Damian Priest to face Killian Dain on NXT next week


Two of the triple threat match participants from TakeOver: WarGames are set to face off again on next week's NXT.

Damian Priest vs. Killian Dain has been announced for NXT next Wednesday (December 4). It's the first match to be confirmed for the episode.

Pete Dunne defeated Priest and Dain in their triple threat match at Saturday's TakeOver event. Dunne was on Dain's back and had him in a sleeper hold near the finish, with Dain breaking that up by dropping both of them onto Priest with a senton. Dunne then pinned Priest to get the win.

As a stipulation of winning the triple threat, Dunne advanced to Survivor Series and unsuccessfully challenged for Adam Cole's NXT Championship.

Priest and Dain's interactions in the TakeOver match were recapped on tonight's episode of NXT. To build up Priest vs. Dain for next week, WWE claimed that Priest had injured his ribs at TakeOver.
