NXT Level Up 6/3/2022


Fallon Henley defeated Brooklyn Barlow

Thumbs In The Middle Pointing Down

This match wasn't great, but both women displayed a lot of ring presence. Barlow is green, and that showed. Henley was charismatic in her delivery, even through the awkward moments.

The match opened with a clumsy wrestling sequence that turned into a brief pin exchange. After a test of strength, Barlow tried scoring a submission with a unique standing neck crank. Once she escaped the hold, Henley lept into offense, landing a lariat, bulldog, and single-leg running knee to close.



Tatum Paxley defeated Sloane Jacobs

Thumbs Down

I wish I knew why all of these matches feature so much empty mat wrestling. Paxley has one of the most exciting movesets I've seen on Level Up, but it's wasted on matches made up mostly of rest holds.


Edris Enofe and Malik Blade defeated Dante Chen and Javier Bernal

**1/4

Thumbs Up

This was a pretty by-the-numbers tag match. For what it's worth, the crowd was into Enofe, especially after the hot tag.

Blade and Enofe worked together to hit Bernal with an elevated leg cutter. After landing the tandem finish, Enofe pinned Bernal to win the match.

Once the smoke cleared, both teams shook hands.
