NXT Halloween Havoc 2021 | Preview

On Tuesday, October 26th, WWE presents NXT Halloween Havoc 2021. As it stands, four matches have been scheduled to be taking place in this Halloween-themed NXT show. However, unlike previous Halloween Havoc’s, this show is not a pay-per-view show but a weekly episode of the program. That said, the show title matches are slated to take place time and time again during this event. Of the matches are scheduled, two have unique stipulations on top of being championships on the line. Here is the NXT Halloween Havoc 2021 preview.

LA Knight to Host NXT Halloween Havoc 2021

If he isn’t booked to compete in this event, it only makes sense for one of the best talkers on the brand to host the event. LA Knight is here, and he will likely engage in antics that may cause many to either chuckle or groan. Why groan? Knight isn’t the only person that will be hosting the event. It seems Knight will have a co-host. That co-host is non-other than the star of the show Child’s Play, Chucky.

Unfortunately, the previous statement wasn’t a typo or something fabricated but a legitimate indication of what will actually take place. Will Knight face some supernatural antics because of the doll, or will he attempt to put the character in its place? It may very well be a combination of the two throughout the night…for Knight.

Spin the Wheel Make The Deal
MSK (c) vs. Imperium

It’s been a rather unique series of weeks for the NXT Tag Team Champions. What has been uncharacteristic is that those in attendance have booed the champions. However, the duo are still exciting to watch in the ring, providing a unique and innovative offense that provides spectators a reason to stand up and show their appreciation for them. For Imperium, the former NXT UK Tag Team Champions knows precisely what it takes to be the champions and win the big match.

Will that be precisely what these challengers will need to capture the NXT Tag Team Championship? The missing piece of this match is, in fact, the match stipulation. Spin the Wheel Make The Deal has several different options. So which deal will the champions be faced to ‘deal’ with on this night?

Zoey Stark & Io Shirai (c) vs. Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne vs. Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta

This match has all the makings of something special for all the participants. While fans have yet to see Pirotta very much on NXT TV, the former Steph De Lander has been building a name for herself in her native Australia. However, Pirotta and Hartwell are likely to be the duo fans will be the most surprised by in this match. Pirotta has competed for several promotions such as SHIMMER, Ring of Honor & Melbourne City Wrestling.

For Hartwell, she was known for her time in NXT alongside Candice LaRae, so this match lends itself to a new beginning for her as well. In Dolin and Jayne, the two Toxic Attraction members are un the cusp of along with Mandy Rose of holding all the gold in the women’s division. Have Shirai and Stark bitten off more than they can chew here?

In the second of two Spin the wheel make the deal contests, it feels as though whatever the match choice will be, it is the champion that will face the disadvantage. So are we to see the likes of Gigi Dolin and Jacey Jayne both play a part in this match or its outcome? It could very well be the case.

For Gonzalez, she has actively defended her title against any and all challengers leading into this match. Whereas in the past, she had the likes of Dakota Kai watching her back, it won’t be the case on this night. This could be the night we see a new NXT Women’s Champion crowned, and her name is Mandy Rose.

Tommaso Ciampa (c) vs. Bron Breakker

It has been weeks in the making, and the time has finally come. Breakker burst on the scene as an unknown with no previous wrestling experience on the independent circuit. It is no secret who Breakker’s father and uncle are despite not having it mentioned each time he steps in the ring. He certainly has a presence. Whether it’s the presence of a dog-faced gremlin or someone that hollers if we hear them, he has it regardless.

With attire that is not unlike his father’s and uncles earlier in their career, Bron Breakker looks to take all the experience that he has grown up around and apply it in this match. For Ciampa, he has worked to valiantly defend his title and prove that in regaining ‘goldy’ that he will not let it go so easily.

What To Expect

  • Chucky and LA Knight are likely to have a confrontation
  • Diamond Mine to address not being booked for the show
  • Carmelo Hayes is likely to be in attendance and address not defending the title.
