WWE Pulls Wrestler From “Worlds Collide” Tournament
As previously reported, WWE officially announced The WWE Worlds Collide Tournament during Royal Rumble weekend as part of Axxess. The tournament will feature talent from The NXT, NXT UK & 205 Live Brands.
One of the stars listed for 205 Live was Humberto Carrillo. The former Ultimo Ninja was part of the class of The WWE Performance Center recruits last October and worked a match for NXT Television later that month where he teamed with Raul Mendoza in a losing effort to Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch.
WWE has since removed Carrillo from their article about the event and it simply says that “A Superstar to be named” will be filling his spot. Cedric Alexander, Tony Nese, Drew Gulak & TJP are the other names for The 205 Live Brand while Adam Cole, Velveteen Dream, Dominik Dijakovic, Keith Lee & Otis Dozovic will be representing NXT. Mark Andrews, Tyler Bate, Travis Banks, Jordan Devlin & Zack Gibson will be in the tournament for NXT UK.
The tournament will start as a 15-Man Battle Royal on Saturday, which will determine the first round matches for the tournament beginning later that day. The winner of the battle royal will receive a bye in the first round.
The tournament will conclude on Sunday at the final Axxess session. The winner of the tournament will be awarded a future title shot.
