In the night just passed, WWE wanted to stage its latest special show dedicated to NXT, or the episode called Halloween Havoc, which then takes the name of an old PPV of the deceased WCW, once in open war with the WWF. Among the many contests foreseen in the event card, there were also several matches valid for the category titles of the yellow show, which saw the challengers come out as winners and therefore a lot of new champions were crowned this very night.
The first to lose their belts were the MSK, engaged in a Lumberjack match against the two members of the Imperium who remained alongside WALTER. In the end, it was the two European WWE athletes who emerged as the winners of the match, who won the match decided by the company's "bad luck" wheel and became NXT duo champions again.
MSK made a great entrance
MSK made a great entrance at Halloween Havoc before their NXT Tag Team Championships defense. Imperium entered with their iconic theme before the match got underway. The two teams competed in a Lumber-Jack O'Lantern Match.
To give a big boost to the female future of NXT, the Toxic Attraction and Mandy Rose have also thought about it, with all three athletes who have won their respective matches and have thus become, respectively, pair champions of NXT and world champion in singles of the colorful roster of the Stamford-based company.
The Toxic Attraction were engaged in a Starway To Hell Ladder match, decided by the Spin The Wheel Make the Deal wheel, also brought back to life by WCW, against the other teams formed by Persia Pirotta & Indi Hartwell and Io Shirai & Zoey Stark.
After a very intense match, Gigi Dolin was able to climb the ladder and tear the belts of NXT tag team champions, waiting for the titled match of her friend and leader Mandy Rose. To triumph then was the moment of Mandy Rose, who was scheduled in a No DQ match titled against the champion Raquel Gonzalez.
After a brutal match without disqualification, a hooded athlete stepped in to attack the champion, allowing Mandy Rose to win her first-ever WWE ring title, with the hoodie turning out to be Dakota Kai, now en route collision with Gonzalez for some time.
Aichner took Carter out with a brainbuster before an Imperium Bomb ended Lee’s defense in the ring. Imperium picked up the win and took home the NXT Tag Team Championships for the second time.
