• “He’s not a guy that we have to look at and wonder if he’s going to be a star or not” – WWE Hall Of Famer On Bron Breakker
During a recent edition of his Hall Of Fame podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T talked about NXT 2.0 wrestler Bron Breakker (son of Rick Steiner) and his potential.
Here’s what the WCW Legend said:
“He’s a main roster guy already. He’s a main roster guy right now, he’s not a guy that we have to look at and wonder if he’s going to be a star or not. I’m just saying that because I’ve been impressed just from the outset.
When I look at this Steiner kid, he can go alright, he doesn’t need to be packaged, re-packaged or touched at all because you can tell he knows what he’s doing when he gets in the ring.
That right there is second nature to him, it’s in his blood, it’s in his DNA and I just love to see that kid just get the rocket put on him and send him straight to the moon. That’s what I would do with a kid like that, I really believe he’s that talented right now.
I don’t think he’s [NXT] 2.0, I think that guys fully graduated and got his degree just because of his pedigree. He’s been sitting under the learning tree since he was a baby, that’s like my brother and I knowing each other like the back of my hand because we slept in the same bed for the first 12 years of my life.
When I watch this kid, he makes it real. He’s laughing and it seems like he will rip you to shreds like a rag doll. That’s what he looks like when he’s laughing at you, I’m laughing because you’re in trouble right now.
I’m 100% a believer in Bron Breakker, he’s going to be a big star and that’s why I said he’s a guy that could’ve been packaged and put him right into a main roster situation and put the rocket on him and send his a$$ straight to the moon.
The name is what you make it. If he’s breaking guys in half, hey, the name is going to fit him perfectly. If he’s anything like his uncle, let me tell you right now, these suckers better go on a ride.”
