It’s already back. Earlier this year, WWE presented an event called When Worlds Collide, a tournament featuring talent from 205 Live, NXT and NXT UK, all battling for a future title shot against a champion of their choice. The idea worked fairly well so it was decided that it was already time to do it again. In this case though, there was a minor change made to the concept.
WWE taped another edition of When Worlds Collide on Monday at WrestleMania Axxess, though there is no indication of any kind of tournament format this time around. The event featured female talent only, with wrestlers from the main roster, NXT and NXT UK. There is no word on when these matches will air, though the previous edition debuted on the WWE Network within a few days. Here are the results, courtesy of 411mania.com:
* Dana Brooke defeated Jessie
* Toni Storm defeated Nikki Cross and Bianca Belair in a Triple Threat Match for the NXT UK Women’s Title
* Candice LaRae defeated Kay Lee Ray
* Marina Shafir defeated Taynara Conti
* Piper Niven defeated Zelina Vega
* Aliyah and Vanessa Borne defeated Xia Li and Kavita Devi
* Sonya Deville defeated Io Shirai
* Kairi Sane defeated Jessamyn Duke
* Kacy Catanzaro defeated Reina González via DQ
* Lacey Lane defeated Deonna Purrazzo
It’s totally the same thing. Check out the original final:
Opinion: I’d be curious to see what else was filmed for this special, as this feels a lot less focused than what we got before. This feels more like a regular Axxess match session than a special, which isn’t the worst idea in the world but it doesn’t exactly live up to what they had earlier this year. Then again, WWE does have a track record of making things better than they seem on paper.
