Superstar Removed From Worlds Collide Tournament

NXT Superstar Otis Dozovic has been removed from the Worlds Collide tournament that will take place during Royal Rumble Axxess this coming weekend. This may well be due to his main roster call-up. Otis’ replacement has been confirmed as Shane Thorne.

WWE has confirmed that the tournament will begin taping on Saturday. This will be in the afternoon during the second Axxess session. The finals will be taking place on the final session on Sunday before the Royal Rumble event itself. A 15 man Battle Royal will be determining the first round matches which will be taking place on Saturday morning.

WWE issued the following regarding the tournament: “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!”
