Wreaking Havoc

Wreaking: to inflict punishment, to take vengeance

Havoc: destruction, devastation, disorder

Together: wreaking havoc, to wreak havoc.

I have a theory why these words are always used together.

People were using them so infrequently, they decided to band together in the hope that they would be used more often.

It’s a case of survival of the fittest in the word world.
