It’s been done. Wrestling is a unique form of entertainment, as it exists in its own bubble, with a unique presentation that makes it feel different than anything else. It is rare to see wrestling cross over with over forms of entertainment, but it certainly can make for some unique situations. That is what we are going to be seeing again next week in a bit of corporate synergy.
The USA Network has announced that Chucky, the doll from the Child’s Play franchise, will be guest starring on the October 26 Halloween Havoc special edition of NXT. There is no word on what Chucky will be doing on the show. This will be the second time that Chucky has appeared on a wrestling show, as he appeared on WCW Monday Nitro on October 12, 1999.
This is something different. Check out the announcement, Chucky’s time on Monday Nitro and what to expect from Halloween Havoc:
Opinion: I mean…why not? Odds are this is going to be some kind of a backstage segment which is little more than a funny cameo. It also helps a bit that this is being announced in advance rather than some big surprise. Of course it’s silly, but when you have people like Tony D’Angelo and Tian Sha on the same show, this isn’t that much of a stretch for the most part.
What do you think of the cameo? What should Chucky do? Let us know in the comments below.
