• Bron Breakker Makes A Big Prediction For June 2022
During a recent interview on WWE’s After The Bell podcast, new NXT Champion Bron Breakker talked about winning his 1st title in pro-wrestling last week, his future & more.
Below are the highlights:
On winning the NXT Championship in front of his father (Rick Steiner):
“That’s the first time my dad’s seen me wrestle,” Breakker said. “It was cool, man. Just to see him and my brother in the front row, my dad has high expectations for me.
There’s a high bar and I’ve got big shoes to fill in terms of what he and my uncle did for me. It’s cool man, it was cool to be a part of that, it was an emotional rollercoaster and I’m glad he was able to come down and share that with me.”
On paying tribute to The Steiner Brothers (his father Rick and his uncle Scott Steiner):
“There’s a couple of things that I do that my dad and uncle both did back in the day, and there’s a reason for that. I’m not doing it just because it’s their stuff and I want to use it.
It’s more about me preserving things they’ve done back in the day and I think it’s cool that I can do both, take things from both of them and implement them into my arsenal.
The singlets that I wear represent my family and no one does that anymore. Big E wears a singlet but the style that I do is from the 80s, man, nobody does it anymore.”
On his prediction for 2022:
“I predict Bron Breakker is Intercontinental Champion by June. Intercontinental Champion, if not more, by June. I will say, just to cover my own you know what, I look at the Intercontinental Championship and the United States Championship as kind of that same level.
I know enough about this place, I know enough about this business and I think it’s been a long time since we’ve seen someone like Bron Breakker.
Someone who is no-nonsense, no BS, no frills, just smash mouth with a smart personality, with a demeanor.
A dude who just wants to put in the work and pay respect and be great and make a name for himself while paying homage to the past, that’s a special combination that’s few and far between.
Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself by saying June, but that’s how big I think this dude can be in this business.”
