When Halloween and professional wrestling collide — havoc ensues. For the second consecutive year, WWE has brought back Halloween Havoc as a special for their NXT brand. The show is a Halloween-themed wrestling event that features wrestlers from WWE’s developmental show.
Originally, Halloween Havoc was an annual October pay-per-view event produced by former WWE rival, World Championship Wrestling from 1989 to 2000. After WCW went out of business and was bought by WWE, the Spooky Season event was retired until it made its return last year for the first time in 2 decades. This year’s event will be hosted by NXT Superstar LA Knight and USA’s and SyFy’s favorite serial-killing doll, Chucky.
After losing to rival promotion All Elite Wrestling in the ‘Wednesday Night Wars,’ Halloween Havoc will be the first special episode of NXT since its NXT 2.0 reboot. The Halloween-themed special will be a huge opportunity for new faces like Bron Breakker (the nephew of Scott Steiner/son of Rick Steiner) to make a name for himself and get WWE’s golden brand back on track. So far, there have been four title matches announced for Halloween Havoc. Both tag titles will be on the line, plus, the NXT Men’s and Women’s championships will be defended.
The special event will feature the unveiling of a mystery person, whose vignettes have aired earlier this month. Solo Sikoa, the brother of WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos, will be making his NXT debut as well. NXT’s premier talk show segment, Lashing Out with Lash Legend, will have its own Halloween Havoc Special.
Below are the listed matches and events scheduled for Tuesday night.
- NXT Championship Match
