WWE aired the first episode of NXT: Level Up last month. The show airs every Friday and showcases matches and segments between up-and-coming talent. The company rebranded 205 Live into Level Up.

WWE recently taped the March 11th edition of Level Up. Diamond Mine’s Ivy Nile took on Brooklyn Barlow in one of the matches taped for the show. The episode will air this Friday at 10 pm ET.

For those who don’t know, Brooklyn is a Strongman as well as 3x NQ NPC Bikini competitor. The real-life Brooke Vawter participated in the WWE tryouts held in Las Vegas last year during the SummerSlam week.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported at the time that WWE offered contracts to more than a dozen people who took part in the Las Vegas tryouts. One of the participants was Brooke.

WWE is no longer looking to hire independent wrestlers and is focusing on young people who have little to no wrestling background. The new recruits will now get to showcase their skills on Level Up.
