Naked blocks are documented as being internally implemented as loops which are only executed once.¹
next is a loop control which reevaluates the condition, which is false now.
It's no goto, you can only use if for lables just in front of loop-starts, OTOH gotos can jump to any lables in the same scope.
For your purpose better try redo
or real gotos
