Tossing Salt Presents:
WWE NXT Halloween Havoc PPV
Thoughts & Predictions
October 21, 2022
WWE NXT will present their first-ever Halloween Havoc PLE tomorrow night from the WWE Performance Center, with Shotzi Blackheart and Quincy Elliott hosting. Here’s my take on what will go down.
WWE NXT Champion Bron Breakker vs. JD McDonagh vs. Ilja Dragonuv.
I want to say that Breakker will retain the title here, but a new face has been thrown into the mix with Austin Theory teasing a cash-in on the Money In The Bank contract. What difference will that make? Dragonuv is a hell of a wrestler. I remember his series of matches with WALTER and he’s one bad-ass dude, but I don’t think the American fans are familiar enough with him as of yet. JD McDonagh? I’m clueless about him. I’ve seen the name a few times, but aside from that, I just don’t know. Let’s go for Breakker to win and retain.
Winner and STILL NXT Champion: Bron Breakker
And then, it’s time for Theory to cash in the briefcase and win the title in a post-match ambush. Yes, I’m calling for the cash-in.
Winner and NEW NXT Champion: Austin Theory
WWE NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose vs. Alba Fyre.
Mandy Rose has really found herself in NXT as the Champion and while it might be time to do a title switch, I don’t think it’s happening here. Fyre is damn good and it’ll be a good match, but that title belt is staying exactly where it is.
Winner and STILL NXT Women’s Champion: Mandy Rose
Carmelo Hayes vs. Oro Mensah vs. Wes Lee vs. Von Wagner vs. Nathan Frazer – Ladder Match to crown new WWE NXT North American Champion.
Carmelo was stripped of the title under dubious means. He should get the title back here.
Winner and NEW NXT North American Champion: Carmelo Hayes
Damon Kemp vs. Julius Creed – Ambulance Match with Brutus Creed’s career on the line.
The build for this match has been really good and I can only hope that the match equals the antici… pation. Creed isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Kemp takes that trip to the hospital while Creed wins and lives to take that trip to the pay window if you will.
Winner: Julius Creed
Cora Jade vs. Roxanne Perez – Weapons Wild Match.
The song “The Real Roxanne” by Roxanne & UTFO popped up on my YouTube feed this morning. It’s a sign. Roxanne Perez wins.
Winner: Roxanne Perez
Apollo Crews vs. Grayson Waller – Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal.
From what I understand, Waller tried to blind Crews and this is Crews’ out looking for revenge. Since blinding was involved, I guess we’ll get a blindfold match, although I hope not. The last good one of those was Jamie Noble versus Nidia on Smackdown fifteen years ago. Maybe we’ll get a Snow Bunny match? Okay, maybe not. It doesn’t matter what the wheel decides though. The outcome will be the same. Crews should win, but my gut is saying Waller.
Winner: Grayson Waller
And there you go. My predictions for Halloween Havoc. Am I right? Am I wrong? We’ll find out tomorrow night on PPV and Peacock. And with that, I’m out of here. Thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. What are your predictions? Let me know. Until the next time, take care and be good. I’ll see you at the matches.
