It was announced two weeks ago that WWE will running a “When Worlds Collide” tournament during Royal Rumble Axxess events this weekend. The shows will feature NXT, NXT UK and 205 Live stars competing against eachother. What we didn’t know was when those tournaments would air on WWE Network…until now. Here’s the info from WWE.com today:
The first-ever Worlds Collide Tournament — featuring Superstars from NXT, NXT UK and 205 Live competing for a guaranteed championship opportunity — will stream on WWE digital channels and the award-winning WWE Network on Saturday, Feb. 2.
Coverage begins at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT, when the tournament’s opening rounds will stream on WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Then, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, the action continues with the Worlds Collide special on WWE Network, featuring a Battle Royal with all 15 competitors and matches from the later rounds, including the tournament final.
The historic Worlds Collide event is utterly unique in every way. Each brand will be represented by five Superstars, meaning never-before-seen, brand-versus-brand dream matches will become a reality for the very first time. The tournament begins with a 15-Superstar Battle Royal that determines the bracket seeding, and the winner of the entire tournament will receive a future NXT, NXT UK or 205 Live championship match of their choosing. Anyone can become a champion on any brand!
Representing NXT are Adam Cole, Velveteen Dream, Dominik Dijakovic, Keith Lee and Shane Thorne. NXT UK representatives include Mark Andrews, Tyler Bate, Travis Banks, Jordan Devlin and Zack Gibson. Participating Cruiserweights from 205 Live, meanwhile, include Cedric Alexander, Tony Nese, Drew Gulak, TJP and Humberto Carrillo.
Don’t miss a second of the tournament action next Saturday, Feb. 2.
That sounds good to me. I’m usually bored on Saturdays anyway, so I’ll likely review the matches. More wrestling content is a good thing, my friends.
– The annual Royal Rumble “By The Numbers” video is out on WWE’s social media channels. It’s awesome as usual. You can watch the 4:53 video here.
– The WWE Champion Daniel Bryan was angry on Twitter because the “Planet’s Champion” is not happy about a food item that Darren Rovell tweeted about earlier in the day. Bryan unleashed using similar words to his promos on TV.
Chase Field should be ashamed of themselves. Made from factory farmed pigs, an intelligent and extremely social mammal, and cheese from cows, who’s baby’s were ripped away from them. THEN add the heart disease delivered to the people who eat it. #SHAME#TheWorstGenerationhttps://t.co/6zlJ5zpyRN

It looks tasty (sorry Daniel) although it might take a long time to finish it off. At least the Rumble is about six hours long (counting the Kickoff Show), so fans will be able to take their time to eat it.
