Pretty Deadly, the tag team consisting of Sam Stoker and Lewis Howley, has caught the attention of WWE officials, who have constantly pushed the duo in NXT UK, NXT, and even on the main roster. The team has held gold in NXT UK and NXT, and earlier this year, they worked a handful of live events on the main roster, wrestling against then-NXT Tag Team Champions, The New Day.

However, in Tuesday’s episode of WWE NXT, Pretty Deadly lost to Tony D’Angelo and Stacks in a Trunk Match, where they were thrown into the trunk of car. In the closing moments of the episode, Tony and Stacks were shown tossing Pretty Deadly into a lake, implying that they were “swimming with the fishes.”

According to PWInsider Elite, the tag team will be backstage at Friday’s SmackDown, the first night of the WWE Draft, which will continue the following Monday at RAW. The timing of their appearance and the angle on NXT suggest that they may be called up to the main roster.

Pretty Deadly’s success in NXT and NXT UK has been noticed by WWE officials, who are reportedly high on the tag team. With their appearances on the main roster, the duo has shown that they can perform well in high-pressure situations, which may bode well for their future in the company.


If Pretty Deadly is indeed called up to the main roster, it will be interesting to see how they are utilized, given that the WWE tag team division is stacked with talent. However, the duo’s strong performances thus far suggest that they may be up for the challenge and could make a significant impact on the main roster.

Fans will have to stay tuned to see what’s in store for the tag team in the coming weeks and months.

What kind of impact could Pretty Deadly make if they are indeed called up to the main roster, and how might they fit into the already stacked WWE tag team division? Leave a comment.
