    Collision

    What would happen if a black hole collided with a wormhole?

    Since wormholes are merely theoretical and most likely do not exit, nothing.

    And even if they aren't merely theoretical, naturally, they are microscopic and only open for an instant.
    Macro wormholes wold require technological intervention to be traversible.

    Here's a beautiful YouTube clip showing numerous detected black hole mergers;

    I don't know for sure, but wormholes are supposed to be unstable and will collapse back into black holes if disturbed by a big enough mass, so I'd guess that this would happen with a wormhole/black hole merger. A fraction of the combined mass of the two objects would be radiated as gravity waves, if I'm correct.
