Bron Breakker Says Rick Steiner From '89 Would Squash Malcolm Bivens, Is Delusional

Bron Breakker reflects on his time in NXT and whether or not we will see any high-risk maneuvers added to his offense.

Bron Breakker has become the franchise player of NXT 2.0, in the short time he has been an in-ring ring performer. A second-generation athlete, the son of Rick Steiner, Breakker tells Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp that he has enjoyed the trial by fire experience that he has had in NXT 2.0.

“You know, I think it’s been really cool, obviously, and been a great experience for me,” Breaker began. “I accept it as a challenge; they just throw me out in the mix and just say, ‘Go.’ I think that’s, in my opinion, the best way to learn is just be thrown into the fire and sink or swim. I’m loving the experience, man. I’m enjoying the process. It’s been so much fun.”

Breakker says he finds it hard to just pinpoint one coach from the WWE performance center that has really helped him. He credits the whole culture and team with helping him grow.

“Really, all of them, man. It’s really hard to name a select few. The WWE Performance Center as a whole is fantastic, man. I just can’t say enough good things about our culture there and what we’re about,” said Bron.

Bron’s uncle, Scott Steiner, was known for his innovative offense including The Frankensteiner and an early version of the 450 Splash. As for whether or not Bron Breakker plans on following in his uncle's footsteps, he says he will cross that bridge when he gets there.

“I don’t know. I’ll cross that bridge when I get [there]. I don’t know. We’ll see. I like to think of myself as a brawler. I’m not a flippity… I don’t need to do that. I don’t know. We’ll see,” he answered.

Asked who would win in a fight between his Hall of Fame father, Rick Steiner, and the biggest bully in NXT, Malcolm Bivens, it's pretty easy to see where Breakker’s allegiance lays.

“You know the answer to that,” Bron said. “Steiner ’89. Two hundred pound Rick Steiner. He’d probably tie his hands behind his back. C’mon, man.”

On a recent episode of NXT television, Rick Steiner was actually kidnapped. Learn more about that here.
