WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels returned to NXT to announce the brand new Iron Survivor Challenge, a new match type that will pit NXT superstars against each other to determine the No. 1 contenders for both the NXT Championship and the NXT Women’s Championship. 

  • 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
