NXT Deadline Iron Survivor Challenge Contestants Named

Multiple contestants have been announced for the debuting match stipulation the Iron Survivor Challenge, which will be taking place at the NXT Deadline Premium Live Event.

The announcements were made on the November 29th edition of NXT, with Shawn Michaels announcing that Roxanne Perez, Cora Jade, Zoey Stark and Kiana James are the first 4 entrants confirmed for the women’s match. The final entrant will be determined in a Triple Threat match that will see Fallon Henley, Wendy Choo and Indi Hartwell fight for the final spot. The winner will become the new number one contender for the NXT Women’s Championship.

The announced entrants for the men’s match were JD McDonagh, Joe Gacy, Carmelo Hayes and Grayson Waller. A Triple Threat wildcard match will determine the 5th entrant. The winner of the match at NXT Deadline will become the new number one contender to the NXT Championship.

Shawn Michaels announced the new match concept on the November 15th edition of NXT. The rules of the match are as follows:

  • Five Superstars will compete in this unique 25-minute match as they battle each other and the clock. 
  • Two Superstars will start the match, and every five minutes a new Superstar will enter the match until all five are in the ring. 
  • The goal is to have the most falls when the clock hits 25 minutes. 
  • Falls can be won at any time via pinfall, submission, or disqualification. 
  • When a Superstar scores a fall, they will earn one point. 
  • However, when a Superstar loses a fall, that Superstar must pay the penalty. They are forced out of the ring and into a penalty box for 90 seconds. 
  • Once the 90 seconds are up, the Superstar can re-enter the match. 
  • The Superstar who has scored the most falls when the clock hits 25 minutes will be named the Iron Survivor and become the No. 1 Contender to the NXT Championship and NXT Women’s Championship, respectively.
