WWE has officially announced the signing of five new talents for the NXT UK brand. The tag team of Pretty Deadly (Lewis Howley & Sam Stoker), women’s performers Candyfloss and Dani Luna and Levi Muir have all joined the UK branch of NXT.
Candyfloss took part in the women’s only tryout in June of 2019. She’s a name that has been seen in NXT UK in the past as enhancement talent. The young woman’s pink hair matches her sweet personality and usually happy and playful gimmick. Candyfloss has had a run in Japan with Stardom as well as working for some of the top companies in the UK like PROGRESS Wrestling, Riptide Wrestling, and Pro Wrestling: EVE
Former powerlifter Levi Muir has also signed with NXT UK. The personal trainer has spent time training with Lance Storm and is very much the more stereotypical WWE recruit with his athletic background. During his time on the indies, he worked a dark match for PROGRESS but also worked Kamikaze Pro and BPW.
This tag team was just starting to make an impact on the UK indie scene in recent months. The duo joined Do Not Resuscitate and are so far unbeaten in PROGRESS, were making an impact in RevPro and are scheduled to make their Over The Top (OTT) Wrestling debut soon. This tag-team on the rise will add to NXT UK’s tag division and should still be able to spend time in PROGRESS where they have been pushed as a top team.
Another talent just starting to make their mark Dani Luna is the final signee. Luna has worked as enhancement talent in the past for NXT UK and had a career year in 2019. 2019 saw her become a regular with ATTACK! Pro Wrestling and make her debut for PROGRESS Wrestling. She closed out the year by becoming the SOUL Women’s Champion to add to her Maiden Of Chaos and Celtic Crown Women’s titles. Luna was projected to be the replacement for Toni Storm as the biggest women’s star in the UK but now she makes her way to NXT UK to make an impact on the big stage.
