As Finn Balor needs a challenger, matches to determine his number one contender are starting to take shape. Now, a huge main event match has been announced for this week’s episode of NXT TV.
WWE announced on Twitter that Pete Dunne would face Kyle O’Reilly for a shot at the NXT Championship. The winner will face Balor at NXT New Years Evil on January 6, 2021. Here is the announcement and the preview from WWE.com:

“An NXT Title Match against Finn Bálor hangs in the balance this Wednesday night when Kyle O’Reilly faces Pete Dunne one-on-one.
General Manager William Regal made the matchup after O’Reilly and Dunne, along with Damian Priest, confronted Bálor last week and made their NXT Title ambitions known. The winner of O’Reilly vs. Dunne will challenge The Prince at NXT New Year’s Evil on Jan. 6.
Two of the hardest hitters in the game, O’Reilly and Dunne are also familiar foes, most recently competing on opposing sides in this year’s Men’s WarGames Match, which was won by The Undisputed ERA.
Can O’Reilly continue The Undisputed ERA’s success and earn a rematch against Bálor, whom he faced in an instant-classic at NXT TakeOver 31? Or will The BruiserWeight smash his way toward title contention?”
Dunne and O’Reilly recently squared off in a ladder match on NXT TV where Dunne won the WarGames advantage for his team. The two were also the two stars to start the WarGames match at last weekend’s TakeOver event.
