• Kofi Kingston Could Make History This Saturday At NXT Deadline
Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods are coming for the NXT Tag Team Championship.
On last night’s episode of WWE NXT, NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly presented “A Real Christmas Story”.
They said that they have defeated every Tag Team and won’t ever lose their NXT Tag Team Titles and 2023 will be an even better year for them.
The New Day then showed up and issued a challenge for the NXT Tag Team Titles at NXT Deadline. Pretty Deadly tried to attack them, but New Day saw it coming and took them out.
While The New Day are 11-time Tag Team Champions in WWE, Kofi Kingston is actually a 14-time Tag Team Champion as he has held the Tag Titles with other partners as well.
Edge & Kofi are tied for the record of most Tag Team Title reigns in WWF/E history at 14 (not including any other companies, otherwise Booker T & Dudley Boyz will come into play as well).
If The New Day win this Saturday night at Deadline, then Kingston will overtake Edge with a total of 15 Tag Team Title reigns in the company (despite the NXT Tag Team Championship being considered a developmental title).

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 7, 1989) – WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1989, we lost Old School WWF Legend Haystacks Calhoun (Real name: William Dee Calhoun) at the age of 55, after he lost his left leg because of his diabetes 3 years earlier.
At the peak of his professional wrestling career, Calhoun weighted 640 lbs, which means that he is in the Top 10 list of the heaviest pro-wrestlers of all time.
In 2017, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.
