It’s Geno here to guide you through the evening. We’re a bit short staffed tonight, so you’ll have to bear with me. You won’t be getting a move-by-move blog here, but you will be getting a short breakdown of what goes down in each match.

Let’s be real, if you’re in here, you’re looking for the finish, aren’t you? Well, I’m gonna give it to ya!

Here we go!

During the pre-show, Apollo Crews and Grayson Waller came together with hosts Shotzi & Quincy Elliott to spin the wheel to see what match type they will have later on. Waller didn’t want it to be land on Ring of Fire but was disappointed anyway when it settled on a Casket match. Crews, for his part, was ecstatic.

“I hope you’re ready to hold your breath,” he said.

We were shown a video of Alba Fyre trying to lure Mandy Rose to a haunted trail, and the leader of Toxic Attraction agreeing to it, much to the chagrin of Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne. Rose’s plan was to go there with the entire crew — Sonya Deville wasn’t around, for what it’s worth — and beat Fyre down before dragging her to the ring and finishing things off there.

We’ll see if that’s how it goes down later tonight.

The real deal show starts now.

The open features yet more of Chucky the doll running down the card and getting us good and primed for what’s to come over the next few hours.

“Enjoy the carnage.”

Indeed, Chucky.

That leads us right into Elliott and Shotzi welcoming us to the “scariest night of the year.” Shotzi is dressed like the Joker but still doing her howl gimmick. Amusing.

We’re starting with what could be the craziest bout of the entire night.

North American Championship Ladder Match: Wes Lee vs. Carmelo Hayes vs. Nathan Frazer vs. Von Wagner vs. Oro Mensah

How it went down: It was a ladder match, with five energetic guys eager to show out to make it impossible to follow them. With that number of wrestlers, it was basically non-stop action with a lot of creative spots mixed in, and everyone getting a chance to shine. Thankfully, Peacock didn’t require bleeping out the “holy shit” chants, and we definitely got those. Later in the match, Robert Stone and Trick Williams both tried to go up the ladder and a shoe was used to knock them both down. Big pop for that. Von Wagner nearly hit some fans in the face setting up a ladder that he was later put through by a flying Frazer. Not long after, he threw Lee out of the ring all the way to the announcer’s table. It looked SO FAR away. Madness. He had the save on the closest call not too long after, though. It wasn’t long after that he managed to put Hayes down with double knees and pull himself up the ladder to complete his comeback story and become a singles champion for the first time.

Druids were shown bringing out the Casket for the next match.

But before that, we’re shown Toxic Attraction pulling up to the haunted trail Alba Fyre asked Mandy Rose to show up to this evening. Jacy Jayne wasn’t feeling it at all but Gigi Dolin had completely changed her mind and was ready to hop out and have some fun.

Jacy was grabbed on the arm by a fake zombie and she punched him in the face in response.

They walked by a creepy kid with an axe and no sold him to get to the haunted house. A door swung open and Fyre could be heard creepily shouting “Mandy, I’m waiting.”

They went inside.

Mandy suggested they split up, and Jacy rightfully chided her for not watching enough horror flicks. Rose demanded they do it anyway, because she wanted to hasten the process. Jayne was instantly scared by something and ran off from whence she came. She ended up in a room full of skeletons. Something moved behind her, but when she turned, Alba showed up just behind her and dragged her away.

One down.

Gigi sat down at a table with Chucky and a few other haunting folks when Alba showed up and slammed her head against the table. A brawl ensued and Jacy appeared to be getting the better of it initially but she ended up in a haunted freezer.

Two down.

Rose low blowed the grim reaper and demanded he put some respect on her name. I did indeed just type that out.

She was scared by a piano note. Then another. When she looked to the piano, no one was there playing it. When she turned back around, her challenger was facing her down. Another fight broke out and all the haunted creatures were pitching in to help Fyre.

By the end of it, all the bad gals were left in a heap and Alba was driving off, presumably to the arena to actually have the match they have planned tonight.

When we cut back to ringside, Vic Joseph tells us “the druids have finally gotten the casket into place.” I guess it took them all that time. Amazing.

Casket Match: Apollo Crews vs. Grayson Waller

How it went down: They had a fairly standard match, though it was a physical one. Waller kept attacking the eye, as has been a major part of the story going in. At one point, Waller knocked Crews off the top rope and through the top of the casket. That put Crews inside the casket but left Waller unable to close the lid. He expected to be announced the winner but wasn’t. Then, the lights went out and when they came up, Crews was no longer in the casket, instead up by the entrance where the druids were shown apparently bringing in another casket. This casket was WAY nicer. Waller teased a Tombstone with Crews hitting the counter. It wasn’t long after that he hit a chokeslam from the apron into the casket, slamming the lid down right after.

Apollo Crews def. Grayson Waller

We get a Chase U class session where Andre calls his students the drizzling shits because they couldn’t name where the location of the 1995 Halloween Havoc show was.

But it’s a joyous occasion this evening because Duke Hudson is a new student. Duke is excited to be here.

He had one more question — who did The Outsiders defeat to win the world tag team championships for the first time at Halloween Havoc 1996? Of course it was Hudson who had the right answer after Bodhi Hayward failed multiple times. It was Harlem Heat, not the Nasty Boys or the Steiner Brothers.

Bodhi met with Andre after class was dismissed and said he doesn’t trust Duke. Chase agreed but said Bodhi needs to be the best student he can be anyway.

We were shown Fyre driving to the arena again and it turns out she had Rose in the backseat with her. So they’re both headed in!

Cut to a backstage interview with Pretty Deadly, who were talking about how they look along with wanting to keep their titles. The women’s tag champs, Carter & Chance, showed up and made mention of Pretty Deadly being too concerned with how they look. Some more words were exchanged and they settled on seeing who leaves the show next Tuesday night still holding gold.

Time for a grudge match!

Weapons Wild: Cora Jade vs. Roxanne Perez

How it went down: For being a Weapons Wild match they didn’t spend as much time on weapons as you might think. The story of the match was largely Perez unleashing her angry side in service of getting back at her former best friend and Jade fighting her off. They built to going up to a high platform and Cora moving the wall away to make like she was going to send Perez down through a table below. Perez got control and went to throw a punch but hesitated. Then they got tangled up and both fell. It wasn’t really clear who initiated it. Back in the ring, Jade yelled “you were never my friend” before Perez countered a DDT into a back body drop and sent her crashing onto some chairs. Then she responded “you were always my best friend” and hit Pop Rox onto those same chairs. That got the pin.

Roxanne Perez def. Cora Jade

They announced NXT Deadline for Dec. 10, the final show of the year for the brand.

Shotzi made her way out, this time dressed up as Beetlejuice. She introduced her co-host, the Superdiva, dressed as a banana. Shotzi said she loved the costume and when Elliott was responding, Lash Legend interrupted. She was pissed off about the fact that someone from SmackDown was hosting the show instead of her, an actually good host.

Elliott said hearing her on the microphone was actually the most horrifying thing of the evening.

Shotzi decided to step in and handle things herself, screaming and then hitting Lash with a DDT.

They danced, and that was the segment.

The Schism are talking about helping people remove their masks, which many wear on many other days instead of just Halloween. No one wanted to buy in and now they’ll do it through force. They show the person in the red hoodie and they nod that they are ready to unmask.

Joe Gacy says this Tuesday we will see the big reveal and The Schism will become a group of four.

“We tried the peaceful approach. What happens next is your fault. Four roots, one tree.” And then they took yellow masks down to cover their faces.

A brief history on The Diamond Mine before this next one.

Ambulance Match: Julius Creed vs. Damon Kemp

How it went down: Julius jumped on Kemp early and they quickly battled their way to the Ambulance. Any hopes of a quick end were dashed when Kemp used a crutch to keep the door open. They fought all around the smaller arena, using the steps, a wheelchair, crutches, all of it. Kemp beat Julius up enough that when he put him in the Ambulance and it seemed over, it was a surprise when Julius put his hand in the door and allowed his fingers to get crushed as Damon kept slamming it shut. Anything to save his brother’s job, right? This actually ended up being when he turned things around, as he got a burst of adrenaline and absolutely took it to Kemp from there, spearing him into some desk chairs, using a folding chair to beat on him, and powerbombing him through a stretcher. Not long after, he took Kemp to the ambulance, put him in, and slammed the door shut. Brutus stays.

Julius Creed def. Damon Kemp

Brutus and Ivy Nile came out to celebrate with Julius in the ring. They were happy as hell about it.

The ambulance was shown driving off, just as Fyre and Rose were pulling in.

It’s time for that match!

NXT Women’s Championship: Mandy Rose vs. Alba Fyre

How it went down: Fyre brought Rose all the way into the ring and the referee instantly started the match, not even really bothering to make sure everyone was ready for it like usual. Who needs all that, it’s Halloween (Havoc)! You may have thought this wouldn’t go the distance, considering the earlier cinematic entry, but they worked a regular match. In the end, Fyre had the match won but Jayne and Dolin showed up to distract the referee, who then took a bump. When Fyre went out to get him, she was attacked without the ref seeing it and Rose used that to get the pin and win the match.

Mandy Rose def. Alba Fyre to retain the NXT women’s championship

Zoey Stark and Nikkita Lyons cut a promo saying they’re going to win the women’s tag team titles and they’re really happy about it. Edris Enofé and Malik Blade show up to say they, too, will be winning tag team titles in the men’s division. Everyone was very happy. It was nice to see!

They all left together to watch the main event. Pretty much the antithesis of what happened with the heel champions earlier in the evening.

Headline time.

NXT Championship: Bron Breakker vs. Ilja Dragunov vs. JD McDonagh

How it went down: Right off the bat, the story was established once more with Dragunov choosing to attack McDonagh straight away, completely ignoring the champion. Eventually they settled in and everyone was just kicking everyone else’s ass. Later, the plan Kevin Owens exposed, McDonagh turning Bron and Ilja against each other to his benefit, was shown as working out and he got caught clapping to it. So they turned on him and beat the trash out of him. We got one hell of a “holy shit” moment when Bron hit a Frankensteiner on JD and Ilja caught him and went into a powerbomb. They did a slick false finish when Dragunov hit three German suplexes on McDonagh, with Breakker coming in for the third and tossing Ilja, then hitting him with the bulldog off the top and the powerslam. But when he went for the pin, JD ran in to throw him out and steal it. Ilja just barely kicked out. When Breakker got back in, he got rid of McDonagh and went for a Spear but Dragunov countered with the knee and then hit the Torpedo for ... TWO! The referee was an inch away from three when McDonagh got in the ring and put his hand under the referee’s to stop the third slap of the mat. They beat each other down some more, with Ilja finally doing just enough to JD to keep him down for good. He didn’t have enough left for Breakker, though, as he went in for another Torpedo and ended up eating the Spear. That was it.

Not even a hint of a tease of a cash-in from Austin Theory.
