I got what I came for afterlives ago, but the fire kept me below. You get what you pay for. trade it all for gold. We run back into the cold, but me, I’ve got to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with Mandy Rose making her entrance as NXT Women’s Champion.
She gets on the mic and talks about how she did the unthinkable and defeated the unthinkable to become champion, and she congratulates Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne for winning the tag titles. She says she knows we have two thoughts— damn she’s hot, and where are her ladies?
Well, they’re beating Zoey Stark up in the locker room, as it turns out.
Enter Io Shirai.
She says she doesn’t like Zoey, but she likes Mandy even less, so she wants to fight her, right here and right now!
Mandy tells her to hold on and she’s forgetting that she’s in her world now and Rose isn’t scared of her and she’ll go right here, right now, and cheap shot her with a sucker punch to the back of the head! She beats Shirai down and throws her out to the floor and smashes her face into the announce table!
She drags Io back in the ring and gets back on the mic, saying this is NXT 2.0 and Shirai will never look like her, which just eats her a beatdown from the former NXT Women’s Champion. Snap German suplex, corner knees, double jump for the moonsault but Jayne and Dolin return from the locker room and attack her!
Shirai fends Gigi off and starts choking Jacy but Mandy returns to the ring and saves her girls! Kayden Carter and Kacy Catanzaro run in to even the odds for the babyface side!
We get a Halloween Havoc recap video package.
Commentary hypes up tonight’s card.
We see Toxic Attraction walking backstage when they run into Dakota Kai, who prickles and says she didn’t do it to help them, she did it for revenge on Raquel Gonzalez.
Dakota makes her entrance to send us to break.

We get a hype reel of social media reactions to Von Wagner and go to break.
Back from commercial, MSK get a vignette where they talk about the mysterious man behind the curtain for MSK, but we don’t get to hear the actual story because a bus rolls up.
Turns out that was their bus and they missed it, so they’re gonna walk.
Xyon Quinn makes his entrance and Robert Stone is in the ring.
Stone gets on the mic and says he gets it, he’s jealous of Robert Stone, but everybody is jealous of him, because he can do anything, so he’s gonna outsing him and then he’s gonna stomp him wearing a romper, 1-2-3.
Robert dances awkwardly and challenges Xyon to match him, but Quinn says he only came out here to kick his ass. Stone calls him chicken for not dancing and Xyon relents and lipsyncs to Shawn Michaels’ theme until Stone punches him. The music stops, Quinn with a big slam, a biel across the ring, fireman’s carry... CALIFORNIA ROLL! JACKHAMMER... I GUESS THIS WAS A MATCH BECAUSE WE GET A PINFALL!

Back from commercial, we get more Duke’s Poker Room business, and Hudson is angry that Grimes is winning.
Andre Chase makes his entrance and gets on the mic.
He says he’s not the kind of man that responds to baseless rumors, but he just got told people on social media are calling him a coward because of the haunted house stuff last week, but the only thing to fear around here is Andre Chase, and if anybody in the back wants a PhD in getting their ass kicked, come on down!

She talks about how legendary Halloween Havoc was and rates some of the costumes at the party before introducing her guest, Tony D’Angelo.
He brings out Mark, the producer, who is very alive but also his arm is in a sling and he seems abused. Tony coaches him through the interview and tells him to take a walk. He says he’s here to make as much money as he can and slap some dudes around, and calls out Dexter Lumis, Johnny Gargano, Pete Dunne, and Tommaso Ciampa.

Tommaso Ciampa makes his entrance and starts talking about Halloween Havoc.
He says Bron Breakker earned his respect last week, and with the title comes great responsibility and a target on his back.
Enter Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams.
Hayes says it’s not about Ciampa anymore, and there’s a new school on the rise and he’s the leader of it. He wants to say, with no disrespect, that as long as he’s North American Champion, Tom takes a back seat to him, because he’s the real champion of NXT.
Ciampa says that Carmelo doesn’t believe a word he’s saying, but if he’s feeling froggy... jump. Trick says nobody’s here for Ciampa, and Tom drops him for his trouble! The two champions face off.
Ciampa is slow leaving and Johnny Gargano makes his entrance and they have a little moment to send us to break.
