Myles Borne to debut on WWE NXT Level Up

Borne will make his televised debut against Guru Raaj.

This week's edition of Level Up will feature the televised in-ring debut of a new member of the NXT roster.

WWE has announced that Myles Borne (real name David Bostian) will make his televised debut against Guru Raaj on NXT Level Up this Friday night. Borne has a background in amateur wrestling and powerlifting.

Borne was part of the class of recruits who reported to the WWE Performance Center this March. WWE wrote when he signed with the company: "Twenty-three-year-old David Bostian of Wilmington, N.C., has been a folkstyle wrestler for 16 years while simultaneously training as a powerlifter."

When the March Performance Center class was announced, Borne drew attention on social media for looking like Randy Orton.

WWE filed a trademark for "Myles Borne" on June 8. He made his first appearance for NXT when the brand return to running house shows in Florida last weekend. Borne took part in a house show match that was interrupted by Von Wagner.

NXT Level Up airs on Peacock/WWE Network at 10 p.m. Eastern time on Fridays. Here's the full lineup for this week's episode:

  • Ivy Nile vs. Elektra Lopez
  • Thea Hail vs. Arianna Grace
  • Guru Raaj vs. Myles Borne
