Braun Breaker may have come from a famous wrestling family, but changing the name for the WWE NXT star apparently was his own idea.
Breakker first appeared on stage last September.
However, to the great surprise of fans, the 24-year-old son of WWE Hall of Fame member Rick Steiner made his television debut with a different name.
At the last “Out of Character with Ryan Satin” the reigning NXT champion gave an unexpected answer to the question of using something other than Steiner.
“It was my idea,” he explained. “One day I was just sitting there and they said,‘ Hey, maybe start thinking about some name. Just start brainstorming and incorporate that thought into yourself. ”
“I was known in football for my ability to block attacks,” said Breaker, whose real name is Bronson Rechteiner and who was briefly signed as an undefeated free agent with the Baltimore Ravens. “I used to just try to bury people across the floor. I was just a mean, nasty player.
“When I blocked in football, I tried to break people in half. So, I thought, ‘Well, what about’ The Breaker ‘or something?”
It eventually turned into Brono Breaker, and everything else went down in history as he is now a two-time NXT champion who still preserves his family’s legacy.
Whether it’s through the moves he uses in the ring, the T-shirts he wears at matches, or even his father’s recent involvement in a program with Joe Gacy in which Rick was kidnapped on NXT television, Breaker preserves the family’s legacy.
“It was really cool,” Brecker said of working with his father.
“He has to go down to [WWE Performance Center] and most coaches, if not all of them, either worked with him or worked against him at some point in their careers. So it’s cool to see him catch up with everyone and just get involved in what’s going on. “
However, do not rely on Steiner’s family team, as Breaker says his father has officially retired from the ring.
“He won’t do it,” Brawne said confidently. “He worked in the business for 20 years. Almost all the time he was at the top of the team division or singles. I think he is calm about his career and performance.”
As for his Uncle Scott, that’s a different story.
Asked about the potential for another Steiner family’s dream team, Breaker simply said the old wrestling saying “never say never”.
