WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels took part in a pre-WWE NXT Deadline media call and addressed several topics, including The New Day (Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston) making a surprise appearance during Tuesday’s episode of WWE NXT where they issued a challenge to Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) for the WWE NXT Tag Team Championships as part of WWE NXT Deadline tomorrow night.

Michaels said that they want it to be for more than just a once-off appearance and that Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston are both open to those conversations. Michaels said that he would like to keep them both in NXT for as long as he can and that Woods has actually wanted to return to the brand for quite some time.

Michaels added that the dialogue for main roster talent to come down and work in NXT has happened in a variety of ways, and that they have done all of them.
