Earlier this year, the WWE brought the 'Tough Enough' series back to our screens and, three months on from the finale, the male winner of the show is beginning to make his mark.
That's after numerous outlets, including NoDq.com, reported that Joshua Bredl had debuted a new ring name during the NXT live event in Orlando, Florida on Thursday.
Bredl, alongside Sara Lee, came out on top in the series after displaying his wrestling and mic talent, and WWE fans have been eagerly awaiting his first steps into the business ever since. Check out the Tweet below to see the direction he and NXT have chosen.

As alluded to in the photo, Bredl apparently revealed his new 'Bronson Matthews' character during an in-ring interview with NXT's backstage interviewer and ring announcer Dasha Fuentes.
it also looks like the Colorado-native has changed his Twitter handle in advance of what could be a big NXT push.
Unfortunately, whilst 'The Yeti' may have won over fans during his time on Tough Enough, it doesn't look like his new name has gone down well with the WWE Universe.
The reaction on social media hasn't exactly been kind. Although at least it looks like the creatives behind the scenes are taking the brunt of the criticism rather than the wrestling hopeful himself...
If Bredl/Matthews can win over fans with his new character, there is no doubt he has the talent that could make him a rising star of the business.
The former NFL hopeful weighs in at 290 pounds and, although his talent is still raw, he possesses all the qualities needed to go a long way.
