Candice LeRae Beats Shotzi Blackheart, Faces Io Shirai At Halloween Havoc

Tonight’s match between Candice LeRae and Shotzi Blackheart was a big one, as the winner would go on to face Io Shirai at Halloween Havoc for the NXT Women’s Championship. Unfortunately for Blackheart, LeRae got some help from Indi Hartwell, who supplied LeRae with a pair of brass knuckles to help the superstar take down Blackheart and lock in another title opportunity.

With LeRae and Blackheart locked in an extremely close match, LeRae rolled out of the ring to avoid a slam from Blackheart. Once out of the ring, LeRae noticed Hartwell, who was standing behind some plexiglass. Hartwell quickly slipped LeRae a pair of brass knuckles, which LeRae used immediately to knock out Blackheart and pin her for the victory. Now, LeRae will face off against Io Shirai at Halloween Havoc for the NXT Women’s Championship, and Shirai will have to look out for any more sheningans.
