WWE has announced a new addition to the card for NXT Halloween Havoc.
NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar will face Jake Atlas in a non-title match on this Wednesday’s Halloween Havoc episode of NXT. The match comes after Escobar and Atlas faced off in six-man tag team action on NXT last week.
Legado del Fantasma (Escobar, Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde) defeated Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Atlas & Ashante “Thee” Adonis on NXT last Wednesday. Atlas laid out Escobar with a cartwheel DDT on the outside near the end of the match and said he’s going to be the next NXT Cruiserweight Champion, but Legado del Fantasma got the win when Wilde pinned Adonis.
Here’s the updated lineup for Halloween Havoc:
Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal: NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai defends against Candice LeRae
Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal: NXT North American Champion Damian Priest defends against Johnny Gargano
Rhea Ripley vs. Raquel Gonzalez
Haunted House of Terror match: Dexter Lumis vs. Cameron Grimes
Non-title match: NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar vs. Jake Atlas
