WWE NXT Level Up Preview

NXT: Level Up is airing tonight on WWE Network and Peacock. The newest WWE Network and Peacock program will be featuring three matches tonight. This includes Oro Mensah vs. Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo, Thea Hail in action, and more.

Below is the preview for this episode:

Catch an action-packed edition of NXT Level Up, featuring Oro Mensah taking on Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo in a thrilling main event, Dani Palmer making her first WWE appearance against Thea Hail, and Dante Chen colliding with the debuting Oba Femi.

A former NXT UK Tag Team Champion, the lightning-quick Mensah often leaves jaws on the floor due to his astonishing athleticism as well as his fearless aerial attack.

Having won his first NXT Level Up match against Xyon Quinn, Mensah now seeks a monumental victory against “Stacks,” who has won his last four matches on WWE’s newest brand and seems likely to be backed up by his nefarious boss, “The Don of NXT” Tony D’Angelo.

The ever-enthusiastic Hail is probably jumping at the thought of schooling a debuting Superstar, as the prized pupil of Chase University has used Professor Andre Chase’s teachings to win four of her last five matches on NXT Level Up.

Palmer has impressed many in NXT with her attitude and is looking to start her career with a bang against the slightly more experienced Hail.

One of the deadliest strikers in WWE, Chen has made a name for himself on NXT Level Up, posting impressive wins against the likes of Bryson Montana, Javier Bernal and Myles Borne.

This Friday, however, Chen steps into the unknown when he collides with Femi, an imposing competitor who has turned some heads at the Performance Center due to his jaw-dropping power.

Don’t miss an amazing episode of NXT Level Up, streaming Friday at 10/9 C on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else!
