Rick Steiner Surprised Bron Breakker For WWE NXT Title Win
Steiner celebrated with his son after his victory over Tommaso Ciampa
Despite going by the name Bron Breakker on WWE TV, fans are waiting for Bron to adopt the Steiner name, with the NXT Champion being the son of the legendary Rick Steiner, and nephew of former WCW Champion Scott Steiner.
Whilst WWE have not spoken out-and-out of Breakker’s family lineage, there have been more than a few subtle nods, including Rick Steiner joining his son in celebration following Breakker’s NXT Championship win over Tommaso Ciampa.
However, according to Breakker himself in conversation with Bleacher Report, ‘The Dog Faced Gremlin’s appearance was a complete surprise:
"I didn't really know he was coming," Breakker said. "I invited him down and said, 'Hey, do you want to come to the show?' He drove down and surprised me. He showed up and it was cool. It was the first time he's ever seen me work and getting to be a part of it in person. I got to cherish that with my dad and my brother was there, too. It's one of those things you never forget.”
Breakker has adopted several moves and mannerisms from The Steiner Brothers, such as The Steiner Recliner, and the trademark multi-coloured Steiner singlets of the early 90s.
