NXT Deadline kicked off with the Iron Survivor Challenge, a special match type that featured a unique scoring system as well as a new “penalty box” for superstars. In the end, it was Roxanne Perez who would walk out on top.
In the complex match, which essentially saw superstars trying to score pinfalls for points and have the most points in the end, it was Perez who would walk out as the newest #1 Contender for the NXT Women’s Championship. In the end, Perez would hit a Pop Rox on Jade for her second point, and then quickly roll out of the ring after getting hit with a DDT by Jade just as time expired.
