Goldberg Compares Himself To Bron Breakker
Goldberg and Bron Breakker - cut from the same cloth?
During Bron Breakker’s rise in NXT, obvious comparisons have been made between Breakker and his dad Rick Steiner, and uncle Scott Steiner. Others have pointed out that Breakker is a bit like Goldberg, and Goldberg agrees.
During an appearance on the Roman Atwood podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg noted that he feels Breakker is a younger version of himself:
"Rick Steiner’s son, who’s now Bron Breakker, who’s the champion of NXT. It’s kind of like the farm… it’s not the farm league, I’ll get lambasted for that. But it’s another segment of WWE of the new up and comers basically. Well, he’s me basically. He’s spearing dudes and they wanted him to jackhammer people,” said Goldberg. “He’s the son of one of my best friends and I love this kid. He went up and he tried to play for Baltimore, I think he was a free agent for the Ravens. The kid is unbelievably athletic but he’s one of the smartest kids, man. He’s knowledgeable in the business because he grew up with it.
“I was hanging out with him and his dad when he was Gage’s age. Now look at him. He’s calling me last night and we’re talking about the business and he’s like ‘Man, if Gage ever needs anybody to make a phone call for him, I’ve got a rolodex of these coaches.’ I’m like, is this really Steiner’s son man? I remember when he was Gage’s age. It’s cool, it’s cool how it’s all cyclical and we’re all taking care of each other. You’ve got great friends and a great group, even through the generations they all take care of each other.”
