Never has there been a greater need to make a sense of occasion out of Halloween than in this putrid stain of a year.
Prior Octobers may have been spent getting dressed up, throwing parties or helping the younger members of your family go and beg the neighbours for the contents of their their treat cupboard, but much of that has been taken by the same global b*stard that's taken everything else over the last several months.
Except, perhaps, for that first one.
NXT Halloween Havoc promises a few wrestlers getting into the seasonal spirit with costumes fit for contests, and while this particular show had nothing of the sort, it sill contained a great deal of wrestlers that would very possibly (and enthusiastically) try if they were given a chance.
Hell In A Cell took a couple of blood feuds and added secret styles, and even the undercard offered various tailorings that could be deemed as both tricks and treats. If this year's product has taught us anything, it's that pay-per-view has suddenly become premium again. Shorter runtimes equals less places and more clashes for spots. Could picking quality attires be what leaves 'em wanting more? These performers certainly thought so...
