Another Lee/Dijakovic battle added to TakeOver: Portland

For the second straight week, Dominik Dijakovic defeated a fellow NXT hoss. Last week it was Damian Priest. Tonight (Feb. 5), it was Killian Dain.

Dijakovic has been on a quest to resume the rivalry he and Keith Lee put on hold for WarGames. The big Croatian-American thinks he should be the first to challenge his frenemy for the North American title.

After he beat Dain, General Manager William Regal agreed.

The latest clash between these two titans brings the card for Sun., Feb. 16’s TakeOver: Portland to six:

- Tommaso Ciampa vs. Adam Cole (c) for the NXT championship

- Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Bianca Belair for the NXT Women’s title

- Finn Balor vs. Johnny Gargano

- The Broserweights (Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne) vs. Undisputed ERA (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish) (c) for the NXT Tag Team championship

- Keith Lee (c) vs. Dominik Dijakovic for the NXT North American title

- Tegan Nox vs. Dakota Kai in a street fight

Since we’re already over the normal five matches, it looks like NXT will be treating their first Sunday TakeOver like a Raw/SmackDown brand PPV. After tonight, a Jordan Devlin/Angel Garza Cruiserweight title bout, and a Roderick Strong vs/ Velveteen Dream rematch both seem like likely candidates for Portland.
