Brand New WWE Match Type Announced WWE

On tonight’s edition of WWE NXT (November 15) Shawn Michaels made a major announcement related to the upcoming premium live event, NXT Deadline.

Announcing a major new match format for the show, Shawn Michaels appeared in a pre-taped segment to explain the details.

At NXT Deadline a new match for WWE will debut called the Iron Survivor Challenge.

WWE announced the official rules as follows:

Five superstars will compete in this unique 25-minute Match as they battle each other and the clock.

Two superstars will start the match and every five minutes a new superstar will enter the match until all five are in the ring.

The goal is to have the most falls when the clock hits 25 minutes.

Falls can be won at any time via pinfall, submission or disqualification.

When a superstar scores a fall they will earn one point.

However, when a superstar loses a fall, that superstar must pay the penalty. They are forced out of the ring and into a penalty box for 90 seconds.

Once the 90 seconds are up, the superstar can re-enter the match.

The superstar who has scored the most falls when the clock hits 25 minutes will be named the Iron Survivor and become the No. 1 Contender for the NXT Championship and NXT Women’s Championship respectively

The inaugural editions of the Iron Survivor Challenges are set to occur next month at the NXT premium live event, NXT Deadline.

With NXT Deadline set to kick off on December 10, 2022 it notably shares the day with another long-length wrestling event.

Also set for December 10 is Ring Of Honor’s pay-per-view, Final Battle although indications are that the events will not run concurrently.
