The New Day duo of Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods have their sights set on more gold after they revealed they will be competing at NXT Deadline.

On the 6th of December edition of NXT, Elton Prince and Kit Wilson of Pretty Deadly told their own version of the Christmas story, lamenting their lack of challengers for the NXT Tag Team Championship and declaring that 2023 will surely be their year.

That brought out Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of The New Day to issue their own challenge to the pair for the title at the upcoming Deadline premium live event. The match was made official meaning The New Day will have the chance to become only the second team to capture the NXT, Raw, and SmackDown Tag Team Championships after FTR.
