WWE Hall of Famer Rick Steiner has been kidnapped by Joe Gacy and Harland on NXT 2.0!
After successfully regaining the NXT Championship from Dolph Ziggler on Monday Night Raw, Bron Breakker opened NXT 2.0 and addressed the crowd. He was confronted by Imperium leader Gunther, who wanted a match for the championship that night.
The two faced off in the main event of the program, and Bron Breakker was successful in retaining his championship when he defeated Gunther by pinfall. As Breakker, real name Bronson Re was celebrating his victory, a voice called out “Bronson!” which is Bron Breakker’s real name. The champion’s father Rick Steiner appeared on the tron, congratulating his son and saying that he was proud of him.
However, when the camera panned out, it was revealed that Rick Steiner was tied up and being held captive in a cage at the hands of Joe Gacy and Harland. Gacy then addressed Breakker, saying that family is everything. Harland hit the cage with chains and Gacy covered the camera with his hand to end the show.
“Bron, I told you that family was everything. Let’s see if we can teach this old dog some new tricks.”

Bron Breakker inducted his father and uncle Scott Steiner into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2022 this past weekend. Also joining the Class of 2022 were Vader, Queen Sharmell, and The Undertaker, who was inducted personally by Vince McMahon.
Elsewhere on NXT 2.0, Toxic Attraction once again became the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions when they defeated Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai just three days into their championship reign.
