Our host Shotzi Blackheart literally made sparks fly from the electric chair by the Wheel in what is supposed to be one of her four costume changes for the night a Frankenstein esque look

Looks like we have a version of the classic set, graveyard, inflatable pumpkin & at least glimpses of the gargoyle

Gargano as Jack Skellington (of course he would be, his classic logo has been Jack’s face for ages so of course he’d come as The Pumpkin King)

Shotzi spins the wheel & we have a Devil’s Playground Match

Cameron Grimes is nervously pacing. General Manager William Regal comes up to him and tells him to head to the parking lot where a van is waiting to take him to his Haunted House of Terror match. Grimes is confused, the ring is in the CWC and he thought Mr. Regal wanted him to have a match with Dexter Lumis. He doesn’t want to go to the parking lot, it’s the most dangerous place! Regal doesn’t care and ushers him out to his ride

McAfee is on the mic in the ring with Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan. He rags on the fans a bit, and then launches into a slightly modified version of the promo explaining his actions that he hired Ridge Holland to take out Cole before Ridge’s horrific injury. He calls for mics for the Brit-Am Brawlers, but he’s interrupted by Kyle O’Reilly. KOR is alone since every other member of the ERA is injured, but O’Reilly brought back-up… it’s Pete Dunne! They chase McAfee’s guys to the apron with chairs, and the Bruiserweight blasts O’Reilly with the chair! Dunne and the Brawlers beat down Kyle, and Pete breaks his fingers and stomps the elbow. Then the champs lift him up, McAfee sets a chair up and they DDT him down on it! Pat tells “Cauliflower Kyle” that’s Undisputed!

We head backstage, and Mr. Regal sends Grimes outside. A van rolls up with a zombie in the passenger seat, and Michael PS Hayes dressed in orange & black in the back. The Freebird cuts the Bad Street USA promo on Grimes while his song plays, then struts off after nudging Cameron into the van. Grimes says he hates rednecks

Drake Maverick is dressed as The Dark Side of Hulk Hogan and cutting a promo when he’s interrupted by McKenzie Mitchell. He gets caught between & humped by The Giant and The Yeti (I guess history is repeating itself), then The Shockmaster comes through the curtain. That’s Killian Dain, who refuses to trip like Drake set it up. They run down all the stuff Drake’s planned that he hates, Maverik asks if Dain has any idea how long it took to sparkle that Stormtrooper helmet then Maverick puts on the helmet & trips as Dain laughs at him

Grimes has made it back to the arena on foot & it looks like he’s ending up in an old Dungeon of Doom backstage segment, as demons & zombies raise from the grave, Grimes tells them to stop, he backs into the ring, the ring fills with smoke as Dex as appeared, he tosses Grimes then hits a Spinebuster, the Zombies embrace Dex, Grimes hits one of the zombies with a Cave In, the other rides on Dex’s shoulders, he tosses it into Grimes then Dex plants him with a Sambo Suplex and converts into Silence for the win
