WWE's NXT Halloween Havoc kicked off with a huge title change in the form of an enormous title change. Johnny Gargano faced Damian Priest in a match for the NXT North American title. During the match, there was an interruption by a mysterious masked figure, who came out, hit Priest with a kendo stick, and handed Johnny Gargano the tombstone that allowed Gargano to win the match over Priest.
As a result, Johnny Gargano became the North American Champion in WWE. Triple H was thrilled with the results of the first match, and things only continued from there.
Later on in the night, Rhea Ripley faced Raquel Gonzalez in a women's match, to which the reaction was spectacular. In one of the most physical fights seen on the brand, Rhea Ripley had to throw everything and the kitchen sink at Raquel Gonzalez to win the match, and got praised by the man behind NXT for her troubles.
The reactions kept on coming, and at the end of the night, after Io Shirai was able to defeat Candice LeRae, Triple H was lost for words. The match ended after Shotzi Blackheart stopped a masked figure from interfering and helping LeRae. Triple H also had some kind words for Blackheart as well, for the WWE Superstar's work in the position as host.
