The Daily Wrestling News Update: AEW, WWE (25/12/2019)

As announced by WWE and confirmed during NXT Christmas episode, a big 8-man tag match will be the main event of WWE Worlds Collide event, which will feature WWE NXT vs. NXT UK matches. Worlds Collide takes place on Saturday, January 25, 2020, from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas during WWE Royal Rumble Weekend.

The main event will see Imperium (WWE UK Champion WALTER, Fabian Aichner, Marcel Barthel, Alexander Wolfe) take on The Undisputed Era (NXT Champion Adam Cole, NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong, NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish).

NXT Champion Adam Cole, NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong and NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish have come together to form a deadly faction that has captured every championship in the black-and-gold brand. Since their formation in the summer of 2017, Undisputed ERA have run wild through NXT and unleashed several brutal beatdowns on those who oppose them. They will have no love for the rising brand across the pond and will once again be out to show that their superiority is … well … beyond dispute.

WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER may have been on the NXT team against Raw and SmackDown at “Survivor Series” 2019, but his only true allegiance remains with the sacred mat and with his Imperium cohorts Marcel Barthel, Fabian Aichner and Alexander Wolfe. The destructive foursome from NXT UK does not care how much gold their “Worlds Collide opponents are holding. They will be out for all-out dominance when the two factions meet on the eve of the “Royal Rumble.”

AEW has revealed that the Dynamite debut in New Jersey will be held on March 25 from inside the Prudential Center in Newark. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, January 24 at noon ET (5 PM GMT). It is interesting to notice the March 25 episode is the first to be announced for that month. No arena has been announced yet for March 4, 11 and 18 episodes, which will be the fallout shows of AEW Revolution PPV.

Here are the AEW Top 5 rankings of the week for the women’s, tag team division, and men’s divisions.
