New concept match to take place at NXT Deadline next month

During Tuesday’s episode of NXT, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels revealed a new match concept called the Iron Survivor Challenge.

Michaels announced there will be men’s and women’s Iron Survivor Challenge Matches taking place at the NXT Deadline premium live event on Saturday, December 10. It was also said the winner of the men’s match will be the No. 1 contender to the NXT Title, currently held by Bron Breakker and the winner of the women’s match will be the No. 1 contender to the NXT Women’s Title, currently held by Mandy Rose.

It was further noted that both matches will consist of five challengers. Two competitors will start, with another competitor entering every five minutes until all five competitors are in the match. The person with the most falls within the 25 minutes is the winner. A pinfall will score a competitor one point, and the NXT Superstar who takes the pinfall has to go into a penalty box for 90 seconds.

Back on November 10, WWE filed the trademark “Iron Survivor Challenge.” NXT Deadline will take place the same day as the ROH Final Battle and UFC 282 pay-per-view events.
