Pat McAfee to appear at WWE NXT Halloween Havoc


After making his return last week, Pat McAfee will be appearing at NXT Halloween Havoc.

A commercial that aired during Raw tonight announced that McAfee will appear on NXT's Halloween Havoc episode this Wednesday. He'll be appearing alongside new NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch.

McAfee aligned with Lorcan & Burch last week and helped them win the NXT Tag Team titles from Breezango. It had originally been announced that Undisputed Era's Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish would be challenging Breezango for the Tag Team titles, but there were angles during last week's show where Strong and Fish were attacked backstage. Kyle O'Reilly told William Regal to give Lorcan & Burch the title shot after Strong & Fish were attacked. Strong & Fish had defeated Lorcan & Burch the previous week to become the number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team titles.

A masked attacker pushed Fandango off the top rope in last week's Tag Team title match. After Lorcan & Burch got the win, the masked attacker was revealed to be McAfee. He mocked Undisputed Era and cut a post-show promo where he said he, Lorcan, and Burch are the new kings of this brand and they're nowhere near done with what they're going to do to NXT.

McAfee, a sports media personality and former All-Pro punter for the Indianapolis Colts, made his in-ring debut by losing to Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver XXX this August. There was then an angle where Cole was attacked by Ridge Holland at NXT TakeOver 31. McAfee posted a video explaining that he hired Holland to attack Cole and then reached out to Lorcan & Burch after Holland got injured. McAfee said Lorcan & Burch were the ones to attack Strong & Fish.

Here's the updated lineup for Halloween Havoc:

  • Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal: NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai defends against Candice LeRae
  • Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal: NXT North American Champion Damian Priest defends against Johnny Gargano
  • Rhea Ripley vs. Raquel Gonzalez
  • Haunted House of Terror match: Dexter Lumis vs. Cameron Grimes
