This week’s episode of WWE NXT is slated to be a special edition as it will have the Halloween Havoc theme in addition to a few big matches.
The show will also have a slight advantage as TV listings currently have this show with an eight minute overrun on the USA Network.
As it stands right now, the show will air from 8pm until 10:08pm. The idea behind doing this is something that WWE did for decades with Monday Night Raw as it will likely help increase the viewership numbers for the final quarter of the show as people will tune into the network to watch the program following the WWE show.
The USA Network has done this in the past with bigger NXT shows that have special episodes as well.
WWE has also confirmed that Pat McAfee will be appearing alongside new NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. Here is the current card for the show:
NXT North American Title Match (Spin The Wheel, Make A Deal):
Johnny Gargano vs. Damian Priest (champion)
NXT Women’s Title Match (Spin The Wheel, Make A Deal):
Candice LeRae vs. Io Shirai (champion)
Rhea Ripley vs. Raquel Gonzalez
Haunted House of Terror Match:
Cameron Grimes vs. Dexter Lumis
