Backstage News on Street Profits
Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins have assumed the roles of narrators for Monday Night Raw. Every week, the charismatic tag team can be seen backstage interacting with talent and getting fans excited for upcoming matches. However, they haven’t competed on Raw. According to Dave Meltzer (h/t WrestlingInc) the plan is to hold off on their participation in matches.
The plan is to get Street Profits over with fans before debuting them in the ring. This will make their first match feel like more of a big deal than other recent tag team call-ups. Paul Heyman reportedly made the call to bring Street Profits to the main roster in this capacity. When their first match will be is still not known.
