Former WWE Champion Believes Pretty Deadly Will Impress On The Main Roster WWE

A former WWE Champion believes former NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly will impress people on the main roster.

NXT has introduced to WWE fans to many great wrestlers who have become bigger stars on the main roster, such as Bianca Belair, Charlotte Flair, Austin Theory and Roman Reigns.

In 2022, Elton Prince and Kit Wilson of Pretty Deadly made the move from NXT UK to NXT proper in the United States. They have quickly become one of the most popular tag teams that currently resides on the brand.

Speaking with Under The Ring, Kofi Kingston praised Pretty Deadly for their ability to connect with the crowd. He said:

“To be able to go there every week and just watch and observe and give little nuggets of advice, especially with Pretty Deadly.”

“I feel like they’re so incredibly special with the way they’re able to connect with the crowd, even if it’s a way that the crowd is repulsed by them [laughs]. You know?”

“It’s not an easy thing to do. It’s very difficult to go out there and get people emotionally invested in what you do and they got it man. They got it.”

“Hopefully, when the time is right, they come up to the main roster and the WWE universe is going to be pleasantly surprised…the people that are not familiar with their work are going to be very impressed, for sure.”

Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of The New Day will defend the NXT Tag Team Championships against Pretty Deadly and Gallus in a triple threat match on February 4 at NXT Vengeance Day.
