Let’s Talk Wrestling : WWE NXT 2.0 – “Halloween Havoc” – Episode 478 (10.26.2021) (Review)


NXT 2.0

Orlando, FL

Oct. 26th, 2021



WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Title Triple Threat Scareway To Hell Ladder Match
Io Shirai & Zoey Stark (c) vs. Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta vs. Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne)

A very fun, very chaotic, but very messy ladder match. Some really fun spots and moments but some really serious and close calls here that could have gone so much worse. Io’s ladder spot was brutal. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Joe Gacy vs. Malik Blade

Pretty much a glorified squash match. Gacy looked good though. 

1 / 5

Non Title Match
Roderick Strong (w/Brutus Creed, Hachiman, Ivy Nile, Julius Creed & Malcolm Bivens) vs. Odyssey Jones

Just an okay match. Vastly different sizes between Jones and Strong. Was just too short for any momentum to really get going. 

1.5 / 5

WWE NXT Women’s Title Trick Or Street Fight
Raquel Gonzalez (c) vs. Mandy Rose

A solid match but a train wreck also. Both women looked strong here taking a fair amount of damage. It was just a messy match though, spots looked odd and like they did’t hit right. Having it be a trick or treat match but not Halloween themed it odd too. 

2 / 5

WWE NXT Tag Team Title Lumber-Jack O’Lantern Match
MSK (Nash Carter & Wes Lee) (c) vs. Imperium (Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel)

 A fun match even though the lumberjack aspect wasn’t great here. MSK got their really good spots and high flying moves in. Imperium as always is great and worked together as a team well to avoid MSKs moves. Nothing groundbreaking here but a fun match. 

3.5 / 5

WWE NXT Title Match
Tommaso Ciampa (c) vs. Bron Breakker

Shockingly much better than expected. Ciampa had to play aggressive the entire match as Breakker came off as hungry for the belt and kicked out of many moves. It was smart too because Breakker came off of here looking like he can hold his own in a long singles match and as tough with Ciampa needing a flurry of big moves and finishers to put him down for the count. 

3.5 / 5
