Pretty Deadly Reveal Important Advice From Shawn Michaels – Exclusive

The flamboyant former WWE NXT UK tag team known as Pretty Deadly has quickly made headway since being promoted to WWE’s main roster. As members of the Smackdown brand, Elton Prince and Kit Wilson have already earned themselves a shot at the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships, facing Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn on the Smackdown before Money In The Bank in London. Despite their connection with the UK market, the duo were booed out of the building, and those boos only intensified after they lost.

Unfortunately, not long after that loss, Prince was injured during a Smackdown match against The Brawling Brutes. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that he suffered a shoulder injury that should keep him out of action “for months,” but despite that, it appears the two will maintain an on-air presence.

Prior to that injury, I had some time to speak with Prince and Wilson as part of the WWE Money In The Bank media junket. During our conversation, I asked them what it was like coming up through the WWE NXT system and being trained by WWE Hall of Famers Shawn Michaels and Triple H.

“You got two of the best wrestlers in the world, and they are just our bosses, and they’re helping us week by week,” Prince began. “It’s still kind of like a wild thing to get your head around, but Shawn Michaels told us a couple of years ago to just always be ourselves and not forget who we are, and that so long as we’re putting that product across, that we’ll always be alright. I think that’s been a huge help for us because, you know? When we’re just having fun out there, it’s just me and Kit just being friends, basically, just messing around like we would outside, and it shows, right?”

“When we get along in our house, that’s what we bring to the ring, and it’s so successful, and that is something that the big, top dogs told us, and I think it’s coming into fruition,” Wilson added.

My entire conversation with Pretty Deadly can be found in video form on Premier Streaming Network and in audio form on the Haus of Wrestling podcast feed.
