What might well be the busiest wrestling weekend of the year is almost upon us. WWE’s biggest UK show for three decades, an NXT vs. NXT UK supershow the next day, and then AEW All Out to close the weekend. NXT had just one more show to get all its ducks in a row for Worlds Collide on Tuesday, and it utilized plenty of main roster stars to get that done.
Some of the main rosters stars who made NXT cameos on Tuesday did so in an attempt to light fires under the various stars competing for multiple titles this weekend. Bron Breakker was warned not to underestimate Tyler Bate by Finn Balor, while Ciampa attempted to remind the champ just how much the NXT Title should mean to him.
Bate had a visitor of his own. Well, visitor via satellite, Rock-style. Finlay handed Bate a tablet on which his fellow Big Strong Boy Butch was waiting to chat. The man formerly known as Pete Dunne told Bate to unify the titles for NXT UK, a brand which will officially be laid to rest after Worlds Collide, paving the way for NXT Europe.
As for the women, Mandy Rose was paid a visit by Shayna Baszler. Baszler was less motivational and more threatening, labeling Rose a lesser champion than she was. Rhea Ripley also returned, backing Blair Davenport. None of the names mentioned so far will actually be competing at Worlds Collide. A few other stars from Raw and SmackDown will be, though.
After picking up a win on Tuesday night, NXT Tag Champions Kayden Carter and Katana Chance were confronted by Nikki ASH and Doudrop. It was confirmed later in the night that they will compete for the titles at Worlds Collide. Ricochet will also be on the show as he returned to NXT this week to challenge Carmelo Hayes for the North American Title. A championship Ricochet has held before, and is hoping to hold again come Sunday.
