Angelo Dawkins: Bio
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 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 — he 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 WWE 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 WWE, 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 Titles in an unforgettable Fatal 4-Way Ladder Match.
Dawkins and Ford were selected by Raw during the 2019 WWE Draft, and they've already competed in some thrilling bouts with some of the red brand's top tandems, including The Viking Raiders and The O.C. They came up clutch, too, when they defeated Seth Rollins and Murphy to capture the Raw Tag Team Titles in what was their last chance ever to win the championships.
The champions followed up with an "anything you can do, I can do better" series of competitions against The Viking Raiders. Then, while still Raw Tag Team Champions, Ford and Dawkins were drafted to SmackDown, which used a first-round pick in the 2020 WWE Draft to select them!
With the WWE Universe by their side and a red cup in hand, The Street Profits are destined to be major players in the tag team division for years to come.
