WWE Gives Update On Roxanne Perez Following Collapse At NXT Roadblock

Roxanne Perez

NXT Roadblock went off the air with Roxanne Perez being taken away in an ambulance as Shawn Michaels and Booker T looked on.

In the main event of the show, Perez put her NXT Women’s Title on the line against Meiko Satomura.

For much of the bout, it was Satomura who made her experience count, remaining in complete control, however, Perez’s spirit continued to carry her through. At one stage only the bottom rope saved her from losing her title after being hit with a Scorpion Kick on the outside.

Despite taking so much punishment the determined Perez hung on and rolled up Satomura to claim an unlikely win.

After the match, Satomura raised Perez’s hand but the champion collapsed to the mat. She was immediately tended to by officials and doctors while both Shawn Michaels and Booker T got into the ring to check on her.

Posting on social media, WWE has now shared an update on the young star’s condition. The short statement said that Perez has been released from the hospital and is resting at home.

It should be noted that the incident is part of a storyline with WWE widely sharing footage of Perez collapsing and undergoing treatment on social media.

Roxanne Perez Remains NXT Women’s Champion

Roxanne Perez is one of the fastest-rising stars in all of WWE having captured championship gold aged just 21. After being trained by Booker T, Perez had a short spell with Ring of Honor before signing with WWE in March 2022.

Perez won the NXT Women’s Title on the December 13th episode of the show defeating Many Rose. The former champion was released by WWE just 24 hours later due to content she was posting on her subscription website.
