Pete Dunne made his first appearance on NXT TV since losing to Tony D’Angelo in a ‘Crowbar on a Pole’ match. He hit D’Angelo over the hand with a Cricket bat. Dunne has had several dark matches prior to Raw and SmackDown since that loss to D’Angelo.
At New Year’s Evil, Carmelo Hayes unified the North American and Cruiserweight Titles. Vengeance Day is going to be Grimes’ first shot at the North American Title since TakeOver XXX in 2020.
