Pete Dunne Returns To WWE NXT, Turns Heel

A faction big enough for WarGames...

Pat McAfee returned to NXT last week and formed a faction with Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch after helping them capture the NXT Tag Team Championship. The former NFL punter later revealed this was part of his long-running plot to bring down The Undisputed ERA. He originally hired Ridge Holland to take out Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver: 31, but turned to The Brit-Am Brawlers after the former rugby league player got injured. 

McAfee added a fourth member to his faction at Halloween Havoc. The reveal came after Kyle O'Reilly interrupted the former Indianapolis Colt's promo and came to the ring with the returning Pete Dunne. O'Reilly and The Bruiserweight then stood in the centre of the ring, steel chairs in hand, but Dunne suddenly attacked the former ROH World Champion from behind, turning heel in the process. 

Lorcan, Burch and Dunne proceeded to beat down a helpless O'Reilly and McAfee declared his faction are the new kings of NXT, and "that's undisputed." 

The next NXT TakeOver is reportedly scheduled to take place on December 6 and McAfee's new faction also just happens to have four members. William Regal could be getting ready to shout, "WarGames!" very soon.
