NXT Halloween Havoc is a professional wrestling event produced by WWE for its third brand NXT. The first Halloween Havoc was held in 2020 and the fourth event will take place on October 24, 2023, and October 31, 2023. The event takes place as a special episode of NXT programming except for 2022 event, which took place as a WWE Network exclusive - TakeOver Halloween Havoc. The 2023 edition of the event took place on October 24 and 31, 2023 at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. It was hosted by Shotzi and Scarlett Bordeaux.


History of NXT Halloween Havoc


Halloween Havoc was the name of a PPV event organized by World Championship Wrestling (WCW) every year from 1989 to 2000. The company was sold to WWE in 2001 and its events were folded. WWE revived a number of WCW-based themes and PPVs for its NXT brand including Halloween Havoc, which it brought back as a television special for NXT in 2020.


Both the 2020 and 2021 editions of the event were held as special episodes of NXT before there was a slight change in 2022. The 2022 event was held as a WWE Network exclusive event and was held in the name of TakeOver: Halloween Havoc. For the 2023 event, WWE moved back to the Television special, but this time it was expanded to be a two-night event.
