In an exclusive interview with FanSided, WWE superstar Drew McIntyre talked about Bron Breakker’s high potential in NXT 2.0.
NXT was once the development program for WWE prospects to hone their craft. It then switched to the “Black and Yellow” brand, featuring top-notch wrestling matches for die-hard fans. But last fall, WWE hit the rebranding button once again, now known as NXT 2.0, with a focus on young talent and the growth of on-screen characters.
I spoke privately with WWE superstar and former NXT champion Drew McIntyre, who joined FanSided on behalf of the Special Olympics during Super Bowl week, and asked him which NXT 2.0 wrestler he thought he was. could star on Raw and SmackDown in the future.
McIntyre says he sees eight to 10 people who can get there. One name he came up with was the current NXT Bron Breakker Champion.
“People can clearly see the date that Bron Breakker has a pedigree, ahead of his position. McIntyre said. “The key to him being as young as I was when I was younger, was just keeping his feet on the ground and just keeping perspective. But given his family lineage, he will be fine. I’ve met him a few times, he’s a nice guy.”
Drew McIntyre on the potential of Bron Breakker
Breakker is the son of former multi-time team champion Rick Steiner. His uncle is former WCW Heavyweight champion Scott Steiner, aka “Big Poppa Pump.”
Before joining WWE, Breakker played college football for Kennesaw State as a fullback. In 2020, he signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an untrained free agent. He was released later that summer, where he began his professional wrestling career.
Breakker participated in the first match of NXT 2.0 on September 14, 2021, where he defeated LA Knight. One of the newest stars of the revamped franchise, Breakker challenged then-NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa to a title match at the NXT Halloween Havoc, a match he failed to win. At NXT WarGames, Breakker gave Team 2.0 a victory (Carmelo Hayes, Tony D’Angelo and Grayson Waller) over Team Black and Gold (Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, LA Knight and Pete Dunne) after pinning Ciampa in a WarGames match.
At New Year Evil on January 4, 2022, Breakker officially reached the top of the mountain by defeating Ciampa to win the NXT championship, while establishing himself as the face of the brand.
Breakker recently defended his NXT championship against Santos Escobar during the Revenge Day special on February 15.
