NXT BRINGING BACK CLASSIC WCW GIMMICK FOR HALLOWEEN HAVOC

By Mike Johnson on 2020-10-14 22:26:00

WWE NXT announced they would be bringing back a classic WCW gimmick staple for the resurrected Halloween Havoc in two weeks - Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal.

Originally conceived for the 1992 Halloween Havoc main event featuring Sting vs. Jake Roberts, the idea was Sting would spin the wheel and the two would battle in a random gimmick match decided by chance.  That bout ended up being a Coal Miner's Glove match, the first and last time that bout headlined a PPV ever.

In 1993, Big Van Vader and Cactus Jack headlined Halloween Havoc with Cactus spinning the wheel and landing on a Texas Death Match, a legitimately great bout that still holds up today.

Set for WWE NXT's Halloween Havoc:

*Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal: WWE NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai vs. Candice LaRae.

*Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal: WWE NXT North American Champion Damian Priest vs. Johnny Gargano.

*Rhea Ripley vs. Raquel Gonzales.

*Shotzi Blackheart hosts Halloween Havoc.
