Production

Background

On October 15, 2022, the American professional wrestling promotion WWE filed to trademark the name "NXT Deadline" for their developmental brand, NXT. During a media conference on October 21 the night before NXT Halloween Havoc, WWE executive Shawn Michaels confirmed that NXT's next livestreaming event would be Deadline. It was scheduled to be held on Saturday, December 10 at NXT's home venue, the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, and will air on WWE's livestreaming platforms Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network in international markets. Deadline replaced NXT WarGames as the brand's December event, after the WarGames concept was moved to the main roster for the 2022 Survivor Series for the Raw and SmackDown brands. The event will be held on the same day as Ring of Honor's Final Battle and UFC 282.[1][2][3]

Storylines

NXT Deadline will include several matches. The matches result from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portray heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters to build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results are predetermined by WWE's writers on the NXT brand, while storylines are produced on the weekly television program, NXT, and the supplementary online streaming show Level Up.[4][5]

On the November 15 episode of NXT, WWE executive Shawn Michaels announced a new match-type for WWE called the Iron Survivor Challenge, which would occur at Deadline, with one each for the men and women. The rules are as follows:

  • Two wrestlers start the match and every five minutes another wrestler enters until all five participants are present.
  • After the last wrestler enters, there is a predetermined time limit.
  • Each time a wrestler scores a pinfall, submission, or being the victim of a disqualification, they gain a point.
  • A wrestler who is pinned, submitted, or is disqualified goes into a penalty box for 90 seconds.
  • The winner of the match is the wrestler who scores the most falls at the end of the time limit.
  • The winners of the men's and women's matches become the #1 contenders for the NXT Championship and NXT Women's Championship, respectively.[6]

The participants for both the men's and women's Iron Survivor Challenge will be revealed on the November 29 episode of NXT.[7]

On the November 15 episode of NXT, Apollo Crews warned NXT Champion Bron Breakker that his goal was to become champion. Later, after Crews' match, Breakker appeared to confront him.[6] The following week, Breakker was scheduled to defend the NXT Championship against Crews at Deadline.[7]
