NXT title match official for WWE Survivor Series


Adam Cole has his challenger for Survivor Series.

It will be Cole vs. Pete Dunne for the NXT Championship on Sunday night. Dunne was set up as Cole's challenger by defeating Damian Priest and Killian Dain in a number one contender's triple threat match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames.

The finish of the triple threat match was Dunne pinning Priest. Dunne was on Dain's back and had him in a sleeper hold prior to that. Dain broke that up by dropping both of them onto Priest, but Dunne pinned Priest to get the win.

The WWE and Universal titles will also be on the line tomorrow. Brock Lesnar will defend his WWE Championship against Rey Mysterio in a no holds barred match, while Daniel Bryan will challenge for "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt's Universal Championship.
