Tonight’s episode of NXT marks the return of the famous WCW Halloween Havoc PPV for just one night. In the opening competition, Johnny Gargano failed High Priest Damian in the “Elite Game” competition to become the first-twice NXT North American Champion.
The match was selected as part of the “Spin The Wheel, Make The Deal” gimmick, with NXT Halloween Havoc’s owner Shotzi Blackheart responsible for spinning the match selection wheel.
Later that night, it became clear that the rules of the Playground ground competition were counting everywhere without permission, without counting, with weapons allowed.
The match was misleading as the name implies but in the end, Gargano came up with the North American title, mostly thanks to a secret helper.

High Priest Damian and Johnny Gargano fought across the field, because the demolition order was valid everywhere. They also had a variety of weapons in their possession, from fire extinguishers to garbage trucks.
However, towards the end when their match reached the elevated stage in which the sports car was parked, an elderly man who had dressed and groomed from Ghostface from the Crying movies was ousted by the High Priest.
The masked man then handed a tombstone to Gargano who broke the High Priest’s head to send him to the concrete floor. Gargano then pinned the High Priest to the North American victory and title.
