Tis the season. Wrestling is about having fun and entertaining the fans in one way or another. There are multiple ways to do just that and some of them are a lot goofier than others. At times, the best thing that can be done is just do something entertaining without trying to be overly serious. That took place again this weekend as an annual tradition was brought back.
NXT brought back its Halloween costume battle royal over the weekend at a live event in Melbourne, Florida. The match included several women competing for an NXT Women’s Title shot against Mandy Rose in the show’s main event. Thea Hail, who was dressed as Andre Chase, won the battle royal but lost to Rose in the title match. Here are some of the participants, including how their costumes looked:

Opinion: This is the kind of fun that is perfect for a live event as the cameras aren’t rolling and the wrestlers can have a good time and goof off a bit. Wearing a costume is something that lets the wrestlers go in a different direction and it isn’t like this is anything more than a one off moment. If nothing else, it is nice to see the creativity shine through, as it does every year.
What do you think of the costumes? Which was the best? Let us know in the comments below.
