WWE announces NXT Halloween Havoc for October 28


For the first time in 20 years, Halloween Havoc is making its return.

A video that aired during NXT TakeOver 31 tonight announced that NXT Halloween Havoc will take place on Wednesday, October 28. The episode will be hosted by NXT wrestler Shotzi Blackheart.

"Are you scared? You should be," NXT tweeted. "@ShotziWWE hosts #WWENXT #HalloweenHavoc on Wednesday, October 28th at 8/7c on @USA_Network!!! Trick or treat, @WWEUniverse..."

Paul "Triple H" Levesque had teased during his appearance on WWE's The Bump last week that we would be hearing news about the return of a classic event tonight. In June, WWE brought back the In Your House name for a TakeOver show. The Great American Bash name was then revived for a two-week event on NXT television this July.

This will be the first time WWE has used the Halloween Havoc name for an event since WCW closed its doors. Halloween Havoc was first introduced in 1989 and took place annually until 2000. The final WCW Halloween Havoc pay-per-view was held in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 29, 2000.
