WWE has announced the Worlds Collide Tournament, a battle between NXT, NXT UK, and 205 Live set for the Royal Rumble Axxess event.
15 Superstars – five from each brand – will be competing over the course of two days, with the tournament winner receiving a future NXT, NXT UK or 205 Live championship match of their choosing.
This will be a taped WWE Network special and will start with a 15-Superstar Battle Royal on Saturday, January 26, at the 8AM session of Axxess. The order of elimination in the Battle Royal will then determine the first-round matches for a 15-Superstar, single-elimination tournament beginning later that session. The Battle Royal winner will receive a first-round bye.
The tournament will continue at Saturday’s second session of Axxess, taking place from 1PM to 5PM, before concluding at the final Axxess session on Sunday, January 27, from 8AM to Noon.
The 15 Superstars who will be part of this tournament are as follows. Representing NXT: Adam Cole, Velveteen Dream, Dominik Dijakovic, Keith Lee, and Otis Dozovic. Representing NXT UK: Mark Andrews, Tyler Bate, Travis Banks, Jordan Devlin, and Zack Gibson. Representing 205 Live: Cedric Alexander, Humberto Carrillo, Tony Nese, Drew Gulak, and TJP.
