WWE have added a United Kingdom Title match pitting champion Pete Dunne vs. Johnny Gargano to the NXT TakeOver: WarGames card on November 18.

The match won't be part of the WWE Network broadcast though, meaning the only way fans can see it is by purchasing a ticket to the live event and being there in person.

It's interesting that WWE have decided to make Dunne's next major title defence a dark match. The 'Bruiserweight' made his Raw debut this past Monday, so a lot of fans are talking about him on social media. WWE's plan must be to capitalise on that hype by hoping Dunne will sell any remaining tickets to the NXT TakeOver show.

WWE didn't do things by half measures in Manchester on Monday. Raw GM Kurt Angle was the one to introduce Dunne, and the WWE UK Champion was made to look strong by beating Cruiserweight Champ Enzo Amore.

Although Dunne appeared as a default babyface in his homeland, it's expected he'll revert to the heel role for his match against a popular NXT face like Gargano in Houston.
