Roxanne Perez’s resurgence in the NXT Women’s Championship title picture has sparked excitement among fans, as she gears up to challenge Lyra Valkyria at NXT Stand And Deliver this Friday with a renewed attitude.

According to insights from Fightful Select’s Corey Brennan, Perez’s trajectory within WWE is generating significant buzz behind the scenes. Despite numerous appearances on the main roster, including notable showings in back-to-back Royal Rumble matches in 2023 and 2024, Perez’s ascent has been steadily gaining momentum. Brennan reports that Perez has left a lasting impression on major officials with each main roster appearance, leading to speculation that her transition to the main roster is inevitable.

While many fans eagerly anticipate Perez’s elevation to the main roster, sources within NXT reveal a desire for her to remain on the brand for the time being. This decision stems from a desire to further develop Perez’s compelling new heel persona, which has garnered widespread acclaim from officials. In fact, there are even voices advocating for Perez to capture the NXT Women’s Championship at Friday’s Stand And Deliver event.

Addressing speculation surrounding Perez’s role in the absence of her former tag team partner and rival Cora Jade, who has been sidelined with a torn ACL, NXT insiders clarify that plans for Perez’s character evolution were in motion prior to Jade’s injury. While the two were initially slated to reunite as heels, Perez has seamlessly transitioned into her new persona, earning praise for her professionalism and dedication to her craft.


Described as “professional beyond her years” by one NXT source, Perez’s potential appears limitless at just 22 years old. As she continues to captivate audiences with her in-ring prowess and magnetic presence, Perez’s journey in WWE promises to be one of continued growth and success.
