• Bron Breakker Reveals How He Paid Tribute To His Father (Rick Steiner) Last Week On TV
At last week’s NXT New Year’s Evil, Bron Breakker defeated Tommaso Ciampa to win the NXT Championship in the main event.
In an interview with CBS Sports, the successful rookie revealed that his ring gear was actually a tribute to his father, Old School WCW/WWF Legend Rick Steiner.
The Dog-Faced Gremlin used to wear a similar looking ring-gear when he won the WCW TV Championship in 1998 and also when he became the WCW United States Champion in 2001.
Here’s what Bron said:
“He wore black on that night, his singlet was obviously different. His was probably cooler, to be honest with you. It was just kind of a tribute to that.
Just change it up a little bit and keep people on their toes. Keep people invested in what I’m doing. I want to entertain as much as I can. My wardrobe, what I’m wearing, and stuff are a part of that.”
