The following results were taped this Saturday, January 26th at WWE Royal Rumble Axxess events, and features the entire first round of the highly anticipated WWE When Worlds Collide tournament, which will be distributed across the company’s social media platforms in the coming weeks.
— Jordan Devlin won a 15-man Battle Royale to advance to the second round
— Drew Gulak (205 Live) def. Mark Andrews (NXT UK)
— Dominik Dijakovic (NXT) def. TJP (205 Live)
— Keith Lee (NXT) def. Travis Banks (NXT UK)
— Humberto Carrillo (205 Live) def. Zack Gibson (NXT UK)
— Velveteen Dream (NXT) def. Tony Nese (205 Live)
— Adam Cole (NXT) def. Shane Thorne (NXT)
— Tyler Bate (NXT UK) def. Cedric Alexander (205 Live)
— WALTER def. Danny Burch
— Flash Morgan Webster def. James Drake
So advancing to the second round of the tournament are TWO stars from 205 Live, FOUR stars from the WWE NXT brand, and TWO stars from NXT UK including Jordan Devlin, who of course won the opening Battle Royale.
It’s not clear if they have plans on running these same brackets or shaking things up for the second round, but if they hold, Tyler Bate vs. Adam Cole, Velveteen Dream vs. Humberto Carrillo, and of course the indie dream match come back to life, Keith Lee vs. Donovan Dijak could all be match of the weekend candidates.
