Bronson Reed first debuted in NXT in 2019. While he was never considered a top guy in the developmental brand, he still managed to win the NXT North American Championship. However, his reign as champion only lasted 42 days. Reed was eventually released from the company in 2021. Thanks to Triple H, Reed was able to return, and he had a lot of experience during his short hiatus.
Following his release, Reed plied his trade in NJPW and Impact Wrestling before returning to the company last year. He impressed everyone where ever he went, which was not a huge surprise.
Bronson Reed recently did an interview with Fightful where he mentioned that time away from the company helped him build confidence that has helped him perform within the company.
Bronson Reed also noted that while he didn’t have a chip on his shoulder, he felt there was unfinished business for him. He also mentioned that he was happy that his finisher, the Tsunami splash, has received a positive reaction and recalls how no one has kicked out of the move in the five years since he renamed it the Tsunami.
Reed had a lot to say, and the full interview has yet to drop, but you may check out the notes that appeared on Fightful’s paywall below.
“Fightful’s Joel Pearl spoke to Bronson Reed for a new interview.
He said that the time away from WWE helped add confidence to him that has helped him perform within the company. He doesn’t have a chip on his shoulder, but he always felt like there was unfinished business with him in the company. He didn’t get to be on Raw, Smackdown or PLE shows. The time away helped lead him back.
He’s happy with the reaction to the Tsunami splash that is his finisher, and feels like its special. Nobody has kicked out of it in the five years since he renamed it the Tsunami. He wants to create viral moments with things like that move and throwing Mustafa Ali into chairs that will help gain buzz,” per Fightful Select.
It’s good to hear that Bronson Reed is more confident during his second run with the company and we hope that this will help him get a much better push than last time. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we bring you similar stories.
