Now, the news that Bron Breakker is the new NXT champion has certainly gone through the rounds, but he said in a recent interview Warrior selection its meteoric rise and the trajectory of NXT’s turning into a new face in record time bring some clarity.
As it turns out, he found out the day before the NXT 2.0 premiere, and his start in the professional wrestling business was just as fast. He also hinted that his uncle, Scott Steiner, was involved at the beginning of his career and feared he would enter the epic “New Year’s Evil”.
“He told us the day before that he had made his debut in NXT 2.0. Before that, he was worried about learning and practicing his craft.
For the onset of New Year’s evil, he didn’t get much advance notice, and admittedly, he was careful that something was going wrong, and the package was dropped. Speaking of which, he played his first game in the fall of 2020, when he signed with Scott Steiner. Scott said, “Hey, you’re fighting,” and he got into the game without knowing what he was doing.
Breakker told us he always wanted to fight, so as soon as football was over for him, he wanted to get into WWE. He participated in the AEW show when he was in college, but was not actively involved. Instead, his father, Rick, was in a lot of contact there and visited his friends. Breakker also spoke highly of the new NIL program with WWE’s college athletes.
In addition to the meteoric climb, Breakker ran a lot with equal support from NXT fans. The professional fight was very clear in his blood and the recognition from Tommaso Ciampa at the end of the game was the poetic ending that all black and gold NXT fans wanted. What a fight it was and what a game it was, no doubt.
The future is certainly a big question mark for Breakker, but for anyone who cares, it seems like he should be at the top of the industry in the short term … especially if things go as fast as they’ve already tried. .
