On this week’s episode of NXT was the Roadblock edition with huge stakes. This episode determined who would go on to Stand & Deliver as NXT Women’s Champion. The champion Roxanne Perez took on her biggest competition, the Final Boss – Meiko Satomura.
The match took place in the main event and the broadcast stayed with the women until we saw a finish. Perez would not go down throughout the match no matter what Satomura threw at her and it would be a final counter after one of many kicks that did Satomura in. Perez ducked under the final kick and rolled back into a pin to get the win and retain her title.
After the match though, it left the crowd stunned. Satomura went and presented Perez with the title belt and as she was congratulating her, Perez fell face-first into the mat. This caused great concern from everyone in the building. Referees, medical, Booker T, and Shawn Michaels came to the aid of Perez. She was stretchered out of the arena. NXT posted on social media that Perez was kept overnight in the hospital for observation and continued testing.
Also on Roadblock was a heated match between former Toxic Attraction partners Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne. Over the past month, the duo has broken up and shown their animosity toward each other in a big way. Dolin picked up the win but post-match Jayne wasn’t finished unleashing her attack. She would continue to pummel Dolin before going out of the ring to get the steel chair she brought out earlier in the match. She placed the chair around the neck of Dolin and went to go up top in the corner. The referees came out from the back to stop her and removed the chair from Dolin. Jayne was kept back which hints that this feud is far from over.
Thea Hail also conquered her fear and came face-to-face with Ava outside the ring, however, inside the ring Andrea Chase lost once again to Joe Gacy.
Two women on the show had vignettes saying they were heading towards the NXT Women’s Championship regardless if Perez would retain or Satomura would win. It was Tiffany Stratton opening the show and a later vignette from Lyra Valkyria.
The team of Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn had a promo video charging by the moonlight and look forward to next week after a Full Moon ritual. They continue to target the tag team division.
Speaking of the tag team division. There still show some hesitancy from Fallon Henley against her tag team partner and champion Kiana James. James received some roses but seemingly was hiding the message card. Briggs assumed the roses from Jensen but Jensen didn’t seem to know where the roses came from despite him still being excited for a date with James later in the night.
