Dunne vs. Priest rematch announced for next week's NXT


After a low blow led to the finish of their first match against each other, Pete Dunne and Damian Priest are set to face off again.

WWE has announced Dunne vs. Priest for next Wednesday's episode of NXT. Priest defeated Dunne in their match two weeks ago, with Priest kicking Dunne low and then hitting The Reckoning (Roll of the Dice) to get the win.

The first Dunne vs. Priest match was set up by Priest attacking Dunne on the October 2 episode of NXT.

Before Priest and Dunne's match two weeks ago, there was a confrontation between Killian Dain and Dunne as Dain was leaving after defeating Boa. Dunne snapped Dain's fingers with the finger-break spot.

Cathy Kelley interviewed Dunne last week as he was arriving to Full Sail with Tyler Bate. Dunne said Priest has a receipt coming -- and Dunne also said he doesn't care about Dain. A promo from Dain aired later in the show, with Dain promising that he was going to break Dunne.

There was an angle on tonight's NXT where Dain distracted Bate and caused him to lose to Cameron Grimes. Dain attacked Bate after and sent a message to Dunne, telling Bate to tell Dunne that he has unfinished business with Dain.
