Street Profits (2017-present)

During 2017, he formed a tag team with Montez Ford and became known collectively as the Street Profits. They debuted under this name on July 12, winning their debut match against The Metro Brothers (Chris Metro & JC Metro). During the July 29 house show, the Street Profits teamed with Asuka in a mixed tag match defeating Riddick Moss, Sage Beckett & Tino Sabbatelli. For the remainder of 2017, the Street Profits enjoyed a success in the ring, eventually earning a title match for the NXT Tag Team Championship held by The Undisputed ERA (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly). They were unsuccessful in their title match challenge held on December 14, but later challenged in a rematch on December 16, but were again defeated by The Undisputed ERA.

The Street Profits continued their tag title hunt in 2018, joining Number One Contender matches whenever possible. Between their contendership matches, they took part in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic where they eliminated team Heavy Machinery in the first round. Their first title match of 2018 was on February 22 where they were defeated by the defending Tag Team Champions The Undisputed ERA. They lost to The Undisputed ERA in a title rematch during the March 2 house show. On March 7, The Street Profits returned for the semifinals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, where they were eliminated by The Authors of Pain (Akam & Rezar). During the first night of the 2018 WrestleMania Axxess weekend event beginning on April 5, The Street Profits entered a NXT Tag Team Title Invitational, eliminating Adrian Jaoude & Cezar Bononi in the first round. On third night of the Axxess event, The Street Profits were eliminated in the semifinal by Trent Seven & Tyler Bate. During the May 3 house show, The Street Profits challenged The Undisputed ERA in a title match but were unsuccessful in winning the Tag Team Championship. They lost to The Undisputed ERA in title rematches during the May 18 and May 20 house shows. During the June 2 house show, both Dawkins and Montez Ford competed separately in the Number One Contendership Battle Royal for the NXT North American Championship. During the June 30 house show, Dawkins picked up a rare singles victory, defeating NXT rookie Rocky. During the remainder of June and throughout July, The Street Profits competed against teams including The Undisputed ERA and The Mighty (Nick Miller & Shane Thorne). At the August 2 house show, The Street Profits defeated The Undisputed ERA in a title match but failed to win the Tag Team titles due to a disqualification victory. On August 4, a No Disqualification title rematch was held, resulting in The Undisputed ERA retaining their titles. Through the remainder of August, The Street Profits wrestled against teams including The Forgotten Sons (Steve Cutler & Wesley Blake), Adrian Jaoude & Cezar Bononi and Undisputed ERA members Adam Cole & Roderick Strong. During the September 7 house show, The Street Profits competed in a Number One Contendership match for NXT Tag Team titles against Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan. After reaching a time limit draw, a second match was ordered, resulting in Burch & Lorcan successfully defeating the Street Profits. For the remainder of the month, The Street Profits competed against teams including Dominik Dijakovic & Kassius Ohno, The Mighty and The Forgotten Sons. They finished the month with a match during the September 29 house show, teaming with Jeet Rama in defeating NXT newcomers Luke Menzies, Rinku Singh & Saurav Gurjar.

Beginning at the October 11 house show, The Street Profits scored three consecutive victories in tag team matches against The Forgotten Sons (Jaxson Ryker & Wesley Blake). The team made their television return during the October 17 episode of NXT (aired October 31) where they defeated The Mighty (Nick Miller & Shane Thorne). During the October 20 house show, The Street Profits teamed with the reigning NXT North American Champion Ricochet in defeating The Undisputed ERA (Bobby Fish, Kyle O'Reilly & Roderick Strong). A week later at the October 27 house show, Dawkins and Montez Ford competed individually in the Halloween Costume Battle Royal No. 1 Contendership match for the NXT North American Championship. Although successful in their debut in EVOLVE Wrestling winning the promotion's Tag Team titles, The Street Profits once more challenged in NXT for the Tag Team titles that long eluded their career. Their title match was held during the November 1 house show against the reigning NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O'Reilly & Roderick Strong. As in previous encounters against The Undisputed ERA in title matches, The Street Profits on this occasion did not succeed in becoming double tag team champions. Two nights later however during the November 3 house show, The Street Profits rebounded from their previous loss, defeating Adrian Jaoude & Cezar Bononi.

EVOLVE Wrestling (2018-present)

Due to WWE's business relationship with EVOLVE Wrestling, several NXT wrestlers including The Street Profits, were allowed to participate in an independent show produced by Evolve. On October 28 at EVOLVE 114, The Street Profits debuted in a tag team title match defeating the reigning champions team Catch Point (Chris Dickinson & Jaka) to win the Evolve Tag Team Championship. This marked the first championship The Street Profits have won together in their careers as a tag team. The newly-crowned champions returned on November 9, for the EVOLVE 115 pay-per-view, where they won their first tag team title defense defeating team The WorkHorsemen (Anthony Henry & JD Drake). The following night at the EVOLVE 116 pay-per-view, the reigning Evolve Tag Team Champions defeated AR Fox & Leon Ruff in a second tag team title defense.
