• Up-and-Coming WWE Star Is Studying The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Matches, Reveals What He Has Learned
During a recent interview with DAZN, new NXT Champion Bron Breakker, the son of WCW/WWF Tag Team Legend Rick Steiner, revealed that he has been studying past matches of several Old School Wrestling Legends.
Breakker won the NXT Championship by defeating Tommaso Ciampa in the main event of the recent ‘NXT: New Year’s EVIL 2022’ TV special on January 4, 2022.
Below are the highlights from this interview:
On being compared to his dad and The Steiner Brothers:
“Yeah, I would like to say that I’m on my own way. I do some things that are similar to them. He’s my dad. Things are gonna be similar. He’s my dad (laughs). They’re my family. It’s more of me paying tribute to them and paying my respects because they laid the groundwork for me.
They paved the way, and it’s my job to pay my respects as a young guy and as my dad’s son to make him proud and to make my uncle proud and to be respectful and carry on what they’ve laid for me and make my own way.”
On which Old School Legends he studied:
“I watch a lot of Goldberg. Watch a lot of Steve Austin. I’m watching my dad and uncle a lot as well. But here recently, I’ve been watching a lot of The Undertaker, and some of his WrestleMania matches over again.
I love the matches and everything, but it’s more for educational purposes, and I’m trying to study and see what they’re doing and just watch these professionals, veterans of the game.
These guys are the best of the best. Anytime I can go back and watch tape and figure out what these guys are doing and anything I can pick up on to make me better, I’m going to do it.”
On what he learned from The Undertaker by watching his matches:
“He takes his time. He makes moments out of things. He’s very methodical. He’s so damn good. He’s got this ability, and it draws your attention, your undivided attention. Now we have social media. We have cell phones. We have internet. We have all this stuff that can draw your attention and stuff.
But when he’s on the screen, he’s just got this undeniable all eyes are on him, watching him the whole time he’s in his entrance, in the ring, anything he’s doing. He’s freaking one of the best ever, if not the best ever. He’s unbelievable.”
