WWE NXT Level Up, also known as NXT Level Up (stylized as NXT LVL UP), is a professional wrestling streaming television program. It is produced by the American professional wrestling promotion WWE, featuring performers from the promotion's NXT brand division. It airs on Fridays at 10 pm Eastern Time on Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network internationally. The program features matches taped either before or after the preceding episode of NXT. The show premiered on February 18, 2022, as a replacement for 205 Live.
In October 2019, WWE's 205 Live brand merged under the NXT brand with the 205 Live streaming television show becoming a supplementary show of NXT. On February 15, 2022, WWE announced that 205 Live would be replaced by a new show called NXT Level Up, which would stream in 205 Live's former Friday night slot at 10 pm Eastern Time on Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network in international markets. The show premiered on February 18, 2022. The commentators for the show are Sudu Shah and Byron Saxton, and the ring announcers are Alicia Taylor and Kelly Kincaid. In the main event of the inaugural episode, Edris Enofé defeated Kushida.
