He even has a bit of his uncle’s cadence and promo style.
He Was A Football Star
Before he was the NXT champion, Breakker excelled on the football field. He played fullback at Kennesaw State and signed as an undrafted free agent for the Baltimore Ravens. The dude has some sick measurables.
New Ravens FB Bronson Rechsteiner interested me a lot….I decided to research him more

Is Bron Breakker The Future of NXT?
Frankly, the change was overdue. NXT being an indie wrestling showcase every week wasn’t working, and the stars coming from there were not making it on the main roster, so I think a change needed to happen. I can’t entirely agree with all of the decisions leading to that change, such as the firing of William Regal, but the goal of NXT and the Performance Center is to make stars who can go to the main roster and make money.
I think Breakker can be one of those big draws. He has a great look, elite athleticism, and he has been training with WWE for less than a year, and he already is main eventing and looking like a million bucks. Now granted, his matches were all with highly experienced stars, and I think he will be wrestling a lot of established stars moving forward, but his upside is undeniable.
