• Original Plan For Bron Breakker At Royal Rumble 2022
As we noted earlier, NXT Champion Bron Breakker was in St. Louis for Royal Rumble 2022, as a back up if needed in the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
According to the Wrestling Observer, there was a spot planned between Breakker and Dolph Ziggler at first, but then the plan got nixed:
“There was some talk of doing a Bron Breakker spot with Dolph Ziggler to build NXT, but the decision was made not to have anyone from NXT in the Rumble.”
For those who don’t know, there a rivalry going on between Ziggler and NXT 2.0 wrestlers.
After last week’s RAW, The Dirty Dawgs (Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode) were getting interviewed backstage when Roderick Strong & LA Knight passed them.
Ziggler then asked what’s going on and Knight challenged Dirty Dawgs to come down to NXT 2.0. Ziggler then said he doesn’t work on Tuesday.
Breakker then took a shot at Ziggler, by posting a clip of Bad Bunny eliminating Ziggler from the Royal Rumble and writing the following with it:
“Says he doesn’t work on Tuesdays … apparently he can’t work on Saturday either @HEELZiggler”

In a backstage interview after this week’s RAW, Ziggler was asked about these comments from Breakker.
Dolph said people say a lot of things online that they wouldn’t say face to face. Ziggler then teased facing Breakker and taking the NXT Championship from him.
