When you bring the swag like Montez Ford can, you might be forgiven for bragging a bit.
Recruited into the WWE Performance Center in 2015, Ford was destined for big things from day one. Even though he had no prior experience in sports-entertainment, Ford’s athleticism demanded such high expectations. A track star in his youth, Ford shattered high school records in events like the 200- and 400-meter dash before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he accumulated a perfect 300 score on the physical fitness test. King Tez has been no less impressive since joining NXT, either. A 62-inch box jump and 10-foot, 10-inch broad jump are the kind of feats that most men can only dream of. For Ford, “issa light day” at the WWE Performance Center.
Ford carries that same confidence into the NXT ring, where he teams with Angelo Dawkins as the highly successful Street Profits. The Sultans of Swag have gained a massive following among the NXT Universe thanks to their party-starting antics — Ford and Dawkins are rarely seen without a red cup in hand, looking for a cause to celebrate — but their fun-loving ways never come at the expense of their win-loss record.
Over time, and after a few setbacks that only seemed to make them stronger, The Street Profits have gelled into one of NXT’s elite tandems, a status that was cemented when the duo won a frenetic Fatal 4-Way Ladder Match to capture the vacant NXT Tag Team Titles. While Dawkins provides veteran leadership and a hard-right hand that would stop a rhinoceros in its tracks, Ford is the team’s dynamic high-flyer, a fast-moving terror whose gas tank never runs low.
Stir it up and raise your cup, because The Street Profits are ready to bring NXT’s Tag Team division to new heights.
