• “He reminds me of a younger Goldberg” – Riddle On NXT 2.0 Wrestler
During the latest episode of WWE’s ‘After The Bell’ podcast, RAW Tag Team Champion Riddle praised Bron Breakker, the son of Old School WCW/WWF Tag Team Legend Rick Steiner, who recently debuted in NXT 2.0 and already has his eyes on the NXT Championship.
Here’s what Randy Orton’s current Tag Team partner had to say about Breakker:
“Bron Breakker! Yeah (laughs)! Dude’s a house, the guy is pretty stacked, you know? I mean, right now, he reminds me of a younger Goldberg. I feel like him on the mic, he’s very short, very intense in the ring, he’s not doing a lot of dips and dives, but he definitely gets the job done.
When I think about breakout stars, when I think of up-and-coming, future guys and I see that guy, I think, ‘Yeah, that guy in three years could be fighting for the World Championship.’ He looks the part. Now, only time will tell. From what I’ve seen, he’s going to have a bright future.”
Bron Breakker was originally named Rex Steiner, in reference to his father Rick and his uncle ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner.
