Roxanne Perez ended Mandy Rose’s year plus reign as champion on December 13th, becoming NXT Women’s Champion for the first time in her career.
Following a victory in the Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge at the NXT Deadline Premium Live Event, Perez earned the right to be the next number one contender to the title. Roxanne Perez opened the show, but was blindsided by the now former champion.
The match took place in the main event of the December 13th show. Perez won the match by hitting Pop Roxx onto Rose.
While this is Perez’s first reign as NXT Women’s Champion, this is not her first time holding gold in the promotion. Perez previously won the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships with Cora Jade as her partner. Jade would shockingly turn on her best friend when Perez previously faced Rose for the championship.
