New Day to challenge for NXT Tag Team titles at Deadline


A match between The New Day and Pretty Deadly has been added to NXT Deadline.

Saturday’s Deadline will now have a NXT Tag Team title match between the two teams. The New Day appeared on Tuesday’s NXT, challenging Pretty Deadly to a title match.

In addition, a match between Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre has been made.

Pretty Deadly were in the ring Tuesday reading their version of A Christmas Story. Once they were done reading their poem, The New Day (Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston) came out and challenged them to a match. The two teams eventually got into a brawl, with The New Day gaining the upper hand after putting Christmas presents on top of Pretty Deadly’s heads and superkicking them off the apron and to the floor.

Dawn defeated Thea Hail on Tuesday’s show. After the match, Fyre emerged and attacked Dawn, retribution for what happened weeks ago on NXT when Dawn made her debut by attacking Fyre and costing her the NXT Women’s Championship.

It was also announced during the show that the pre-show kickoff event will be hosted by McKenzie Mitchell, Sam Roberts, and our own Denise Salcedo.

Here is the updated lineup for Saturday’s NXT Deadline:

  • NXT Championship: Bron Breakker (c) vs. Apollo Crews
  • Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge match: Carmelo Hayes vs. JD McDonagh vs. Grayson Waller vs. Joe Gacy vs. Axiom
  • Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge match: Zoey Stark vs. Cora Jade vs. Kiana James vs. Roxanne Perez vs. Indi Hartwell
  • NXT Tag Team titles: Pretty Deadly vs. The New Day
  • Alba Fyre vs. Isla Dawn
