This week on NXT, Shawn Michaels announced a new match type, which will take place at NXT Deadline on December 10. The match will be called the Iron Survivor Challenge. Two wrestlers will start and every five minutes, a new one will be added until all five are in. You win with the most falls in 25 minutes, with falls coming via pinfall, submission or DQ. If you win a fall, you get a point, but the person who loses the fall is put in a penalty match for 90 seconds. The winner is the new #1 contender, with entrants being announced in the coming weeks. There will be a men’s and women’s edition of the match.

NXT has had an Iron Man match before. Check out the men’s and women’s edition:

Opinion: Well that’s different. There are all kinds of matches out there and this is mixture of several at once. I’m not sure how well it is going to go, but there is definitely going to be some strategy involved. It could go in a variety of different ways and that is a good idea. Sometimes you need to mix things up a bit and that is what NXT seems to be doing, which is great to see.
