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 Karmen Petrovic vs. Brinley Reece and a tag team bout featuring Hank Walker and Tank Ledger.

Below is the preview for this episode:

An amazing episode of NXT Level Up will feature Hank Walker and Tank Ledger brawling with Tyson Dupont and Tyriek Igwe in a hard-hitting tag bout, as well as Karmen Petrovic tangling with Brinley Reece.

Hank and Tank defeated their equally rugged opponents in their first matchup on the Feb. 2 edition of NXT Level Up in a slugfest that could have gone either way, and the two tandems agreed to make it a best-of-three while playing dominoes.

Do Hank and Tank have their frenemies’ number, or will Igwe and Dupont force a third match by claiming what would likely be the biggest win of their careers?

Petrovic, an expert martial artist, looks to put those skills to good use when she tangles with the energetic Reece as each competitor eyes a statement victory.

Check out an incredible edition of NXT Level Up, streaming Friday at 10/9 C on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else!
