Rok-C debuts at WWE NXT Level Up taping, gets new name

Rok-C is now going under the name Roxanne Perez in NXT.

Rok-C made her NXT debut during tonight's NXT Level Up tapings.

Going under the name Roxanne Perez, she defeated Sloane Jacobs. This is her first match since WWE confirmed her signing last month.

Trained by Booker T, Rok-C first started wrestling under Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling promotion. In 2021, she started to gain attention during her run in Ring of Honor, competing in a tournament to crown the first Ring of Honor Women’s World Champion. At 19, she became the first-ever champion by defeating Miranda Alize in a tournament final. Before the company temporarily shut down in December, she defeated Willow Nightingale to retain the championship at Final Battle.

Rok-C went on to lose the title to Deonna Purrazzo on the episode of Impact Wrestling that aired on January 13 that had been for both the ROH Women’s World Championship and the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship.

Other matches taped for Level Up this week had Damon Kemp defeating Troy Donovan and Tatum Paxley defeating Kiana James.
