The idea is that fans attending will get to see cross-brand matches that they normally would not be able to see. The tournament will be taped for a future WWE Network special.

WWE has announced the following competitors will be involved in the tournament:

Representing NXT: Adam Cole, The Velveteen Dream, Dominik Dijakovic, Keith Lee, and Heavy Machiney's Otis Dozovic.

Representing NXT UK: Mark Andrews, Tyler Bate, Travis Banks, Jordan Devlin and Zack Gibson.

Representing 205 Live: Cedric Alexander, Humberto Carrillo (who has not debuted for the brand yet), Tony Nese, Drew Gulak and TJP.

As previously reported on PWInsider.com, WWE trademarked the "Worlds Collide" name on 1/3.

Carrillo, who's 205 Live debut was spoiled by the announcement, is the former Ultimo Ninja in Mexico. There is an open challenge with Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy on next week's episode of 205 Live, so it could be that's where Carrillo will debut.

The first-ever Royal Rumble AXXESS is set for the Phoenix Convention Center from 1/25-1/27

This sounds awesome but I wish they would've had it be live in an arena like a Takeover show instead of taped from AXXESS.

This Monday following Raw, it will be the WWE Network Original Special "Let Me Tell You Something Gene." The preview for the special notes, "WWE Superstars and Legends celebrate the life and legacy of one of sports entertainment's most beloved personalities, 'Mean' Gene Okerlund."

Although it doesn't debut on the live stream for another 20 minutes, the Nigel McGuinness documentary is already available to stream

Haven’t seen UK Takeover yet but just watched the Nigel doc and it’s damn good. Lots of footage from Nigel’s original self-financed doc, as well as ROH and TNA. Good stuff and so much more uplifting than the original doc, which was heart-breaking to watch and where I really thought Nigel could be a suicide risk. It’s great to see him in a better place and with a baby now and no longer bitter about how his career ended. In a lot of ways WWE basically made the sequel to the original doc and they should get the rights to that and upload it as well.

As an aside, it never ceases to amaze me how honest Daniel Bryan is and how willing WWE seems to be to air some of Bryan’s less flattering interviews about them. In this doc, Bryan comes right out and says that he never wanted to be in WWE, he liked the indies more, but he got to an age where he needed to make money so he took it (his point was in comparison to Nigel who always dreamed about wrestling in WWE and deserved to be there more). Pretty amazing that quote saw the light of day.

Since the advent of the WWE Network's launch in February 2014, the streaming service's infrastructure has been handled by BAMTech, now called Disney Streaming Services, but that ended with an announcement today that WWE will be shifting its product over to Endeavor Streaming. The news was first reported today by entertainment trade publication Variety.

"Endeavor Streaming’s best-in-class technology enables us to offer more features, elevate the user experience and provides us even more opportunity to delight our fans around the world,” WWE chairman/CEO Vince McMahon said in a statement to Variety.

Endeavor Streaming’s clients also include the NFL, NBA, Euroleague, Univision, Sportsnet, Sky Sports, MSG, National Geographic, and Big Ten Network. Endeavor represents WWE as a client for a number of different deals and they officially announced the launch of Endeavor Streaming today.

There is no word when the WWE Network will shift over to Endeavor or if there will be any noticeable change for WWE Network subscribers during the transition.

BAMTech is located in Chelsea Market, there is an elevator that had all of the streaming services marked on it and WWE was not represented - which I found quite strange because I knew from day one they were streaming from the same place as MLB Network was, and MLB Network studios are there too.  So I'm not at all surprised to see this because they obviously updated the graphic knowing that WWE was moving.  I was just down there about three weeks ago, and the elevator door wrap looked brand new.

I'm too lazy to go back and look at every post in this thread to see if it's been discussed already, but April 1992 is when they  officially changed it from Superstars of Wrestling to just Superstars because some other promoter claimed ownership of that trademark and sued them. They'd have to do a lot of work editing if they were going to start from the very beginning in 1986.

Help jog my memory, but was Superstars the new version of Championship Wrestling like Wrestling Challenge was the new version of All-Star Wrestling?

Looking forward to this, Ive seen them all but will gladly watch them again.

During the Wild West days of eBay before there were any copyright rules (or WWF lawyers checking the site) I used to make a fortune selling 6 hour blocks of Superstars from 1986 on VHS. On a good auction, one tape could easily go for $60-$80 and I kept running off copy after copy for months. I remember checking my auctions on 9/11 actually.

We will probably see the Superstars of Wrestling shows from before 1992 eventually. It will be a matter of the WWE either putting this off until it gets low on classic content and it becomes more cost effective, and possibly easier technologically, to do the mass editing or when they go to the rights holder of Superstars of Wrestling and make him a good offer to get those rights off his hands or lease the rights. I can't imagine Albert Patterson and the WWA make any real money off of Superstars of Wrestling these days. Throwing the guy a sum he can live with would make sense. They could also wait until he either lets the rights lapse, however unlikely, or until he dies (he's probably in his early 70s) when the rights might open up or his heirs might be up for making a deal.
