This week's 205 Live will feature the debut of a recent Performance Center signee.

Nikkita Lyons (real name Faith Jefferies) will have her first match for WWE on 205 Live this Friday night, facing Amari Miller. Lyons signed with WWE after taking part in this August's tryouts in Las Vegas. She's a Las Vegas native and is 22 years old.

Lyons formerly wrestled for WOW (Women of Wrestling) using the name "Faith the Lioness." WWE filed a trademark for her new in-ring name earlier this month.

"Eagerly participating in singles matches as well as the tag team ranks, Miller has experienced her ups and downs since joining the revamped 205 Live, and she’ll now seek a crucial win against Lyons," WWE.com wrote. "Primed for her WWE debut, Lyons is undoubtedly hungry for an immediate statement win."

205 Live airs on Peacock/WWE Network at 10 p.m. Eastern time on Fridays. Draco Anthony vs. Dante Chen and Edris Enofe vs. Guru Raaj will also air on this week's episode.
