Candice LeRae Unmasks Ghostface

On Wednesday night’s edition of NXT, ‘The Poison Pixie’ Candice LeRae revealed the identity of Ghostface.

The Ghostface saga has been one of the most intriguing mysteries NXT has ever done in its illustrious history, with many speculating over who was under the mask.

After LeRae stole a victory from Toni Storm with her feet on the ropes – who was fighting the corner of Shotzi Blackheart – the Australian saw red and attacked her oppressor only for Ghostface to make the save.

Seconds later, Blackheart stormed the ring to target the two people responsible for the destruction of her tank but couldn’t fend off the machinations of LeRae and her spooky cohort. With both Storm and Shotzi at their mercy, LeRae ordered the figure to unmask to unveil Indi Hartwell.

Two weeks ago, Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter had let slip that Hartwell was originally meant to be under the mask at NXT Halloween Havoc. However, she was forced to quarantine following a minor outbreak of COVID-19 at the WWE Performance Center and had to be replaced.

It was unknown whether NXT were going to stick with Hartwell as Ghostface or weave an even more intriguing story.

Ghostface first made her appearance at NXT Halloween Havoc two weeks ago, costing Damian Priest the NXT North American Championship and almost aiding Candice in capturing the NXT Women’s Championship.
