– In a media call after the “NXT Halloween Havoc” special, Shawn Michaels was asked by reporters if he plans to tour with the NXT brand again. WWE Senior Vice President of Talent Development & Creative confirmed that it is targeting NXT shows outside Florida in early 2023. During this, Michaels revealed that there are still plans for NXT Japan and NXT Mexico and that he would also like to announce news here during 2023.
– Brock Lesnar has now been announced for the Monday Night Raw edition in Dallas, Texas on October 31. This is the final Raw show before the WWE Crown Jewel PPV where Lesnar will face Bobby Lashley.
According to Dave Meltzer, the main reason for the decision to replace Electra López in the “Lagado del Fantasma” stable with Zelina Vega is that López is not yet confident of playing singles matches regularly on the main roster. For example, booking a match between Elektra Lopez and B-Fab was considered a bad idea when a feud between Hit Row and Legado del Fantasma was on the mind. So Electra Lopez will be with NXT for a while to work on her in-ring skills.
