One WWE star’s title has gone walkabout again at night one of NXT Halloween Havoc.
On night one of Halloween Havoc Becky Lynch lost her NXT Women’s Championship in the main event to Lyra Valkyria, possibly bringing The Man’s time on the white and gold brand to an end.
The NXT Tag Team Championship was also on the move as Andre Chase and Duke Hudson were able to overcome Tony D’Angelo and Stacks Lorenzo to bring the gold back to Chase U. But for one other champion on the brand, they lost their title without even competing.
The hosts of NXT Halloween Havoc, Shotzi and Scarlett, were seen backstage hosting a tarot card reading for the Meta-Four. Scarlett told the group a loss was on the cards and they scoffed with Noam Dar noting he had re-captured his Heritage Cup from Nathan Frazer.
With the group still arguing amongst themselves, none of them noticed that Akira Tozawa had appeared, helping himself to the NXT Heritage Cup and making a hasty exit with the hardware.

Does Akira Tozawa have a new home in WWE?
On Monday Night Raw, Akira Tozawa was presented as the newest recruit of Alpha Academy, and, along with Maxxine Dupri, he accompanied Otis and Chad Gable to the ring for their match against The New Day. Tozawa’s presence couldn’t help the Academy to a victory but later he went looking for his own match and laid down an ill-advised challenge to ‘Big’ Bronson Reed.
Ultimately, Reed demolished Tozawa in short order but he could have more success in the future if he sticks with Alpha Academy and learns from Chad Gable.
