Jacob Fatu Wins MLW National Openweight Title, Lineup For WWE NXT Level Up



Jacob Fatu dethroned John Hennigan to win the MLW National Openweight Championship on Thursday’s episode of MLW Fusion.

Fatu nailed Hennigan with a superkick, a pop-up Samoan drop, and a double jump moonsault for the win. The title match was taped at MLW ‘War Chamber’ on April 6th.

Fatu ends Hennigan’s run at 89 days. Hennigan won the MLW National Openweight Title from Davey Richards at MLW ‘Blood and Thunder’ this past January.

Hennigan has reportedly signed with AEW which explains why he dropped the title on Thursday night.

You can check out some highlights from the match below:

WWE has announced the lineup for this week’s episode of NXT Level Up, which airs Friday night on Peacock. You can check out the lineup and official preview for the show below:

* Ivy Nile vs. Jacy Jayne

* Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo vs. Kale Dixon

* Tavion Heights vs. Luca Crusifino

Nile to clash with Jayne on NXT Level Up
An amazing edition of NXT Level Up will feature Ivy Nile battling Jacy Jayne in a heated main event clash, Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo tangling with Kale Dixon, and Tavion Heights engaging Luca Crusifino in a slugfest.

Still undefeated on NXT Level Up, The Pitbull of Diamond Mine puts her unblemished record on the line against Jayne, who was recently defeated by her former best friend Gigi Dolin in a jaw-dropping Weaponized Steel Cage Match.

Can the coldblooded Jayne finally deal Nile her first loss, or will she be the latest Superstar to feel the agony of Nile’s Dragon Sleeper?

Having won seven straight bouts on WWE’s newest brand, The Underboss of the Family continues his quest to “find the rat” for his boss Tony D’Angelo, though he’ll need to be focused when he’s opposed by Dixon.

Already one of the most despised Superstars in the NXT Arena, Dixon recently claimed his first career win against Quincy Elliott and figures to stoop to any low to gain the upper hand.

And speaking of Superstars that are loathed by the NXT Arena, Crusifino is looking for his third consecutive win against Heights, a newcomer with an impressive amateur background.

Check out an awesome episode of NXT Level Up, streaming Friday at 10/9 C on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else!
