Oro Mensa has punched her ticket for Halloween Havoc.

Mensa defeated Grayson Waller on the 9/20 episode of “NXT” to qualify for a 5-man North American Championship ladder match, where he will be joined by Carmelo Hayes and three other Superstars. It looked like Waller had won the match as he prepared to hit Mensa with a blockbuster, until the Apollo crew came out of nowhere at ringside. The distraction gave Mensa his big spinning heel kick debut for the pinfall win.

Mensa, FKA Oliver Carter in the “NXT UK” brand, made his “NXT” debut earlier this month.

In the coming weeks, three more Superstars will qualify for a ladder match scheduled for the “NXT” Halloween Havoc premium live event on October 22.

As previously mentioned, Hayes received a bye and qualified for the match as a two-time NA Champion. After calling Hayes and Solo Sequoia into his office, Shawn Michaels announced a ladder match for the vacant NA Title this week. Michaels noted that Hayes had to defend his title against Wes Lee, but faced a surprise challenge at Sequoia last week, when Hayes and Trick Williams attacked Lee backstage. Even though Solo stepped up to the challenge, he was not part of the fan voting to decide Hayes’ opponent, and thus was forced to vacate the title.

WWE has announced Wes Lee vs Tony D’Angelo In another “NXT” North American Championship qualifier match for next week’s show.
