• Rick Steiner Asks His Son Why He Didn’t Use The Steiner Name In WWE
WWE Network released the newest edition of ‘WWE Table For 3’ a few days ago, this time featuring the legendary WWF/WCW Tag Team The Steiner Brothers, Rick & Scott Steiner, along with Rick’s son, current NXT Champion Bron Breakker.
During the discussion, Rick asked his son about the origins of his WWE ring name:
“I know WWE came up with Bron Breakker, why not like Bron Steiner? Why, like, who comes up with that?”
“I kind of came up with it from football and just playing football I tried to hurt people or break people in half when I was blocking.
That’s kind of how I came up with the name and I don’t feel like we need to use the [Steiner] name for me to be successful. I mean, I think I should, just go my own, go my own route and pay tribute to The Steiner Brothers.”
Bron Breakker was originally named Rex Steiner during his WWE Performance Center preparation to debut on NXT TV, but when his official debut happened, the name was changed at the last minute and he became known as Bron Breakker, a decision that was made when Vince McMahon was still in charge of WWE.
Bron sort of defending and justifying that decision now is more likely just a case of him being a good soldier and loyal to his employer.
