The WWE universe is buzzing as Becky Lynch successfully defends her NXT Women’s Championship against Indi Hartwell on WWE Raw. This victory sets the scene for the two-part Halloween Havoc special, poised to start on October 24 and conclude on October 31.
No one is more invested in this development than Lynch’s Halloween Havoc opponent, Lyra Valkyria. Present at the October 23 WWE Raw event, Valkyria could not hold back her thoughts on Lynch’s triumphant retention.
“I absolutely had to be here tonight. I had to see it with my own two eyes that Becky would still be the champion come Halloween Havoc tomorrow,” she shared. “There’s only one thing in this world that I want more than to be the NXT Women’s Champion, and that’s to beat Becky Lynch to become the NXT Women’s Champion.”
Meanwhile, an exciting debut is set for the first week of Halloween Havoc as Lexis King (formerly AEW’s Brian Pillman Jr) prepares to step into the ring. In addition to Lynch’s title defense and King’s debut, Halloween Havoc Night One will feature numerous thrilling matches such as:
