Roxanne Perez Secures Semifinal Berth In WWE NXT Women's Title Tournament

Roxanne Perez has taken one step closer to regaining the "NXT" Women's Championship.

During Tuesday's edition of "NXT," Perez punched her ticket to the semifinals of the "NXT" Women's Championship Tournament after defeating Jacy Jayne in a quarterfinals match. The closing moments of the contest saw Perez duck out of the way of a kick from Jayne before delivering a kick of her own and following it up with Pop Rox.


Perez will go head-to-head with Tiffany Stratton, who staked her claim after overcoming Gigi Dolin last week. The pair have met in the squared circle on a handful of occasions, including the finals of the 2022 Women's Breakout tournament, a triple threat match for the "NXT" Women's Championship, and a six-way ladder match for the aforementioned title at "NXT" Stand & Deliver in April.

On the other side of the bracket, Perez's former best friend Cora Jade will go one-on-one with Lyra Valkyria. Jade and Valkyria have been at odds over the past few weeks, with Valkyria taking objection to Jade's comments about the current state of the "NXT" women's division a few weeks ago.

The "NXT" Women's Championship was vacated by Indi Hartwell on the May 2 edition of the show following an ankle injury she had sustained the week prior, as well as being moved to "WWE Raw" during night one of this year's WWE Draft.


Perez dethroned Mandy Rose to win the "NXT" Women's Championship ahead of the latter's exit from the company, which is her first and only reign till date.
