Angelo Dawkins is open to the idea of The Street Profits returning to NXT if they win the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships at Money in the Bank.

They will challenge The Usos at the event for the coveted titles, which could turn out to be a good match. Before arriving on the main roster, Dawkins competed in NXT as a singles competitor and was later paired with Montez Ford. They held the NXT Tag Team Championships during their time on the black and gold brand.

In a recent interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Angelo Dawkins stated that he wouldn't mind going back to NXT and he named several stars on the brand that he's a fan of.

"Oh, you know, it's up in the air. I don't want to say never say never. I see a lot of teams down there that are doing some things. The Creed Brothers, got a lot of love for them. They're from Ohio, best state in the world (laughs). I've seen them, Trick (Williams) and Carmelo Hayes, those guys I like them a lot. I'm a big fan of Chase U, Chase University. But yeah man, I wouldn't mind going back down there, see my boy Apollo is down there so I wouldn't mind going back to the place I used to practice all those years." (10:12-11:08)
