WWE is on the road to WrestleMania, and they also need to get things in order for all the other shows on the schedule. NXT Level Up recently saw a departure as Sudu Shah left, but it didn’t take them long to fill that slot.
According to a report from Fightful’s paywall, WWE hired Blake Chadwick for a role on NXT Level Up. His new WWE name will be Blake Howard.
Blake Howard will join Byron Saxton on NXT Level Up, which airs after SmackDown every Friday night. Howard has previous experience with Wrestlecade, VCW, Ring Warriors, Combat Fights Unlimited, Camp Leapfrog, and West Coast Wrestling Connection.
Fightful Select has confirmed that WWE has hired independent commentator Blake Chadwick, and he officially started with the company this week. We’re told that his new WWE name is Blake Howard. He filmed with the company on Tuesday, and will debut on the Friday episode of NXT LVL UP. He’ll be joined by Byron Saxton.
Blake Howard has done work with WrestleCade, Ring Warriors, West Coast Wrestling Connection, Combat Fights Unlimited, Camp Leapfrog, and VCW, working for about a decade.
We will have to see how Blake Howard does in his new job. WWE is a different game than his previous ventures in pro wrestling, but he will also have great people to work with as Triple H still runs the show.
