Since his debut for NXT last month, fans have been incredibly impressed with the work that Bron Breakker has been putting in, with many calling him the future of WWE.
The expectations are so big for the 23-year-old that members of the media have been suggesting that Bron should be the man chosen to eventually dethrone Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
In an exclusive interview with GiveMeSport, Tommaso Ciampa spoke about working with Bron Breakker, and the predictions and expectations that fans have for him.
Ciampa said that while the “sky is the limit” for Breakker, fans need to be reminded of the fact that he is still pretty inexperienced at the moment.
It’s tough shoes to fill all around, from family all the way to just the predictions and the expectations and stuff. Hopefully, [Bron Breaker] is able to just keep his head straight on, you know, that’s the hardest part. I think he’s 23/24 years old, fairly new to the wrestling business as far as him actually being in a ring, so I don’t know man. Like the sky is the limit for him, it’ll be interesting to see how he handles the pressure. I think that’s gonna be one of the key component components to it.
Ciampa then spoke about the aforementioned Roman Reigns fantasy booking, again reminding fans about just how new Bron Breakker is to the wrestling business:
I saw the Robin Reigns thing about WrestleMania and all that. [Bron Breakker] hasn’t been on TakeOver yet, you know? He has a he hasn’t main evented a singles match yet. I said it last week on NXT, and it’s kind of just how I feel, like you put him in a ring with a guy like myself who’s 16/17+ years deep and it’s not just like sink or swim at that point. Like, I think the quote I used is “he was going to drown in an ocean of inexperience, and it’s not even about being prepared for the moment and you know, he can’t be prepared for the moment. So hopefully he’s just able to take all the highs as well as he can take the lows because he hasn’t quite hit that point yet.
