• New NXT Champion Bron Breakker Asked If The Steiner Brothers Will Return To WWE
During a recent interview with The Sporting News, new NXT Champion Bron Breakker was asked about the possibility of the legendary WCW/WWF Tag Team The Steiner Brothers appearing on WWE TV with him at some point in the future.
Bron Breakker, whose real name is Bron Rechsteiner, is the son of ‘The Dog-Faced Gremlin’ Rick Steiner and the nephew of ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner.
Here’s what Bron had to say:
“It would be great for both of them to be a part of my career at some point. Who knows? I have no idea. But it would be a cool moment for me because neither of them have seen me wrestle in person. They’ve watched it on TV. Maybe down the line, they can be part of something with me. I don’t know.”
This interview took place before last night’s NXT New Year’s EVIL, where Breakker defeated Tommaso Ciampa to win the NXT Championship.
Rick Steiner was in attendance for this match and entered the ring to celebrate with his son after the show went off the air.
