Roxanne Perez Wins NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament

Roxanne Perez is the winner of the first ever NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament. Perez won the inaugural contest on the June 7th edition of NXT.

Perez defeated Tiffany Stratton in the final match of the tournament via pinfall with the use of the Pop Rox finisher. Following the victory, Cora Jade would come to the ring to celebrate with her friend and presented the trophy to Roxanne Perez. This victory means that Perez will receive a future opportunity at the NXT Women’s Championship at some point in the future.

Following the victory, Toxic Attraction would make their way into the ring. NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose would mock the victory, stating that Perez would not be able to defeat her for the title. A brawl would break out between Toxic Attraction and the trio of Perez, Jade and Idi Hartwell. The Champions were thrown out of the ring as the segment drew to a close.

Roxanne Perez would defeat Kiana James in the opening round and Lash Legend in the semi-finals to advance to the final match. Tiffany Stratton was inserted into the tournament as a replacement for the injured Nikkita Lyons in the semi-finals, and would defeat Fallon Henley to face Perez in the finals.
