WWE NXT Halloween Havoc Logo

Wes Lee is headed to Halloween Havoc.

During the 9/27 episode of WWE NXT 2.0, former NXT Tag Team Champion, Wes Lee defeated Tony D’Angelo to qualify for the North American Title Ladder Match that will take place at the brand’s Halloween Havoc event on Saturday, October 22.

Lee picked up the win after D’Angelo went face-first into the exposed top turnbuckle and the match was stopped by the referee, who deemed D’Angelo unable to continue.

Solo Sikoa was forced to vacate the North American Championship after Shawn Michaels announced that Sikoa was ineligible from competing against now-former champion, Carmelo Hayes, nullifying his title win over the latter.

Michaels would then announced a four-way ladder match for the now-vacant North American Title, which will take place at Halloween Havoc on Saturday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m. EDT/4:00 p.m. PDT.

Hayes was announced for the match since he was the former champion and Oro Mensah defeated Grayson Waller on last week’s show to earn the second spot in the four-way ladder match.

The updated card for Halloween Havoc can be found below:

  • Bron Breakker (C) vs. Ilja Dragunov vs. JD McDonagh — NXT Championship
  • Carmelo Hayes vs. Oro Mensah vs. Wes Lee vs. TBA — Ladder Match, NXT North American Championship
