Killian Dain def. Pete Dunne

Killian Dain def. Pete Dunne

Pete Dunne made the best of being flattened on Killian Dain's back at TakeOver: WarGames, but on this night a similar fate ended in defeat for The BruiserWeight. 

With Damian Priest unable to compete against Dain as scheduled, The Northern Ireland Nightmare elected to call out anyone in the NXT locker room bold enough to face him — and to little surprise, Dunne answered the call. 

The impromptu challenge set the stage for the first one-on-one battle between the two rivals, who have been embroiled since October. Dunne prevailing against Dain and Priest in a Triple Threat Match at WarGames for an NXT Championship opportunity only seemed to motivate The Beast of Belfast to seize one of the biggest victories of his NXT career. 

The BruiserWeight chased Dain up the ropes, trying to lock in a sleeper hold that he was only partially able to apply. It was enough to daze Dain and send him toppling backward, while also crushing Dunne underneath him in the process.

Already landing in position for the pin, Dain needn't even move a muscle from there for the three-count, picking up the win despite his semi-conscious state.
