WWE NXT match to determine Halloween Havoc host


Update --

The Creed Brothers vs. Imperium's Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner has also been added to tonight's NXT.


A match on tonight's NXT will determine the host for Halloween Havoc 2021.

WWE has announced that Grayson Waller vs. LA Knight will take place on NXT tonight, and the winner will be the host for next Tuesday's Halloween Havoc episode of NXT.

The Waller vs. Knight match was set up when they went back and forth on Twitter over who should be the host of Halloween Havoc. After Waller lobbied to be the host of the event, Knight responded by calling Waller's video trash. Waller then told Knight that the NXT originals are sweating the new NXT 2.0 wrestlers.

Knight said he'd never sweat someone who looks like Waller, and he'll always stand head and shoulders above everyone else regardless of what version of NXT it is. Knight said he didn't even know who Waller was until 24 hours ago.

Shotzi Blackheart was the host of last year's NXT Halloween Havoc.

Here's the updated lineup for tonight's NXT:

  • NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa & Bron Breakker vs. The Grizzled Young Veterans 
  • Triple threat match to determine who will spin the wheel for the Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal NXT Women's Tag Team title match at Halloween Havoc (tonight's triple threat match will feature one member of Io Shirai & Zoey Stark, Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta, and Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne)
  • Odyssey Jones vs. Andre Chase
  • Tony D'Angelo in action
  • Grayson Waller vs. LA Knight (winner will host next week's Halloween Havoc episode)
  • The Creed Brothers vs. Imperium
