Second-generation star Bronson Rechsteiner could be set for his WWE debut after he changed his name on social media, taking the last name of his wrestling father and uncle.
Bronson Rechsteiner, the son of former WWE Tag Team Champion Rick Steiner and the nephew of his brother Scott Steiner, has changed his name and handles on social media with an apparent nod to his future name in WWE.
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 Bronson 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.
“People are heavily praising the potential of the “real athletes” in camp right now, notably Bronson Rechsteiner, the son of Rick Steiner, and the Kasper Brothers, who were great college wrestlers, as well as Bobby Steveson, the older brother of Gable Steveson. Bobby Steveson is supposed to start officially on the roster at the next camp. But all were praised for how well they were picking things up, conditioning and attitude. Parker Boudreaux, who has a lot of attention due to his similarities physically with Brock Lesnar, was distinctly not mentioned as being in the same category as the others.”
Now with NXT set to debut its new revamped show on the 14th of September, Rechsteiner has given an indication of his own future.
On Twitter, he has changed his handle to @rexsteinerwwe and his name to Rex Steiner. Whether or not Steiner’s NXT debut is imminent, it seems that he will continue the legacy of his legendary family name in the wrestling business.
