During a recent episode of Grilling JR with Jim Ross and Conrad Thompson, Ross spoke about The Steiner Brothers run in WWE and added that he had the chance to see Bronson Rechsteiner not too long ago in Atlanta where AEW was for an episode of Dynamite back in February.
Bronson, 22, is the son of Rick Steiner and Scott’s nephew. Ross noted that Bronson has aspirations to get into the NFL but hopes AEW will take a look at him. Bronson has done interviews where he has stated that he wants to follow in his father’s footsteps but he is concentrating on football right now.
“I think it was in Atlanta where I met Rick Steiner’s son,” Ross said. “He came up to me and introduced himself to me back there in the locker room area and of course, I didn’t recognize him [because] I hadn’t seen him since grade school. I guess he’s trying to hook on with an NFL team as a free agent. There is no doubt in my mind that there’s another Steiner in the pipeline. When he’s come along or if he comes along still remains to be seen but [he’s] a good kid. I wish AEW would take a look at him at some point in time if that’s ever in the cards.”
Bronson put up 35 reps on the bench press at Kennesaw State Owls’ pro day earlier this year. The 35 reps would have been the third best at the NFL Scouting Combine of all players and the best out of any running back.
At Kennesaw State, Bronson led the team with 909 rushing yards with an average of 8 yards per carry. He has done some wrestling training with Johnny Swinger in Atlanta but it looks like any full-time wrestling will have to wait until after his football career.
