WWE is going away from its normal schedule for “the big four” events as it appears that there will not be a special from the NXT brand during Royal Rumble weekend.
WWE released travel package information on Monday for Royal Rumble weekend. This is where it was revealed that NXT TakeOver wasn’t listed but instead, WWE Worlds Collide was listed for that Saturday at the Toyota Center.
It should be noted that RAW and SmackDown TV events weren’t listed as well.
Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed WWE Worlds Collide will be replacing NXT TakeOver on this weekend.
According to the report, this was not a mistake and that the schedule of NXT TakeOver events in 2020 with more details will be announced in the near future.
