The in-ring debut of new NXT talent Malik Blade has been officially announced for tonight’s episode of WWE 205 Live.
Malik Blade is the new WWE name for Josh Dawkins, who is the son of NBA legend Darryl Dawkins, and was trained by D-Von Dudley.
Blade was actually only uneviled as a new WWE signing on August 30, in the same group of signees as Bobby Steveson (Gable Steveson’s brother) and Joseph Fatu (the Usos’ brother).
On tonight’s 205 Live, Blade faces a more established name in Boa.
Another match confirmed for tonight’s show is Amari Miller vs Valentina Feroz, both of whom picked up wins on 205 Live in recent weeks – Miller over Cora Jade, and Feroz over Katrina Cortez
Also, DID SOMEBODY SAY ANDRE CHASE?????, because Chase is set for action against Trey Baxter in what will presumably be the show’s main event.
205 Live airs on Peacock/WWE Network at 10pm ET and is available on demand thereafter. The show was taped before NXT aired this past Tuesday.
