The Worlds Collide Tournament will be taped in its entirety for a WWE Network special, though it’s not known when it will air.

For those of you in the area, Axxess begins on Saturday, January 26th at 8 am MST with the 15-man battle royal. The rest of the tournament will be spread across the Saturday afternoon Axxess session, taking place from 1-5 pm, and Sunday’s session from 8-12 noon.

    Glad TJP is in it

    The comedy of this is, TJP did not even know he was in it and WWE suddenly realised
    Humberto Carrillo is on NXT not 205 live (at least right now) and pulled him from the event.

    This could lead to some fantastic matches.
