Raw version of The New Day? They seem to be around just for cheap laughs.

Why are they taking up air time when they aren't involved in a fued and aren't official Raw roster members?

They just turned up randomly last week and this week it was never explained why they were there or were around again this week.

Theres obviously a plan for them.

They are probably learning from the lack of reaction the War Raiders and the likes have had - when alot of the audience dont watch NXT they dont get exposed to these talents and therefore have no clue how to react

Phasing them in like this may be helpful in that respect - other than that i have no clue why they are randomly on TV

They should at least have someone confront them and ask them why they are at shows to not wrestle.

I suppose it's building up a report with the main roster fans before putting them in front of the live Raw crowd.

There is plenty of work to be done though as they aren't getting much crowd involvement from their segments so far.

Their segment was pretty entertaining and they are doing a good job of building up future shows etc but to me their promo style is very very similar to that of The Usos when they were running the show on Smackdown.

Usos v SP would be a great first feud if they were to go down that route - I cant see them staying as backstage personnel for very long.

Awful segment. So they lose a tag team title shot against a team they could prepare for knowing their opponents couldn't for them as it was a open challenge.

So instead of caring about the defeat and coming up short at winning a title they weirdly decide to put on some suits, pretend they are reading and tell lame jokes to canned edited in laughter.

It's hard to take them seriously when doing lame shit like this. I reckon a lot of fans still wouldn't be able to name both guys.

So they took the Tag Team Titles from Seth Rollins & Buddy Murphy. It was kind of a giveaway ending as most every time it's someone's "last shot" at a title they win it. It reminded me of The Legion Of Doom's return in 1997 and after questioning themselves they said if they can't win the belts from the Godwins in a match on Raw they'll disband as a team. Of course they won. 

To me this team is alright in the ring but better at entertaining segs in the back as we've seen in the past year. Plus I never want to hot potato belts, it was only recently Rollins & Murphy won them. Thus I would have preferred to to keep the belts on Rollins & Murphy. But with the Street Profits being former NXT Tag Team Champs and remained a good functioning tag team once they moved to the main roster it was almost inevitable they'd get the belts.   

I still want Bianca Belair to appear with them more.

I still cannot take to them and don't see them being given a title run changing my feelings.

They are too loud and annoying and I would prefer them to tone down their personality a bit.

I do think one day they will make far better heels even though I aren't sure if they have ever done that before.

I love the profits ...

They were entertaining and super over on NXT and theve been gradually introduced to the WWE universe over the past months by having the backstage roles and now in-ring work taking stage.

They will be entertaining champs if given enough time and although it may not matter to some, they are a proper tag team and not two guys thrown together because theres nothing else for them to do

This is an excellent point and I will give the Street Profits credit for that. There are and have been waaaaaay too many "thrown together" tag teams over the years, teams who win the title, have a reign of however long, lose them, and hardly ever team again. Heck, Buddy Murphy and Seth recently started to team before they won the belts. Ditto with Ziggler and Roode. And that's just the ones in the past couple months. 

Being a real actual regular tag team with chemistry and cohesion means something. I fully agree.
