Bronson Rechsteiner makes WWE NXT debut, defeats LA Knight

Tonight's premiere of "NXT 2.0" featured the WWE in-ring debut of the son of a pro wrestling legend.

Bronson Rechsteiner made his debut on tonight's NXT, defeating LA Knight in the opening match of the show. Rechsteiner is using the name "Bron Breakker" in WWE. He had changed his name on social media to "Rex Steiner" last week before then changing his handle to Bron Breaker.

Breakker got the win after lifting up Knight for a press slam and then turning it into a powerslam.

Breakker is the son of Rick Steiner and the nephew of Scott Steiner. He signed with WWE as part of the group of recruits that reported to the Performance Center this February.

Breakker played college football at Kennesaw State University. Breakker, who played fullback, signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2020 but was cut before the start of the season.

NXT 2.0 is WWE's revamp of the NXT brand. Knight is facing Pete Dunne, Tommaso Ciampa, and Kyle O'Reilly in a fatal four-way match later in tonight's show to determine a new NXT Champion. The title was vacated by Samoa Joe due to injury.

Breakker interrupted a promo by Knight at the start of tonight's show. Breakker introduced himself to Knight and said he wanted a chance to prove himself. Knight promised to become NXT Champion but said he'd defeat Breakker first.
