The New Day made history by beating Pretty Deadly for the NXT Tag Team Championship at NXT Deadline this past Saturday. Next week, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods will have their first tag title defense on the white and gold brand.

Kingston and Woods arrived on NXT this week to address their big win over Elton Prince and Kit Wilson. Woods referenced Kingston’s status as the only singles and tag Triple Crown Champion in WWE history.

Pretty Deadly interrupted the promo and told New Day they wanted a title shot. The champions asked them to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen arrived and did what New Day asked, getting a title shot against the champions next week.

Plus, Apollo Crews will return to NXT next week. Crews hasn’t appeared on the white and gold brand since he lost the NXT Championship match to Bron Breakker at the Deadline premium live event. Check out the card announced so far here.
