Bronson Rechsteiner, son of Rick Steiner, was working hard at the WWE Performance Center for months. He even appeared on NXT television as an extra as well. On the debut episode of NXT 2.0 in September, Rechsteiner got a new name as he is now known as Bron Breakker. His popularity only grows more each week at this point.
Breakker was even leading the polls for the best NXT 2.0 debut, which was simply a way for the company to put him over. Matt Riddle also compared Bron Breakker to a young Goldberg.
On this week’s NXT New Year’s Evil event, Bron Breakker challenged Tommaso Ciampa for the NXT Championship in the main event of the show. In a true passing of the torch moment, Bron Breakker defeated Tommaso Ciampa for the title.
After the show went off the air, Bron Breakker’s father Rick Steiner came down to the ring and celebrated his NXT Title win. Now that Breakker is the new NXT Champion, it remains to be seen how he will be booked in the coming months.
