Angel Garza to defend Cruiserweight title at WWE Worlds Collide


The NXT Cruiserweight Championship will be on the line at WWE's Worlds Collide special during Royal Rumble weekend.

On this morning's episode of WWE's The Bump, it was announced that Angel Garza will defend his Cruiserweight title in a fatal four-way match at Worlds Collide. There will be a triple threat match between Lio Rush, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, and Tyler Breeze on NXT tonight to determine one of Garza's challengers for the Worlds Collide bout.

It was noted that the other two wrestlers in the fatal four-way match will be from NXT UK. NXT vs. NXT UK is the theme of Worlds Collide.

Breeze made his cruiserweight division debut by defeating Tony Nese on last week's 205 Live. Rush vs. Scott was set for the episode, but there was an angle where The Singh Brothers interrupted the match as it was going on. It was turned into a tag match with Rush & Scott defeating The Singhs.

Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong) vs. Imperium (WALTER, Marcel Barthel, Fabian Aichner & Alexander Wolfe), NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley defending her title against Toni Storm, and Finn Balor vs. Ilja Dragunov are also set for Worlds Collide.

Worlds Collide is being held at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on Saturday, January 25. It will air live on the WWE Network.
