During an in-ring promo segment, Pat McAfee explained that he was the person who paid off Ridge Holland at the previous TakeOver event so he could take out Adam Cole.
Kyle O’Reilly ran out to the ring and Pete Dunne ran out to even the odds but it was a swerve and he turned on O’Reilly and he has joined Danny Burch, Oney Lorcan and Pat McAfee.
Holland’s injury forced WWE to make changes to this storyline so it’s possible that Dunne is a replacement for Holland in this storyline.
WHY PETE WHY?!?
