Halloween NXT-Style, The Best Wrestler Costumes, And More | Wrestle Buddies Episode 26

This week, we celebrate Halloween by talking about our favorite wrestling costumes and ripping off NXT Halloween Havoc.


This week on Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot's professional wrestling podcast, Chris E. Hayner and Mat Elfring are celebrating Halloween the only way they know how--it's the first-ever Wrestle Buddies Halloween Spooktacular. This episode is filled with tricks and treats as we talk about Halloween costumes, NXT's Halloween Havoc, an all-star Wrestlepiece Theatre, and a certain hacker hijacks the show once again.

First up, we have many thoughts about the best pro wrestling Halloween costumes--including some we've created ourselves. With so much wrestling history to dig through for costume ideas, we break down the best and worst options, our dream costumes, and wonder what the most expensive wrestling cosplay would be.

Up next, Mat surprises Chris with an all-new Wrestlepiece theater, complete with special appearances by the GameSpot all-stars Kallie Plagge, Chastity Vicencio, and Tamoor Hussain, along with We Enjoy Wrestling hosts Eric Goldman and Matt Fowler.

Next, once again, the Smackdown Hacker breaks into the show, blocking Mat's video feed. Not surprisingly, he doesn't reveal much. However, the hacker does share his thoughts on whether or not he wants to join Retribution.

No Caption Provided

Finally, a Wrestle Buddies listener saw NXT's Halloween Havoc wheel of ridiculous matches and made one for the show. It's time for spin the wheel, answer the NXT question and we couldn't think of a better way to spend Halloween.

New episodes of Wrestle Buddies are released every Thursday on the podcast platform or app of your choice, including Spotify, Stitcher, and Apple Podcasts. You can also keep up to date with the podcast by following it on Twitter.
