Roxanne Perez collapses live during NXT: truth or storyline?
by LORENZO CIOTTI | VIEW 388
During the last episode of NXT, which was a special episode called NXT Roadblock, in the card we found a really special and particular match, because the NXT champion Roxanne Perez went up against the legend Meiko Satomura, a beautiful match between two different generations of wrestlers, as reported by our colleagues of Wrestling World.
Meiko being a legend and having a very strong style, the match was very exhausting for the young Perez, who in the end managed to keep her belt firmly on her waist, but found herself collapsing to the mat as soon as it was all over, with Satomura immediately becoming concerned for her by inviting doctors and WWE personnel to show up in the ring to help her.
When the show went off the air, Shawn Michaels asked the medical staff a few questions to find out how the girl was doing, helping everyone carry the gurney to the ambulance that was waiting for them. In a social update, WWE announced that Perez would be taken to the hospital and held there overnight to be monitored and undergo some tests.
For now it is not known whether it is in the storyline or not, but it is very possible that it is so since WWE rarely stops programming when something so serious happens by showing it to the public, and the scene also reminded a lot of that of several years earlier between Shawn Michaels and Owen Hart.
Interviewed in December 2022 by Corey Grave on WWE After The Bell, Roxanne Perez spoke about her journey in professional wrestling: "Since I was 10 I have wanted to be in WWE one day. I don't know how or why, but I knew it would happen.
I I started out in Indy thinking that if I stood out properly, WWE could call me in. So I did everything I could to make sure that could happen. I think winning the Ring of Honor title was just surreal. Obviously my biggest dream was to become a champion in WWE.
Becoming the first of Ring of Honor at 19, however, something clicked in me that made me realize that all my aspirations were truly possible. I still have many other goals in my career but just achieving the first one was fantastic and I want to continue on this path."
