We’re done evolving and we feel no shame, but me, I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

We get a video package of Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams rolling up to a spooky looking house to try and reclaim Carmelo’s title.
Trick wants to hang back and drive getaway but Hayes makes him get out and approach the house. They get scared by all manner of Halloween decorations and we cut to Johnny Gargano and Dexter Lumis hanging out with zombie ref Darryl Sharma. Johnny promises he “Home Alone’d the shit” out of the house.
Hayes and Williams navigate their way to the door before the video cuts away.
Grayson Waller is dressed as a Dracula and he misses his cue at first.
He says LA Knight isn’t here but he’s the backup host and he blathers on until Joe Gacy interrupts him and takes the mic.
Gacy says corrupt minds like Grayson’s are why Halloween isn’t a very inclusive holiday, just an excuse to exploit and sexualize people. (Well listen, Joe, I put a lot of time and effort and pharmaceuticals into making this body as hot as it is and I’m gonna show it off if I wanna, damnit)
Joe Gacy vs. Malik Blade
Blade in hot with a dropkick but Gacy manages to overwhelm him. We get footage of Harland arriving in the building and lumbering into the arena proper...
Joe Gacy wins by pinfall with a lariat.
Post-match, Gacy gives Harland a pep talk and tells him he can trust him.
We get a Kay Lee Ray vignette where she complains about the lack of respect that NXT 2.0 has given her.
Grayson Waller is walking around the NXT Halloween party and gladhanding.
Ikemen Jiro and KUSHIDA are confused by the concept of Halloween, but Waller explains to them that it’s like cosplay and they seem to get it. Cameron Grimes rolls up dressed and an astronaut and scares off some girls that Waller was chatting with.
Diamond Mine are on stage and Malcolm Bivens cuts a promo.
He says for a big show like this, they have a special treat, a Diamond Mine open challenge wherein you can challenge any member of the Mine, after the break.
Back from commercial, Bivens asks who’s gonna step up.
Odyssey Jones is here! Malcolm tells Jones that his big ass isn’t 205 pounds, and after some chatter Roddy decides he’s taking the match!
Odyssey Jones vs. Roderick Strong
Jones in control with his strength early, but Strong is able to put a sleeper hold in and do some damage before Odyssey throws him off! Laying kicks in, cover for one, jockeying for position and Roddy gets a calf slicer locked on! Jones manages to kick him away, sidestep a knee, lands a lariat and a scoop and a slam!

Back from commercial, Raquel has turned the tide and wallops her with the kendo stick, Rose sets her in an office chair and traps her with the stick before kicking her down! Wailing on her with it, she goes under the ring for plunder but turns around to see Gonzalez wearing a hockey mask and brandishing a fire extinguisher!
Spraying Mandy with the CO2, she awkwardly press slams her back into the ring and gives chase, big lariat, Snake Eyes into the steel chair! Setting Rose up top, knocking her down, taking action to the floor again and she sets the steel steps up on the apron!

Back from commmercial, we see Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams descend into Johnny Gargano’s haunted house.
They run into a creepy old lady and some kind of pumpkin monster and get away only to run into another creepy lady before entering a wax museum segment of the house. They get spooked by a number of seeming Draculas before Andre Chase shows up, for some reason.
He brought his students here on a field trip and now he can’t find them, and Hayes and Williams enlist him to help them navigate their way through the house. Lumis and Gargano get up from their post and walk off. Carmelo and Trick get separated for a minute end up in a room with some kind of goblin before finally finding the NXT North American Championship.
Hayes is quick to reach for it and Williams reminds him that it’s never this easy in movies, but Carmelo scoffs and yanks the title from its perch. Dramatic music plays and Gargano and Lumis appear behind them and attack! Trick and Melo get away but run into a bunch of zombies and drop the belt.
Johnny scares them and they run off with the title.
Grayson Waller is in the ring to host the show when LA Knight finally shows up.
Waller says it’s not his fault he had car problems and LA asks him who told him he had car trouble. Grayson sputters something about Chucky and—
Enter Solo Sikoa.
He gets in the ring and belly-to-belly suplexes Waller out of it!
We see Bron Breakker working out backstage. He’s momentarily startled by Chucky hanging out but rolls with it and keeps his workout going.
