Kofi Kingston: People Are Going To Impressed When Pretty Deadly Comes To The Main Roster

Kofi Kingston talks Pretty Deadly and their potential future on the main roster.

Throughout the near decade and a half of the brand's existence, NXT has helped many wrestlers go on to become big stars on the main roster. Current champions such as Roman Reigns, Bianca Belair, Gunther, Austin Theory, and Charlotte Flair, all spent significant time in NXT before going on to either Raw or SmackDown.

Pretty Deadly, consisting of Elton Prince and Kit Wilson, are one of the most popular tag teams that currently reside on the brand. The duo also are in the midst of a feud with The New Day, who defeated them for the NXT Tag Team Champions back at the brand's Deadline event in December.

In a new interview with Under The Ring, Kofi Kingston praised Pretty Deadly for their ability to connect with the crowd.

“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."

In a past interview, Xavier Woods echoed a similar sentiment, noting that it's their job to give knowledge to the next generation of performers. To learn more, click here.
