Five new Superstars – Pretty Deadly, Levi Muir, Candy Floss and Dani Luna – have joined the NXT UK roster. They will join other NXT UK Superstars in training at WWE’s United Kingdom Performance Center in North London.

Pretty Deadly, the confident tag team of Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley, have impressed in recent showings on NXT UK television, taking on the likes of The Hunt and Kenny Williams & Amir Jordan.

The former 2-time IPW:UK Tag Team Champions wrestled their first NXT UK matched in February 2019 during Coventry tapings. They have worked for Frontline Wrestling, SOUL, PROGRESS, REACH, Pro Wrestling Ambush, Rev Pro, and many more.

Sugary-sweet 20-year-old grappler Candy Floss has plenty of experience across Europe and Japan. In her previous sojourns on NXT UK, the pink-haired Superstar has battled competitors like Rhea Ripley, Kay Lee Ray and Toni Storm.

Here is how Candy Floss describes her path in wrestling: “My journey of becoming a wrestler started in a railway arch in Brixton. The training school was known as the ProJo (Progress Wrestling School), where classes would take place nearly every day! The 15-year-old me would spend so many hours at the ProJo, learning about the sport. I would be there nearly every single day that it got to a point where the ProJo felt like another home.

“Since I was 11 years old my dream was to be a wrestler. I made my debut in June 2016, I got injured at training so I was out for 4 months. After my injury healed, I started to perform regularly on shows in October 2016. Since then, I’ve been on shows all across the United Kingdom and overseas. At the age of 18, I travelled to Japan on my own and wrestled and trained for Stardom for 7 weeks.”

Now 20, Fight Forever Women’s World Champion has worked her craft on PROGRESS, IPW:UK, Pro Wrestling EVE, Riptide, ATTACK, Tidal, among many others. Her first NXT UK match was taped in Plymouth in October 2018, she has since regularly appeared on the show.

Levi Muir is a British powerlifting champion-turned-Superstar with plenty of in-ring experience in the UK, including promotions like PROGRESS.

Muir is the only one who has never wrestled on NXT UK yet.

Camden native Dani Luna comes to NXT UK with several years of in-ring experience across the United Kingdom in promotions like PROGRESS, and has crossed paths with the likes of Ripley, Storm, Nina Samuels, Piper Niven and Meiko Satomura.

At 20, Luna is at the same time the Celtic Crown Women’s Champion, Maiden Of Chaos Champion, and the SOUL Women’s Champion. She has worked for Ironfist, ATTACK, IPW: UK, Fight Club: Pro, Schadenfreude & Friends, Rev Pro, PROGRESS and Fierce Females, to quote a few. Her first NXT UK match took place at Download Festival in June 2019.
