NXT Level Up results: May 13, 2022
Sanga def. Dante Chen
Dante Chen looked to take control of his much larger opponent by using his speed to avoid an attempted powerslam, but Sanga eventually got his massive hands on the Singaporean Superstar and chopped him down with a barrage of kicks and a sidewalk slam before hanging him up in the ropes.
After pummeling Chen with an uppercut and an elbow through the ropes, Sanga continued to dish out punishment with a smile on his face. Chen caught Sanga by surprise with a stunner to create some space, staying on top of the big man with a DDT and a big boot to take Sanga off his feet for a near fall.
Chen kept his foot on the gas with a pair of dropkicks, but Sanga bounced back off the ropes to flip Chen end-over-end with a massive clothesline before nearly chokeslamming him through the mat to record the win.
Elektra Lopez def. Thea Hail
Up-and-comer Thea Hail showed no fear going after Elektra Lopez, but she could not compete with the power of La Madrina as the matriarch of Legado del Fantasma absorbed the young Superstar’s trio of dropkicks before planting Hail with a swinging side slam.
Lopez continued to batter the rookie with a series of stomps and submission holds focusing on Hail’s arm. To the shock of La Madrina, Hail managed to power out of the submission attempt by hoisting Lopez onto her shoulder and flipping her off onto the mat before dropping Lopez with a flurry of clubbing blows.
Hail looked to keep the momentum going with a dropkick, but the veteran instincts of Lopez kicked in as she avoided the blow and picked up Hail for a unique sit-down powerbomb and the 1-2-3.
Trick Williams def. Javier Bernal
Bolstered by the presence of Carmelo Hayes at ringside, Trick Williams showcased his athletic ability while tossing Javier Bernal across the ring in the opening moments of the match.
Bernal tried to keep Williams under control with a headlock, but the former Division I football star rallied after a flurry of arm drags to catch Bernal with a dropkick. Williams clobbered Bernal with an uppercut and a monstrous clothesline followed closely by a powerslam and a devastating kick for a pair of near falls.
Bernal attempted to quell Williams’ momentum with a flurry of offense capped off by an inverted atomic drop and a flying clothesline, but Williams fought out of a Russian Leg Sweep to catch Bernal with a monstrous big boot to earn the pinfall victory.
