On his recent podcast, a WWE Hall of Famer has praised the “Natural Skills” of current NXT Champion Bron Breakker.
Jake “The Snake” Roberts will perhaps go down as one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time to never hold a World Championship. Even though retired from in-ring action a long time ago, Roberts has always been receptive of the newer generation of stars.
Speaking on the latest “DDP Snake Pit” Podcast, the legendary wrestler discussed how of big of an admirer he has become of the Steiner Family’s prodigy. Roberts referred to the September 6, 2022, episode of NXT 2.0 where Bron Breakker teamed up with Tyler Bate to take on Joe and Mark Coffey in the main event of show, and mentioned that he sees natural skill in the young Steiner:
“I was glad to see our buddy, the Steiner boy [Breakker]. Him and his tag team partner Tyler Bate they did some stuff. Really enjoyed seeing him, …. Bron Breakker, or Bronson or Steiner as I call him, because he is a Steiner, with his dad and his uncle. That kid’s got such natural skills. They’ve got some great talent down there in NXT.”
Jake Roberts is currently signed to All Elite Wrestling as the manager for Lance Archer, but has not appeared on any of the promotion’s shows since the April 27, 2022 episode of Dynamite, where he would accompany Archer to the ring during Archer’s match with Wardlow. According to Dave Meltzer, Roberts is off-television due to bladder surgery. There is currently no word on a timetable for his return.
