Shawn Michaels adds Roxanne to the match. 

After Roxanne Perez successfully defended the NXT Women’s Championship against Meiko Satomura, she collapsed in the ring.

Due to her condition being unknown, it was decided that if she was not ready to go, a new champion would be crowned at Stand & Deliver via a Ladder match. On the 3/28 NXT on USA Network, Perez returned to NXT TV and she pleaded her case to Shawn Michaels to allow her to defend her title. 

Michaels was hesitant, but gave Perez the green light and she’ll now officially be defending her championship at the Premium Live Event. 

In a Triple-Threat, Indi Hartwell defeated Ivy Nile and Sol Ruca to secure the final spot in the match.
