SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
The New Day will be heading to NXT Deadline and will face Pretty Deadly in a match for the NXT Tag Team Championships.
This week on NXT, Pretty Deadly held a special “Night Before Christmas” segment in the ring. During the segment, the duo declared themselves the greatest NXT tag team of all-time and bragged about beating every team there was to beat on the NXT roster. The New Day made a surprise appearance on the show and confronted Pretty Deadly before challenging them to a match. Both teams got a little physical in the ring and the New Day stood tall. Later in the show, the match was made official for NXT Deadline.
The New Day were once the longest reigning tag team champions in the history of WWE. Earlier in November, The Usos broke their record. This past Friday on Smackdown, Kofi Kingston lost to the WWE Intercontinental Champion, Gunther, in a singles match.
