NXT Level Up results: June 24, 2022
Quincy Elliott def. Bryson Montana
You need to be ready to back up your words when you proclaim, “Forget about creating the moment. I am the moment.”
Those were the sentiments shared by Quincy Elliott prior to his clash with the equally brash Bryson Montana, who enjoyed a pre-match flexing session before claiming the upper hand on his much larger adversary by taking him down with a stiff clothesline and a series of clubbing blows to the back.
A resilient Elliott fired back with a flying reverse elbow to the jaw and a unique swinging splash from the middle rope to earn his first career win.
Kiana James def. Brooklyn Barlow
Quincy Elliott wouldn’t be the only Superstar to claim their first win, as the energetic Brooklyn Barlow and the arrogant Kiana James locked horns while each seeking victory No. 1.
James, who left her desk job to pursue sports-entertainment superstardom, certainly wasn’t lacking in confidence, as she started the match with a test of strength while trash-talking her opponent. Moments later, she continued to berate Barlow after planting her with a picture-perfect body slam.
Barlow showed impressive athleticism by going sky high to nail James with a dropkick, but James recovered and sealed the victory by hoisting Barlow into the air and dropping her face-first into her knee.
Ikemen Jiro def. Ru Feng
Going 2-0 against an accomplished striker such as Ru Feng is no easy task, but the tie dye jacket-clad Ikemen Jiro passed with flying colors. Pun intended.
The no-nonsense Feng shrugged off Jiro’s early match antics, throwing him face-first into the canvas and stomping away at Jiro’s knee to slow the pace to his liking.
With the WWE Universe chanting his name, Jiro eventually got back on track, sending Feng flying across the ring with a monkey flip, landing a series of Jacket Punches and hitting a match-clinching Ikemen Slash.
