The New Day is regarded as one of the greatest tag teams in the history of WWE, and it’s not really hard to see why. They have been part of numerous historical matches and won the tag team titles several times. They also made history at NXT Deadline, and it seems Shawn Michaels wants them to compete at NXT Vengeance Day as well.

The New Day challenged Pretty Deadly for the NXT Tag Team Championships at the Deadline Premium Live Event. Against all odds, The New Day won the tag titles and completely shocked fans.
While speaking during the post-NXT Deadline press conference, Shawn Michaels talked about The New Day’s future in NXT. Michaels made it clear that he will do everything in his power to ensure The New Day compete at NXT Vengeance Day on February 4th.
“We had a call the other day, and I genuinely and sincerely was, we weren’t sure what we were going to do. I’m always pretty honest with you guys. You know, it’s one of those things like I’ll send a couple of texts, and I’ll see what we can do.
“Once again, none of it has been finalized yet, but I have every intention because, as best that I understand it right now, The New Day is still a part of SmackDown, so our titles should definitely be represented. That crossover that we had in the last several months is going to continue. I will say this, sometimes I think we lose the concept of the fact that — I guess I’m always conservative, and I don’t ever want to bother anybody and I don’t push more than I should. But every now and then, heck, all I have to do is ask a question and Hunter [Triple H] says, ‘Yeah, sure.’ Then, we have to talk to talent and just see if it works for everybody.
The thing is, I’m thinking about Vengeance Day, but that isn’t, obviously, finalized, but I absolutely have to think about selling those tickets in Charlotte and finding out what we can do to best help that. At this point right now, I can’t say that I know that New Day is going to be a part of that, but I can promise you I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that they are because that’s something that’s going to be beneficial in making that premium live event in Charlotte something special.”
Saturday’s huge win made Kofi Kingston a record-setting 15-time tag team champion in WWE, eclipsing Booker T’s record of 14 tag team title wins in WCW and WWE. We’ll have to see how The New Day will fare as the NXT Tag Team Champions.
