It would be new for them. With such a deep roster, WWE is able to split their wrestlers into several groups, with the developmental program getting its own collection of stars. On occasion you will see someone go from one of the two main rosters down to NXT, either for some polishing up or as a surprise. The latter was the case this week, and it might lead to something big.

This week’s NXT featured an in-ring segment with NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly. The team said that no one could beat them, but were interrupted by New Day. After some insults, New Day challenged Pretty Deadly to an NXT Tag Team Title match at Deadline this weekend. The match was officially announced later in the night. While Xavier Woods is a former NXT star, Kingston has only wrestled as a guest before.

They have some history. Check out Kingston, Woods and Pretty Deadly’s time in NXT:

Opinion: This is the kind of match that makes Deadline a bit more interesting, even if it seems unlikely that New Day will be winning the titles. Pretty Deadly is starting to find themselves as champions and a successful title defense over New Day would help them quite a bit. If nothing else, it is nice to have a team as over as New Day, who will not be hurt by such a loss.

What do you think of the match? Who leaves with the titles? Let us know in the comments below.
