Two title matches have been added to the card for NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day.

WWE has confirmed that NXT Champion Finn Balor will defend his title against Pete Dunne at TakeOver: Vengeance Day on Sunday, February 14. Kushida challenging for Johnny Gargano's NXT North American Championship has also been made official for the show.

Balor and Dunne took part in a segment on NXT tonight that was interrupted by men's Royal Rumble winner Edge. Edge spoke about how watching NXT helped him find the passion to get his career back after nine years. Edge said he used that passion to win the Royal Rumble -- and that allows hin to challenge any champion in the company. He called Balor and Dunne two of the best and said he'd be watching their match at TakeOver.

Edge said that if he hasn't decided which title he'll be challenging for at WrestleMania 37 by TakeOver: Vengeance Day -- Balor vs. Dunne may cause him to make his choice. Karrion Kross later confronted Edge as he was leaving the building and warned Edge that it'll be Kross he's facing after Kross takes the NXT Championship from Balor or Dunne.

Gargano was informed during an interview on NXT tonight that he'll be defending his North American Championship against Kushida at TakeOver: Vengeance Day. Gargano didn't believe the news and went to go question NXT general manager William Regal about it, but Kushida was in Regal's office when Gargano got there. Gargano attacked Kushida, but Kushida got the better of their brawl before it was broken up.

Here's the updated card for TakeOver: Vengeance Day:

  • NXT Champion Finn Balor defends against Pete Dunne
  • NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai defends against Toni Storm and Mercedes Martinez in a triple threat match
  • NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano defends against Kushida
