WWE Worlds Collide[1][2][3] was a two-day professional wrestling show and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their 205 Live, NXT, and NXT UK brands. The event took place on January 26 and 27, 2019 at Royal Rumble Axxess and aired on the WWE Network on February 2, 2019.[1]

The event featured the 15-man Worlds Collide tournament, with the wrestlers being equally divided amongst the NXT, NXT UK, and 205 Live rosters.[4] The tournament was won by NXT's Velveteen Dream,[5] who chose to face Johnny Gargano for the NXT North American Championship.

The card included matches that resulted from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results were predetermined by WWE's writers on the 205 Live, NXT, and NXT UK brands,[6][7] with storylines produced on WWE's weekly television shows, NXT, NXT UK, and the cruiserweight-exclusive 205 Live.[8]

The winner of the tournament would receive a championship match of their choice for either the United Kingdom, North American, NXT, or Cruiserweight Championship (the latter only being an option if the winner was within the 205 lb. weight limit).[4]

On January 10, a 15-man battle royal was announced for the event. The order of elimination in the battle royal determined the first-round matches for the Worlds Collide tournament. The winner of the battle royal would receive a bye to the second-round.[9]
