The NXT Championship will be on the line at Survivor Series.

WWE announced today that Pete Dunne, Damian Priest, and Killian Dain will face off in a triple threat match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames on Saturday. The winner will advance to challenge Adam Cole for the NXT Championship at Survivor Series the next night.

Dunne, Priest, and Dain have been involved in a program on NXT. Dunne and Dain were supposed to have a match against each other last week, but Priest attacked Dain as he was making his entrance. A brawl broke out, with Priest standing tall after hitting a dive on Dunne and Dain.

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Universal Champion The Fiend also have title defenses at Survivor Series. Lesnar will defend his title against Rey Mysterio in a no holds barred match, while Daniel Bryan will challenge for The Fiend's title.

Cole will be in the men's WarGames match at TakeOver. It will be The Undisputed Era (Cole, Roderick Strong, Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish) vs. Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee, Dominik Dijakovic, and a partner.

Cole will face Dijakovic in a ladder match on this Wednesday's NXT to decide which team gets the WarGames advantage.

WWE has also hyped that there will be an "open door" for Raw and SmackDown on Wednesday's NXT. That will include The Revival facing NXT Tag Team Champions O'Reilly & Fish in a non-title match.
