Bron Breakker made his NXT debut and beat LA Knight this week, but who is he?

Bron Breakker will forever be known as the man who won NXT 2.0’s first match ever, and there are a few reasons why WWE will be hoping he becomes a very big deal.

After weeks of teasers and trailers, NXT 2.0 officially launched on Tuesday night. A revamp a lot of NXT Superstars have reportedly been worried about, and one many fans still seem to be on the fence about, even with show number one in the books. It was a jam-packed two hours that included NXT’s first-ever wedding, and the crowning of a new NXT Champion.

Even though LA Knight was one of the four men chosen to compete for the vacant title, he was goaded into a match at the start of the night by an unfamiliar face. Bron Breakker interrupted Knight backstage, telling the former Million Dollar Champion that he wanted to make a name for himself.

Knight obliged, marching to the ring to teach Breakker a lesson. The trouble is, he didn’t. The debuting Breakker hit Knight with a press slam and pinned him for the win. WWE clearly has high hopes for Breakker, and there’s good reason for that. The young wrestler is a second-generation star. The son of Rick Steiner, and the nephew of Rick’s fellow Steiner brother, Scott.

Breakker played football in college and was actually signed by the Baltimore Ravens after going undrafted in 2020. He was cut before the season started. That’s when he decided to follow in his dad’s and uncle’s footsteps, joining WWE’s Performance Center as a member of the class that was recruited in February of this year. It actually seemed as if Breakker would be carrying on the family name in WWE, changing it to Rex Steiner on Twitter just last week. Plans must have changed between now and then.

Beating Knight wasn’t the only indicator on Tuesday night that WWE has big plans for Breakker. After watching Dexter Lumis and Indi Hartwell tie the knot, the cameras cut to backstage and showed Breakker bumping into new champion, Tomasso Ciampa. The pair shook hands and WWE appears to foreshadow a future title match between them.
