Originally published at WWE NXT notes: Lee vs. Dragunov for title match at No Mercy, Breakker takes out Von Wagner

It is official that on 9/12, Wes Lee and Ilja Dragunov will go one-on-one to determine who challenges Carmelo Hayes for the NXT Championship at the No Mercy Premium Live Event on September 30th. 

Bron Breakker and Von Wagner’s feud continued on tonight’s program as they headlined the show. Breakker low blowed Wagner in their No DQ bout and it secured him the victory. He continued to attack Von post-match and the closing angle saw Breakker place Wagner’s head on the base of the ring steps and he used the top piece to smash against Wagner’s head. The camera went to black before Breakker connected.
