NXT Deadline was a significant Premium Live Event for NXT for a variety of reasons. It featured the first ever Iron Survivor Challenge for both men and women. It seems one particular talent doesn’t ever want to take part in another Iron Survivor match.

Roxanne Perez faced off against Kiana James, Cora Jade, Indi Hartwell, and Zoey Stark in the Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge at NXT Deadline. Against all odds, Perez managed to win the match.

While speaking during the post-NXT Deadline press conference, Shawn Michaels revealed that one participant in the women’s match told him she never wants to be part of another Iron Survivor Challenge. He did not name-drop the star who told him that.


I had one person come up to me, who was in the match, and say “Man that was one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of. Don’t ever put me in one of those again.

We will have to wait and see how Roxanne Perez will be booked in the coming weeks, as her stock certainly increased after NXT Deadline. If anything, the Iron Survivor Challenge match was certainly one to remember.
