Pulled pork: can I let it rest overnight before pulling?

I'm making sous-vide pulled pork today - it'll be in the water bath for about nine hours at 160 degrees. Which -I've just realized- means it'll be done around midnight. Oops :-)

Does anyone know - can I let it rest for a day in the refrigerator, and "pull" it Monday? Or will the connective tissues glue themselves back together and undo all the good work of the water bath?

I ordinarily let pulled pork sit for about a half-hour before pulling it ... never longer than an hour. And I guess I'd rather stay up late than ruin the meat.......
