Triple H took to Twitter to praise Shotzi Blackheart and new #1 contender Candice LeRae for last night’s WWE NXT match.

As noted, LeRae defeated Blackheart, thanks to an assist from Indi Hartwell, to earn a match with NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai at Halloween Havoc. Triple H praised both competitors and said he can’t wait to see the match on October 28.

He wrote, “Two performances worthy of a championship opportunity. @ShotziWWE and @CandiceLeRae just showcased what an opportunity to lead this division means to them. #Proud … and ready to watch #HalloweenHavoc in two weeks. #WWENXT”

Blackheart, the host of the special Halloween Havoc episode, later revealed that the “Spin the Wheel, Make a Deal” gimmick will return for LeRae vs. Shirai and Johnny Gargano vs. NXT North American Champion Damian Priest at Halloween Havoc.
