Pete Dunne was 1/2 of the NXT Tag Team Champions with Matt Riddle when the pandemic hit. Then he was stuck in the UK. He had to forfeit his title, and nobody heard from him since. That absence ended tonight.
Pete Dunne returned during Halloween Havoc where he aligned himself with Pat McAfee and NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. Dunne attacked Kyle O’Reilly, broke his fingers, and then he joined McAfee’s new stable.
It seems that Pat McAfee has a formidable stable behind him now in NXT, and Pete Dunne is a real heavy-hitter to have on board.
