Bron Breakker has exploded on the NXT 2.0 scene, immediately jumping into the main scene and stepping to Tommaso Ciampa for the NXT Championship.
Breakker is the son of Rick Steiner and many fans are ready to push him to the moon.
Ciampa thinks fans should pump the breaks a little on the hype.
"I saw the Roman Reigns thing about WrestleMania and all that. [Bron Breakker] hasn't been on TakeOver yet, you know? He has a he hasn't main evented a singles match yet. I said it last week on NXT, and it's kind of just how I feel, like you put him in a ring with a guy like myself who's 16/17+ years deep and it's not just like sink or swim at that point. Like, I think the quote I used is "he was going to drown in an ocean of inexperience,' and it's not even about being prepared for the moment and you know, he can't be prepared for the moment. So hopefully he's just able to take all the highs as well as he can take the lows because he hasn't quite hit that point yet," Ciampa told Louis Dangoor of GiveMeSport.
Elaborating on Breakker's inexperience, Ciampa said, "It's tough shoes to fill all around, from family all the way to just the predictions and the expectations and stuff. Hopefully, [Bron Breaker] is able to just keep his head straight on, you know, that's the hardest part. I think he's 23/24 years old, fairly new to the wrestling business as far as him actually being in a ring, so I don't know man. Like the sky is the limit for him, it'll be interesting to see how he handles the pressure. I think that's gonna be one of the key component components to it."
Breakker picked up a victory over LA Knight in his NXT debut on September 14 and teamed with Ciampa to defeat Pete Dunne & Ridge Holland the following week.
