WWE NXT Halloween Havoc Quick Recap for October 26, 2021

Matches Tonight: Six
  • NXT Women's Tag Team Championship Triple-Threat Scareway to Hell Match: Io Shirai & Zoey Stark(c) vs Toxic Attraction vs Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta. Solid match with several big spots that saw Toxic Attraction pick up their first title win. 8:01-8:18pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Joe Gacy vs Malik Blade. Gacy won the boring semi-squash, and made friends with Harland afterwards. 8:22-8:27pm EST.
  • The Diamond Mine's Pick-Your-Poison Open Challenge: Odyssey Jones vs Roderick Strong. The Diamond Mine issued an open challenge to anyone--male, female, or tag superstar alike, Bivens had someone ready to beat some ass. Strong picked up the win in this non-title match after the Creed Brothers caused a distraction. 8:35-8:40pm EST.
  • NXT Women's Championship Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal Match: Raquel Gonzalez(c) vs Mandy Rose. Special Stipulation: Trick or Street Fright. Decent match that saw Rose pick up the NXT Women's Championship--and ensure all three members of Toxic Attraction have gold on their waists--after interference from a costumed and returning Dakota Kai. 8:50-9:03pm EST.
  • NXT Tag Team Championship Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal Match: MSK(c) vs Imperium. Special Stipulation: Lumber-Jack o' Lantern Match. Standard Lumberjack rules. A great back-and-forth match that saw Imperium pick up new gold after hitting the Imperium Bomb. 9:25-9:38pm EST.
  • NXT Championship Match: Tommaso Ciampa(c) vs Bron Breakker. Great match, hot crowd, and another title defense for Ciampa. Bron Breakker looked great in this losing effort. 9:47-9:59pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Mystery Superstar Unveiled: Dakota Kai returned, costing Gonzalez her title in the process.
  • Lashing Out with Lash Legend's Halloween Havoc Special: Didn't happen--a pair of backstage "party" segments occurred, during which Lash invited Tony D'Angelo to her show next week.
  • The Haunted (Gargano) House: Trick Williams & Carmelo Hayes braved the Dexter Lumis & Johnny Gargano haunted house in an effort to find Hayes' stolen NXT North American title belt. Ultimately they were successful after some incredibly lame scares. So lame they make my lame puns look like the Hangover.
  • Halloween Knight: LA Knight seemingly failed to show, so "runner up" Grayson Waller served as tonight's host. Later we discovered that Waller (probably) sabotaged Knight's car, as Knight did return shortly before the program ended.
  • Next Week on NXT: Lashing Out with Lash Legend will host Tony D'Angelo (instead of tonight).
  • Changes: Four title matches, four title exchanges. Solo Sikoa's "debut" advertised this morning was simply his showing up to beat up Grayson Waller.
