Just announced on WWE.COM that Pete Dunne vs. Killain Dain vs. Damian Priest in a Triple Threat number one contender's match at NXT WarGames this Saturday with the winner facing Adam Cole at Survivor Series the next night for the NXT Championship. This was definitely out of left field so now we know that basically rules out Adam Cole to be the Captain of Team NXT for the 5-on-5-on-5 Men's Elimination Match this Sunday night unless they have him pull Triple duty which I don't think they will but what are your thoughts on this huge announcement??

Re: BREAKING NEWS Dunne/Dain/Priest in a number one contender's Triple Threat Match on Wednesday

Once Lesnar and Fiend had singles matches, it would have been imbalanced for the NXT champ to have been in the main men's match given the approach they're taking.

Probably going to try to highlight NXT as a 'pure wrestling' brand in contrast to the star power of Lesnar and the gimmicky/their perception of storytelling concept of the Fiend. Kind of makes sense from a branding point of view. Particularly given that from a carte blanche, Balor would have been the most obvious choice.

Would have also been odd to have Cole in the SS match with the rest of the UA not in it.

That tells me that team NXT is going to loose.

Pete is probably the best matchup Cole can have from the three, as well as being the one who has had the most exposure on the main roster (and the babyface to pair against Cole too). Maybe an outside shot of Dain winning but Priest likely has no chance imo

NXT being team NXT should've told you they were going to lose. Raw is winning, obviously. That's the highest concentration of stars, and there will definitely be a complete breakdown between Reigns and Corbin.

Seems kind of odd that the guy they've positioned at the top of this storyline on the NXT side is now not going to be in a brand vs. brand vs. brand match.

I mean I get why you wouldn't want to do Bray vs. Brock vs. Cole, but it still seems like weird move.

Ah well, hope we get Dunne vs. Cole.

As for Team NXT, my hope is: Ciampa, Riddle, Lee, Walter, Dream (if healthy)

Cole vs Dunne is the stuff of nightmares.

Pulling for Dain, as he'll just beat the shit out of this idiot and won't play into the EPIC crap that Cole now lives for.

Dunne's my guy. Survivor Series mkes more sense than having it on Smackdown.
They had a pretty good match before with the UK title match. So if give time I can't see it any different tho it will be at main wwe ppv so who knows. Honestly there are few matches that could be Match of the night. Aj vs strong vs nak or the Viking raiders vs new day vs undisputed era.

I honestly fell like this is a stupid idea!!! I think what they should have done was whoever scores the submission at War Games gets the title shot, so that way you could build tension for Team Champa .

Yeah true cause I was hoping Tommaso Ciampa winning then getting a clear shot at Adam Cole to get Goldie back but now this changes the whole complexion to that now

That tells me that team NXT is going to loose.

Everyone should know that when it comes to Vince McMahon and the booking and that's why majority of the fans watch NXT and thing they're truly the A brand cause they know how to utilize storylines and their Superstars wisely.

I just cant understand how your going to have a Title match on the main card with no build up whatsoever and are expecting people to care. If anything they should have built it up when Champa returned, and the stipulation being if his team wins, he gets the title shot the next night at Survivor Series, but Cole could have turned around and did one better if anyone on your team scores the Submission victory they then challenge me at Survivor Series, to build dissention between the member of Team Champa. Can they all trust each other.

The match my mistake will go down at NXT Takeover WarGames this Saturday night, not tomorrow night but I do see Pete Dunne winning leading to the Cole/Dunne rematch

Facts but I'm pretty sure this wasn't HHH's idea this was definitely Vince McMahon's idea to do something like this cause it makes no sense to have a NXT Championship at Survivor Series with no proper build up or storyline, now if it was Cole/Ciampa then I see a reason of having the match there but you should already know this is a way to get people to watch the PPV this Sunday, when we already know NXT Takeover WarGames III will be very hard to top!
