  According to a source, WWE is considering replacing current pay-per-view names with WCW pay-per-view names.

  The source specifically mentioned Halloween Havoc and Starrcade as possible names to replace current pay-per-view names.  The idea is under consideration, but a final decision has not been made.

  The original 2018 WWE pay-per-view schedule advertised WWE TLC to take place in October.  According to a report in Newsweek, The Super Show-Down is currently the only scheduled pay-per-view in October of this year.  WWE TLC, which was originally scheduled to take place in October, is now scheduled to take place in December.  With TLC being moved to December, it is unclear if Clash of Champions will take place in December, if at all.

  Halloween Havoc was a popular Halloween-themed pay-per-view in WCW, which lasted from 1989 to 2000.  Starrcade was a popular NWA/Jim Crockett Promotions/WCW pay-per-view, which lasted from 1983 to 2000.  In 2017, Starrcade returned for one night only as a live event in WWE, to the historic Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.
