• Top NXT Star Could Be Moving To The WWE Main Roster Sooner Than Expected
On Monday’s RAW, Bron Breakker had his 1st ever match on the WWE main roster, where he teamed up with Tommaso Ciampa to defeat Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode.
Then on Tuesday’s NXT, Breakker lost the NXT Championship to Ziggler in a Triple Threat Match, where Ziggler pinned Ciampa to win the match.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Breakker lost the Title this week so he could win it back in front of a big crowd at NXT Stand & Deliver, which will take place a few hours before Night 1 of WrestleMania 38.
However, Vince McMahon was impressed with Breakker’s performance on RAW and he could become a permanent member of the WWE main roster sooner than expected:
“He lost to set up the fact that he’s gonna win the title.
There is talk of him going to the main roster pretty quickly. He’s wrestling on this weekend’s house shows. Maybe he’ll lose and just go to the main roster, I don’t know.
Him and Gable Steveson are supposed to be main roster bound. That’s a tough comparison because Bron Breakker is gonna make it. Gable Steveson is a phenomenal athlete though.”
Breakker (age 24) has only wrestled 19 matches in his career. He is the son of Rick Steiner.

• Old School Wrestling Jobber Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 64th birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Randy Barber.
Randy Barber did televised jobs as an enhancement talent for various promotions during the 70s and 80s, including the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA), Championship Wrestling from Florida (CWF), American Wrestling Association (AWA), Mid-South Wrestling, Georgia Championship Wrestling, … and many others.
In 1989, Randy returned to the NWA’s #1 promotion, which was now owned by Ted Turner and renamed World Championship Wrestling (WCW), as “The Raider” but was still used solely as enhancement talent.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE!
