WWE Announces Worlds Collide Tournament For Royal Rumble Weekend

WWE announced a special Worlds Collide Tournament will be taking place at Royal Rumble AXXESS on Jan. 26 and 27. The tournament will feature superstars from NXT, NXT UK and 205 Live and the winner will receive a future title shot. The event will be taped as part of a WWE Network schedule.

Full details, including a list of participants, are below:

Brand-versus-brand dream matches will become a reality as 15 Superstars in total — five from NXT, five from NXT UK and five from 205 Live — will compete over the course of two days, with the tournament winner receiving a future NXT, NXT UK or 205 Live Championship Match of their choosing. That means anyone can become a champion on any brand!
