WWE announced that Bron Breakker will defend his NXT Championship against Apollo Crews at the upcoming NXT premium live event.

NXT will be hosting their own premium live event on Peacock on Saturday December 10, featuring a brand new match.

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.”

Next week on NXT, Shawn Michaels will announce which competitors will take part in the new match.
