A spoiler has emerged on the result of a WWE star’s debut match that was taped last night (May 9) and will air later this week.
As we covered last night, Lea Mitchell wrestled her first match for NXT Level Up that airs on the WWE Network after SmackDown this coming Friday.
Mitchell was a superstar for the Michigan State gymnastics team from 2018-2022 including leading the Spartans to NCAA Regionals in 2022.
She signed with WWE after the SummerSlam 2022 tryouts.
Under the ring name Kelani Jordan, she worked a match with Wendy Choo for this week’s Level Up, and PWInsider has provided spoilers on the results for the show.
Last warning, don’t continue reading this if you don’t want to see the Level Up results for this week before the show airs on Friday.
The results were as follows:
Dante Chen def. Tavion Heights
Wendy Choo def. Kelani Jordan
Edris Enofe & Malik Blade def. Bronco Nima & Lucien Price
Before her match with Choo, Jordan/Mitchell had worked several matches at NXT house shows, and has also appeared on NXT TV, but only as an unidentified background character like a lot of the yet-to-debut trainees do.
In fact, the most recent of those appearances was actually last night during a Chase U backstage segment.
Full results from the May 9 NXT were as follows:
Tiffany Stratton def. Gigi Dolin in the NXT Women’s Championship tournament
Mark Coffey & Wolfgang def. The Dyad to retain the NXT Tag Team Championship after distractions on the outside including a brawl between Ava and Ivy Nile
Duke Hudson def. Javier Bernal
Eddy Thorpe def. Damon Kemp
Ilja Dragunov def. Dijak via DQ when Dijak attacked Dragunov with a steel chair and continued the attack post-match
Charlie Dempsey w/Drew Gulak def. Tyler Bate w/Wes Lee after Joe Gacy came out and punched Bate
Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen def. Hank Walker & Tank Ledger
Lyra Valkyria def. Kiana James in the NXT Women’s Championship tournament
Bron Breakker def. Trick Williams, then continued to attack Williams post-match before Carmelo Hayes tried to make the save, but Breakker laid him out as well
