Real Concern In WWE Over Roxanne Perez’s Health

Roxanne Perez collapses NXT

After Roxanne Perez Perez retained her title against former NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura recently she collapsed in the ring and was eventually placed on a stretcher before being taken away in an ambulance.

While the collapse is believed to be part of an ongoing storyline that has long-time fans reminded of a similar situation Shawn Michaels went through in the mid-nineties, a new report suggests things might be more complicated than that.

Speaking on On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that there is a worry surrounding Roxanne Perez but at the moment what is known about it is very vague:

“The reason it’s so vague is because the actual situation really is so vague, they actually don’t know what exactly is going on. So until they do, they kind of have to go in there with, ‘Well, we don’t know if she’s stripped (of the title)’. Just a whole bunch of things going on.

“What I was told was it’s a vague situation in the sense that, hopefully there’s nothing wrong, but there might be.

“She didn’t faint after the match, that was a cover story for the fact that something may or may not be going on, and they don’t know exactly, so therefore they did the Shawn Michaels angle. I don’t know what it is, I was just told that it’s a cover story for something, and they don’t know exactly what it is so therefore it’s a vague story, because the actual situation is vague.”

In light of Roxanne Perez’s current status, a ladder match will take place at NXT Stand and Deliver to potentially crown a new NXT Women’s Champion.
