Unlike the last few years, we will not be treated to an NXT TakeOver event the night before the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Instead, we will see the best of NXT take on the best of NXT UK in a Worlds Collide special event that will air on the WWE Network.
It seems like WWE is going to be taking the show very seriously, as they have just announced a mouth-watering clash for the event.
It was announced on Twitter that NXT’s The Undisputed Era will be taking on NXT UK’s Imperium in an eight-man tag team match that will main event the show.
How's THIS for a COLLISION!? #WWENXT's #UndisputedERA will battle #NXTUK's #IMPERIUM at #WWEWorldsCollide on Saturday, Jan. 25 on @WWENetwork! https://t.co/nKKy5sxPog

WWE.com had the following to say when announcing the match:
When the Superstars of NXT clash with their NXT UK counterparts for brand supremacy at WWE Worlds Collide 2020, one of the most highly-anticipated showdowns will see the forces of Undisputed ERA go head-to-head with the full might of Imperium in an Eight-Man Tag Team Match.
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 though 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 the Royal Rumble.
Which faction will emerge victorious? Find out when WWE Worlds Collide is unleashed on Royal Rumble Weekend, streaming live on Saturday, Jan. 25, beginning at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network!
Ever since Imperium debuted in NXT UK, many fans have been fantasy booking storylines for them to go up against NXT’s most dominant faction in history, Undisputed Era.
Based on the talent that both NXT and NXT UK have at their disposal, I expect this to be just one of many mouth-watering matches that will take place at Worlds Collide next month.
