On a star-studded edition of 205 Live, Ember Moon comes to the purple brand to tangle with Cora Jade, Xyon Quinn attempts to continue his hot streak against Oney Lorcan, and Ikemen Jiro takes on Malik Blade.
Moon recently revealed that she’s seeking a different approach after losing four consecutive matches, while the 20-year-old Jade is in search of an early career-defining victory at the expense of the veteran.
Will the former NXT Women’s Champion employ a win-at-all-costs strategy to break out of her funk, and will it be enough to defeat the upstart?
Quinn has turned heads ever since bursting onto the scene in NXT 2.0 and 205 Live, racking up impressive victories against the likes of Boa and Andre Chase.
The newcomer is about to receive what is arguably his toughest test to date, however, as he’ll match wits and fists with Lorcan, a former NXT Tag Team Champion. Having recently been betrayed by Pete Dunne and Ridge Holland, the no-nonsense brawler is all but certain to be in a foul mood and looking to take out his frustrations on the rookie.
Plus, after welcoming everyone to the “Ike-Mansion” on NXT earlier this week, the eccentric Jiro will seek his third win in his last four matches when he collides with Blade. In his first match in WWE, Blade came up short against Boa on NXT 2.0, but the acrobatic Superstar nevertheless made a strong impression on the WWE Universe, doling out rapid-fire kicks and landing a picture-perfect crossbody from the top rope to nearly score the upset.
