Last weekend, WWE Clash of Champions was graced with the royal presence of King Booker when Booker T appeared backstage with the Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford.) He dropped catchphrases and promoted the King of the Ring final with the former NXT Tag Team Champions who have become a regular presence on Raw, but have yet to wrestle a match on the main roster.
On his podcast, “The Hall of Fame with Booker T and Brad Gilmore,” Booker T spoke highly of the Street Profits and said the Clash of Champions was about using his old character to give the rub to the new team, something he’d like to do more of in the future. Booker T said, “I’m thinking about putting my name in to manage the Street Profits, bring these guys to the next level.” He later clarified that he’d want to be more of a mentor.
T has some ideas for how he would influence the Profits as their mentor/manager:
Just put a little bit more street on them, that’s all… It would be no playing, no jiving, just business. And that’s the thing, you know, I love to entertain. That’s one of the best parts about the business is going out and entertaining. But when you can go out there and really put them fifth ward beats on them boys, then it becomes something totally different.
When the people look at you differently, other than just an entertainer, that’s when it becomes something totally different to you when you go out and perform. You actually feel it in the soul, deep down in one’s bones, and that’s what I loved about the business, an I think that’s what I could bring to the Street Profits.
He also complimented Ford’s athleticism but said he would “slow him down.” You can check out the whole podcast segment here:
