It is the hour of the wolf and so they strive to keep all work content free. Bad faith of evil men manufactures consensus reality, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with Wade Barrett introducing his commentary partners tonight, Byron Saxton and Sudu Shah.

Pretty Deadly make their entrance in ermine capes, knee breeches, and powdered wigs and take a podium set up in the ring to address the NXT Commonwealth.

They recount their journey from the UK to make NXT a better place and say they have Briggs and Jensen’s number, which is 1-800-UGLY-DENIM. Edris Enofe and Malik Blade, or Sweater Vest and Oily Chest Man, are simply not good enough, and then there’s the Boring Brothers.

Damon Kemp might be closing the Diamond Mine’s doors forever, skip the Dyad because they creep Kit Wilson out, and Elton Prince says they have no choice. He bangs his hammer and calls for order before decreeing, with no challengers in sight, that Pretty Deadly shall be awarded the tag titles forever and ever, amen.

The Brawling Brutes are here!

Ridge Holland says Pretty Deadly have been talking tough about what happened to Sheamus on SmackDown, so they’re here tonight to see how tough they really are. Pete Dunne asks the crowd if anyone objects to kicking the tag champs heads in and gets affirmative from them.

Pretty Deadly blame Kevin Nash, Kevin Patrick, and Kevin Owens, but the Brutes rush the ring. Holland says they like to dress up and talk about how great they are, but all they ask is that they prove it. Tonight’s Tuesday, and that means it’s fight night!

The Brutes attack and send Pretty Deadly running!

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams make their entrance to send us to break.

We see Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez walking backstage to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Grayson Waller is in the ring for the Grayson Waller Effect.

He welcomes us to the show and introduces his guests, Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez.

Cora asks Roxanne how many people she had to cry to in order to get the rematch, and she says it was easy because everybody wants to see her kick her ass. Waller tells them to stop interrupting him and this is his show. Perez says she feels nothing and is going into the match with no emotion, unlike at Heatwave.

Jade mocks her for getting emotional and Roxanne says this isn’t a sob story and they wanted to break into WWE together and raise the bar, together, to be what the Four Horsewomen were to them, but as soon as Perez got a little ahead, Cora ditched her. Jade says after she beats her again, everyone will realize that she’s a whole lot of hype and not a lot of talent.

Perez says Cora and her Generation of Jade are full of shit, and Grayson admonishes her for language and for interrupting again. He’s got two big scoops, saying in two weeks they’ll be choosing each others’ opponents and the whole roster is fair game. Second thing, their match at Halloween Havoc is a Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal Match.

Grayson wants to spin the wheel now and goes out of the ring to do it while security get in the ring to keep Jade and Perez separated. Waller shys from a dark figure in a hooded robe and checks him to make sure he’s not Apollo Crews. He wants a Coal Miner’s Glove Match but the wheel spins... it’s a Weapons Wild Match!

Jade tries to attack Perez but security separates them! Crews is here and he pulls Waller out of the ring and then under it! Grayson crawls out from under the ring, his eyes bleeding like in Apollo’s vision!

We see Julius Creed getting ready for his match and we go to break.

The Schism are talking backstage to the person who was handing buttons out earlier.

Joe Gacy says he’s not mad, he’s disappointed, and says they need to be better.

Duke Hudson vs. Julius Creed

Creed in hot, big spinebuster early sets him up...

Julius Creed wins by pinfall with a falling lariat.

Post-match, Damon Kemp rolls up to taunt the Creeds.

Julius says he’s ready to take him out, and Damon says Brutus is his bitch, and he’s so confident that if Julius does beat him at Halloween Havoc, he’ll give Brutus another match, under one condition. Brutus says he just needs five minutes and says he’ll do whatever it takes.

Kemp says the stipulation is about his brother and he can’t accomplish the things he’s here for if he constantly looks over his shoulder— if he beats Julius, Brutus is gone from NXT! Julius says pinfall or submission isn’t good enough, and he’s got a stipulation— it’s an Ambulance Match!

Kemp says that sounds good and Creed tells him to get his shit together because he’s waiting!

We get a JD McDonagh video package for his end of the Halloween Havoc title match.

Security Man Hank Walker is backstage and his security pals are talking him up ahead of his first match as a real member of the roster tonight.

He says Xyon Quinn ain’t gonna know what hit him, and Quincy Elliott rolls up to give him a heads-up that Quinn is probably pissed off, and we go to break.

Cameron Grimes confronts smiley man backstage and tries to talk him out of helping the Schism when the Dyad attack and beat him down, throwing him into a road case! They smash him with a trash can and Joe congratulates smiley man on a job well done and welcomes him to the Schism’s tree.

They all hug and leave together.

Brawling Brutes and Briggs and Jensen are talking backstage when Edris Enofe and Malik Blade roll up.

They bicker about who deserves the next title shot and Pete Dunne smashes a chair into the lockers to shut everyone up. Ridge Holland tells them they’ll have to be aggressive and serious if they want a shot, and they leave talking about bangers.

Brawling Brutes make their entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Bron Breakker is interviewed.

He admits Halloween Havoc’s gonna be a dog fight—

Javier Bernal rolls up and introduces himself and claims that Bron has all the tools in the world except for his brain. Breakker says his temper got him into his first triple threat, his pride into this one, and Javi’s stupidity’s gonna get him into a match against Bron next week.

Brawling Brutes (Pete “Butch” Dunne & Ridge Holland) vs. Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) (c) (NXT Tag Team Championship)

Back inside, rebound German suplex, one for Prince too, assisted Codebreaker from the champs but Holland breaks it up!

Into some “everybody do something cool” territory, Holland sends Elton packing, Pete has the cross armbar but Prince shoves Kit to reverse it to a pin for two! Wishbone the fingers, Bitter End... TOO CLOSE TO THE ROPES AND ELTON PRINCE PUTS WILSON’S FOOT ON THE ROPES!

Ridge tags in, roundhouse / Emerald Flowsion but no pin because Imperium run in! Brawling...

Pretty Deadly win by pinfall with Spilt Milk on Ridge Holland to retain the NXT Tag Team Championship.
