Future Of NXT Championship Revealed

Bron Breakker with the NXT Championship

Bron Breakker looks set to lock horns with a new rival at NXT Great American Bash, and his NXT Championship will be on the line.

NXT Champion Bron Breakker is currently riding high after defeating Joe Gacy in the main event at NXT In Your House.

The second generation star has been a dominant force since making his debut back in September, and already stands as a two-time NXT Champion.

On the June 7th edition of NXT 2.0 following his latest win, Bron Breakker addressed fans and laid down a challenge for a rival to come out and face him. This surprisingly brought out Apollo Crews who mas making his first appearance on the show since 2016.

During the segment, Crews was greeted like a returning hero and heaped praise on the second generation star, before promising to meet him in the ring down the road.

This led many to believe that the former Intercontinental Champion would be next in line for a shot at the NXT Championship. However, that appears to not be the case.

As reported by Mike Johnson of PWInsider, at the most recent NXT taping, NXT ran an angle which saw Cameron Grimes challenge Breakker for a match at The Great American Bash.

After finally making it to the moon, Grimes was brought back back to earth at In Your House, where he was defeated by Carmelo Hayes, losing his NXT North American Championship in the process.
