Triple H Confirms Worlds Collide For Royal Rumble Weekend, Featuring NXT Battling NXT UK

WWE Worlds Collide

As previously reported, the Royal Rumble weekend NXT Takeover has long been replaced by a “Worlds Collide” event. In past years, these have been WWE Network specials with talent from all of WWE’s brands battling. Since we’re just hours removed from a similar event in the Survivor Series, this sort of action didn’t make much sense.

Now, NXT Founder Triple H has clarified that Worlds Collide 2020 will be specific to NXT’s two existing brands. Stars from NXT and NXT UK will match up for a mini case of brand supremacy. NXT talent are already reacting to the news, with Bronson Reed wanting to take on NXT UK’s resident titan WALTER.

Worlds Collide will take place on January 25 on the eve of this year’s Royal Rumble. WWE promises appearances from “NXT Champion Adam Cole, WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER, NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray, The Undisputed ERA, Imperium and more.”
