Duke Hudson def. Myles Borne
Basking in his own presence and looking down his nose at the WWE Universe from the moment he stepped through the curtains, Duke Hudson appeared thoroughly unimpressed with his opponent when Myles Borne joined him in the ring.
After Hudson started the fight with a scoop slam before chucking Borne across the ring, he perhaps got a little too arrogant for his own good, especially when Borne caught him with an impressive belly-to-belly suplex that shook the ring and a crossbody.
The towering Aussie immediately struck back, flooring Borne with a big boot to improve to 3-0 on NXT Level Up.
Arianna Grace def. Erica Yan
While many have questioned her sincerity, Arianna Grace swears that she wants to bring world peace by continuing her ascent on NXT 2.0 and NXT Level Up.
Erica Yan, who received a warm welcome from the NXT Universe, got off to a strong start by mocking her self-absorbed opponent and nearly getting the win with a nifty rollup prior to slamming Grace face-first into the mat.
Grace turned the tide when she dodged her hard-charging opponent, resulting in a nasty fall for Yan. Seconds later, Grace hoisted Yan into a fireman’s carry position and planted her back-first to seal the win.
Xyon Quinn def. Dante Chen
A clash of two of the most fearsome strikers in WWE didn’t disappoint, as Xyon Quinn and Dante Chen pulverized one another from bell to bell.
Though Chen and Quinn had previously been friends, Chen is also keenly aware of Quinn’s recent attitude shift, and he came close to knocking off his hot-tempered foe when he landed a brutal pump kick to the chin for a long two-count.
Quinn, who claims he is spending 18 hours a day training and watching film, was desperate to break his losing streak, and he accomplished the feat by clobbering Chen with a nasty running strike.
