WWE NXT Champion Bron Breakker appeared on Ryan Satin’s “Out of Character” podcast to talk about his Goldberg tattoo, signing with WWE, working with Triple H, how his dad and uncle Rick and Scott Steiner influenced his career, how Kevin Nash helped open the door for him in WWE and more.
Breakker was an amateur wrestler and played football in college. He was asked if he knew he was going to be a pro wrestler:
“I was focused on those things during the time that I was doing them, but in the back of my mind, I always knew that I was going to be a professional wrestler. My dream was to be right here where I’m at.”
Bron talking about being a fan of Goldberg:
“He was one of my favorite wrestlers of all time. Growing up, I had a few favorites. Triple H was probably my all time favorite, and obviously, my dad and uncle too.”
On how he got into WWE:
“I told him, (Rick Steiner), ‘I’m ready to do this. Like, let’s do it right now. I’m ready for this’. He’s like, ‘All right. I’ll see what I can do for you.’ He called Kevin Nash, and then Kevin Nash put the word out to Triple H that I was interested in coming down and trying out if they’d have me. I came down to try it out in November of 2020. I got signed shortly after that and then we were off and running.”
On if his dad would perform in the ring with him:
“No. He won’t do it. I think he’s just at peace with his career. He’s satisfied with what he was able to accomplish and be able to just walk away and transition to other stuff. He’s been on the school board now for like, coming up on 20 years if he gets reelected this year, and he’s been doing real estate for a long time.”
