As we reported a few days ago, Shawn Michaels, to replace the War Games now promoted to the Main Roster, announced a new type of match for the next NXT PPV, or NXT Deadl1ne. The Heartbreak Kid announced the debut of the Iron Survivor Challenge.
But what does this new match consist of? The match consists of a 25-minute clash in which a maximum of 5 participants can participate; the first two start the match and after 5 minutes another participant enters. What is the goal of the match? The goal is to accumulate as many points as possible compared to all the other participants by the end of the aforementioned 25 minutes.
The points are obtained for pinning, submission and disqualification: who undergoes one of these three actions, he will be locked in a cage for 90 seconds as a penalty, before re-entering the aforementioned match. At the moment there is no idea who can be the participants of both matches (male and female Iron Survivor Challenge, ed).
HBK will be in the next episode of NXT
As revealed by WWE itself, Shawn Michaels will be featured in the next installment of the gold and white show to reveal the Iron Survivor Challenge participants. The winners of the men's and women's Iron Survivor Challenge will have a chance at the NXT and NXT Women's Championship respectively.
The tweet shared by WWE NXT on Twitter. Not only that: also in the next episode of NXT Roxanne Perez will clash with Indi Hartwell in a 1vs1 match, also given the last turn heel by the latter, which took place in recent weeks.
Finally, Nikkita Lyons, who will no longer partner with Zoey Stark as she has turned her back on him, will fight alongside NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Kayden Carter and Katana Chance against Toxic Attraction in a six women tag team match.
To stay up to date on possible Iron Survivor Challenge participants and the latest NXT news, stay on WorldWrestling.it. Sami Zayn took to social media this evening ahead of WWE NXT 2.0 asking why no one has thanked him for revolutionizing the business with his run on the black and gold brand.
"As this new era of @WWENXT begins, think of all the greats that passed through NXT to this point & how virtually none of them would have ever been there if not for me making NXT a thing. But does anyone say thank you Sami for revolutionizing the business? Of course not. Poor me," Sami Zayn tweeted.
