Bron Breakker made his long-awaited debut in NXT, and not only that, he debuted with a win.
As NXT 2.0 sparked into life, all of the competitors in the NXT Championship Fatal-4-Way Match cut backstage promos. After LA Knight ran down just why he was going to take home the gold, he was confronted by Breakker.
While Knight has a significant experience advantage he wasn’t able to fully utilise it against the powerful rookie. After a belly-to-belly suplex and a series of hard-hitting clotheslines, Breakker drilled Knight to the mat with a gorilla press into a powerslam to pick up the win.
Bron Breakker is the son of former WWE and WCW star Rick Steiner, and nephew of Scott Steiner.

It was originally believed that Rechsteiner’s ring name would be Rex Steiner, after he switched his name to the new moniker only a matter of days ago on social media.
Rechsteiner signed with WWE in February 2021 after impressing during a try-out at the tail end of the previous year. The second-generation star-to-be joined the company as part of the largest ever Performance Center Class. The group included the likes of Parker Boudreaux, Priscilla Kelly, and Christian Hubble.
Recently, Rechsteiner was reportedly “heavily praised” by those backstage in WWE. Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that Rechsteiner, along with the Kasper Brothers and Bobby Steveson have been praised for their conditioning, attitude and how well they’ve picked things up.
