WWE And WCW Terminology

WWE has already used several WCW terms for its programming, including the Night Of Champions pay-per-view coming from the final episode of WCW Monday Nitro. WWE has also used Starrcade in the past with that term coming from WCW’s biggest annual event. To this day, WWE NXT hosts an annual Halloween Havoc show which like the WCW show of the same name, takes place in October and has a spooky theme.
