This year, Royal Rumble weekend is special. Not only do we get Brock Lesnar trying to knock down the entire WWE roster in one battle royale, we get Worlds Collide, an event that has stars from both brands of NXT duking it out in special matchups. We already know that both of the brand’s dominant factions will clash in an 8-man tag team match between The Undisputed Era and Imperium.
Since the world titles are tied up in that match, it only makes sense that newly crowned NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley will put her gold up on the line. What’s unexpected is that she’ll face off against Toni Storm, her old rival from her days on the UK roster. This blockbuster title clash was teased on this week’s NXT, and WWE Now has confirmed that the reignition of their rivaly is on for Worlds Collide.
Another huge presence in NXT these days is the reinvigorated Finn Balor. WWE Now has confirmed that he’ll be putting his skills to the test against NXT UK firebrand Ilja Dragunov. Who will come out on top in the battle of the leather jackets? We’ll have to wait until Saturday, January 25, 2020 to find out what happens when Worlds Collide.
