Street Profits won a Fatal 4-Way Ladder Match to capture the vacant NXT Tag Team Championship
With a united hunger for glory, The Street Profits saw their championship desire realized, and in the words of rapper Nas, “Street dreams are made of these.” Surviving absolute carnage, Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins rose to the top of the ladder, in the literal and metaphorical sense, to become the new NXT Tag Team Champions.
The historic victory caps a big year for the scrappy duo, who’ve been clawing for an opportunity to prove themselves for several years. Though they came close against former champions The Viking Raiders, the missed opportunity gave way to a career-defining statement inside the Webster Bank Arena. In the face of that defiant victory, though, was an inimitable offensive line that featured former champions Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish, a couple of savages in Wesley Blake & Steve Cutler and a pair of bruisers named Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch.
The human demolition derby gave the NXT Universe plenty of reasons to shower the ring with “This is awesome” chants, including a textbook double German Suplex from Lorcan & Burch onto Blake & Cutler that sent the ladder flying across the ring. And speaking of “flying,” Dawkins took to the air within minutes of the match, flattening everyone on the outside to clear the lane for the pair to secure a victory. However, several obstacles stood in their way, including O’Reilly & Fish, whose calculated offense slowed everyone. At one point, the nefarious duo applied a double underhook combination that sent Ford bouncing off the ladder. Another obstacle came when Jaxson Ryker emerged and pummeled everyone in sight to assist his Forgotten Sons brothers. Ryker’s appearance forced a temporary truce between the other three teams, and they fired back tenfold with an all-hands-on-deck approach that left the Forgotten Sons powerhouse buried under the ladder.
Blake & Cutler used the distraction to their advantage, waylaying the competition before climbing up the ladder while the vestiges from this war were left spread in and around the canvas. Refusing to take another L, Ford & Dawkins sprung out of nowhere to thwart The Savages of NXT from grabbing the hoisted championship titles. With Dawkins launching a spear on Cutler to toss him out of the ring, Ford leaped from the turnbuckle onto the ladder to toss Blake off and capture the coveted prize that’s eluded them for so long.
With the grand prizes of NXT’s tag team division finally in hand, Ford & Dawkins danced their way through the audience, kicking off an epic celebration with the adoring members of the NXT Universe.
