork opponents at every turn. Although it took The Curse of Greatness some time to find himself on the black-and-gold brand — the NXT stalwart tested the waters with various tag team partners early in his career — Dawkins experienced a breakthrough moment upon forming The Street Profits with tag team partner Montez Ford.
Beloved for their celebratory ways, which frequently include post-match parties with the NXT Universe, The Sultans of Swag have amassed a legion of followers. More importantly, they’ve done serious work growing into one of sports-entertainment’s most polished teams. Gelling Dawkins’ brute force (the C.O.G.’s right hand packs knockout power) with Ford’s eye-popping aerial attacks, The Street Profits pushed more experienced tandems like The Viking Raiders and Moustache Mountain to the limit. They even gained seasoning outside of NXT, venturing onto the independent circuit for the first time in their careers in 2018. The yield was considerable, a five-month reign as EVOLVE Tag Team Champions. Their hard work continued to pay off at TakeOver: XXV, where the Profits (who were making their long-awaited TakeOver debut) captured the NXT Tag Team Title in an unforgettable Fatal 4-Way Ladder Match.
