New WWE NXT Women’s Champion To Be Crowned In Stand & Deliver Ladder Match?, Shawn Michaels Issues Statement on Roxanne Perez
A Ladder Match for the WWE NXT Women’s Title has been announced for NXT Stand & Deliver.
As noted, NXT Roadblock ended last Tuesday with NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez collapsing after her title defense over Meiko Satomura. WWE noted after the injury angle that Perez was hospitalized for further evaluation, but then released and was resting at home.
In an update, WWE Hall of Famer & Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels took to Twitter this evening to announce that Perez’s health is still in question, so he may have to crown a new champion at Stand & Deliver.
Michaels announced that tonight’s NXT will feature qualifying matches to determine who will be in the Ladder Match at Stand & Deliver. There’s no word yet on who will be in those qualifiers.
It’s likely that Perez will be “cleared” in time to compete at Stand & Deliver, and will then defend her title in the Ladder Match.
The only other confirmed matches for Stand & Deliver as of this writing are Johnny Gargano vs. Grayson Waller, and Carmelo Hayes vs. NXT Champion Bron Breakker.
Below is the updated line-up for tonight’s NXT, along with the full tweets from Michaels:
* Qualifying matches for Stand & Deliver Ladder Match for the NXT Women’s Title
* Stand & Deliver contract signing for Carmelo Hayes vs. NXT Champion Bron Breakker
* Dabba-Kato vs. Apollo Crews
* Johnny Gargano addresses his NXT return and Stand & Deliver match with Grayson Waller
* NXT Tag Team Champions Gallus defends against Pretty Deadly
* NXT North American Champion Wes Lee defends in another Open Challenge
Starting tonight there will be a series of qualifying matches with the winners advancing to Stand and Deliver to compete to become the NXT Women’s Champion in a Ladder Match. https://t.co/HLwehrqJVf
