NXT apologizes for the delay. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way things have worked around the world and the wrestling industry is no different. Everything has been turned on its head in recent months and there is no indication that things will be back to normal anytime soon. That means you are going to notice some things changing week to week and that was the case again recently.
This week, NXT presented Halloween Havoc, offering the first new edition of the famous series in twenty years. The show was quite the change of pace, with several wrestlers in costumes, two Spin The Wheel, Make The Deal matches, and a rather unique set with graces and a huge inflatable pumpkin. There was also someone under a Ghostface mask, and now we know who that someone was.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the person in the Ghostface mask was supposed to be Indi Hartwell, but she was unable to be identified on the show due to being quarantined over Coronavirus issues. The Ghostface helped Johnny Gargano win the North American Title and tried to help Candice LeRae win the Women’s Title but failed to make it work. Hartwell recently sent Gargano and LeRae a new television, plus videos of her helping LeRae in a #1 contenders battle royal. There is no word on when Hartwell will be allowed back at television.
She works without the mask too. Check out some of Hartwell:
Opinion: This is something that makes a lot of sense as Hartwell has been associated with Gargano and LeRae for reasons that are not yet clear. The good thing about a mask is that you can have whomever you need doing things and then the reveal can take place at anytime. It was a smart move to have something like this and if the reveal is delayed by a week or so, it doesn’t change anything. Hartwell could be interesting, and that’s what NXT needs at the moment.
What do you think of the move? Did the Ghostface interference work? Let us know in the comments below.
