WWE NXT Halloween Havoc Night One Results 10/24 - Two Title Bouts, Lexis King Debuts

Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results for Night One of "NXT" Halloween Havoc on October 24, 2023, coming to you live from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida!

Tony D'Angelo and Channing "Stacks" Lorenzo will be putting the "NXT" Tag Team Championship on the line against Chase U's Andre Chase and Duke Hudson. Chase and Hudson secured their spot in the match after winning the Bada Bing Bada Boom Battle Royal last week.

The Family won't be the only one defending a title tonight, as Becky Lynch will be putting her "NXT" Women's Championship on the line as she takes on Lyra Valkyria Not only did Lynch retain her title against Indi Hartwell on last night's episode of "WWE Raw", but Hartwell played a role in Valkyria securing her spot in tonight's bout as she defeated her and Roxanne Perez in a Triple Threat Number One Contenders Match on the October 3 episode of "NXT".

Speaking of Perez, she will be competing in a bout of her own tonight as she faces Kiana James in a Devil's Playground Match. The pair have had no shortage of issues with one another, with Perez costing James her match against Shotzi last week before agreeing to Spin The Wheel, Make The Deal. Perez was not the only one to Spin The Wheel, Make The Deal, as Gigi Dolin did so last week following Blair Davenport's challenge to a match. Per the wheel, the longtime foes will be squaring off in a Lights Out Match.

On September 5, Bron Breakker sidelined Von Wagner with an injury when he attacked him with the ring steps following their No Disqualification Match. Mr. Stone has made his anger with Wagner being put on the shelf crystal clear, and even challenged Breakker to a match amidst a heated backstage confrontation last week. Breakker accepted, and Stone has the chance to exact his revenge tonight when the two go one-on-one.

Additionally, Lexis King will be making his in-ring debut against an opponent who has yet to be revealed.

We are live! The show kicks off with a live performance from New Years Day of their song, Vampyre.

Vic Joseph and Booker T then greet audiences at home before the hosts of tonight's show, Shotzi and Scarlett, welcome fans to Halloween Havoc and introduce Roxanne Perez and Kiana James.
