#5 Pete Dunne
Pete Dunne squared off against Damien Priest and Killian Dain for an opportunity to challenge Adam Cole for his NXT Championship at Survivor Series. This triple-threat match was brutal from start to finish. We saw all the three competitors going at each other’s throats as soon as the bell rang.
The history shared between Dunne, Priest and Dain also accounted for an incredible narration inside the squared circle. The intensity of this bout kept the crown on its feet throughout its duration. There was not a single dull spot in the entire match and as a result, Dunne’s victory appeared sweeter.
During the match, Dain was adamant to punish Dunne for breaking his fingers. Priest, on the other, was desperate to let both his opponents know that he wants to settle scores. In the end, Dain took down Priest with Running Senton and Dunne used to opportunity to attack the latter. He then won the match via pinfall amidst thunderous applause.
