WWE’s Shawn Michaels Reveals Details About NXT Deadline’s New Iron Survivor Challenge

After teasing a big announcement for the upcoming WWE NXT Deadline premium live event, Shawn Michaels made that tease on tonight’s episode of NXT. Michaels would reveal that previous reports were true and that WWE was creating a brand new match type. It’s called the Iron Survivor Challenge, and on NXT Deadline there will be an Iron Survivor Challenge for men and women, each featuring five NXT Superstars to be revealed at a later date. The match has two people starting in the ring with new stars entering every 5 minutes, and whoever scores the most at the end of the 25 minutes wins and gets a title shot at the NXT or NXT Women’s Championship. Below you will find all the details of Michaels.

“There will be two Iron Survivor Challenges on NXT Deadline. One for the men and one for the women. Five superstars will compete in this unique 25 minute match. They will compete against each other and the clock. Two superstars will start the match” A new superstar enters every 5 minutes until all five are in the ring. The goal of the competition is to have the most falls when the clock strikes 25 minutes,” said Michaels.

“Traps can be won at any time via pinfall, submission, or disqualification. If a superstar wins a fall, he earns one point. However, if the superstar loses a fall, he must pay the penalty. He will be in the ring and in the penalty area for 90 seconds. Once the 90 seconds are up, that superstar can re-enter the match, the superstar who has scored the most when the clock strikes 25 minutes will be named the Iron Survivor and become the No. 1 contender to the NXT Championship Michaels said.

As some have noted, the Iron Survivor Challenge has some elements similar to the Championship Scramble and Impact Wrestling’s King and Queen of the Mountain matches. This is also likely a way to add a new match type to NXT’s lineup, as the War Games standby is now on the main Survivor Series roster. Even if they’re still doing War Games at some point, it’s probably a good idea for NXT to have some other specialized and unique matches to call themselves.

That said, there are a lot of rules, so hopefully next month will run smoothly. We’ll have to wait and see, but in the meantime, let us know what you think of the new match in the comments!
