WWE NXT Level Up Preview
NXT: Level Up is airing Friday on WWE Network and Peacock. The newest WWE Network and Peacock program will be featuring three matches Friday. This includes Oro Mensah vs. Charlie Dempsey, Eddy Thorpe vs. Xyon Quinn, and Lyra Valkyria in action.
Below is the preview for this episode:
Don’t miss an amazing edition of NXT Level Up, featuring Oro Mensah battling Charlie Dempsey in a clash of styles, Lyra Valkyria throwing down with Dani Palmer, and Eddy Thorpe engaging Xyon Quinn.
In a collision between two competitors with vastly different fighting styles, the highflying Mensah will look to use his aerial assaults against Dempsey, a deadly serious mat grappler.
Piling up wins at a rapid pace on NXT 2.0 as well as NXT Level Up, Dempsey has recently caught the attention of Drew Gulak, who seems likely to be in the newcomer’s corner.
And speaking of rookies making an impact, Valkyria has already scored wins over the likes of Tatum Paxley and Lash Legend.
She’ll look to keep rolling against Palmer, who recently picked up her first career victory against Lola Vice on NXT Level Up.
Still undefeated after posting singles wins against Dante Chen and Oro Mensah on WWE’s newest brand, Thorpe receives arguably his toughest test when he takes on the menacing Quinn, who won’t hesitate to punish the newcomer with vicious strikes or outright break the rules to claim a win.
Check out an awesome episode of NXT Level Up, streaming Friday at 10/9 C on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else!
