It’s a family thing. There are certain wrestling families that have been around for a very long time and whose names are going to be immediately known. Some of these families go on for more than one generation as some of the wrestlers’ children get into the business as well. That was the case again recently, and now one of the new generation has an accomplishment to share with the family.
The main event of this week’s NXT New Year’s Evil saw Bron Breakker defeated Tommaso Ciampa to win the NXT Title. WWE has posted a video from after the show went off the air, featuring Breakker celebrating with his father, Rick Steiner. The video’s caption identifies Steiner by name, though Breakker has never been directly identified as part of the Steiner family on NXT TV. Ciampa also shook Steiner’s hand as he left the arena.
It was an awesome moment. Check out the celebration, the title match, and the family in action:
Opinion: This was a cool moment and the kind of thing that I love seeing. I know Breakker has never been acknowledged as a Steiner and can’t be due to various legal issues over the trademark, but it is nice to see the family recognized in some way. Breakker has a lot of potential to become the next breakout star and it would be great to see his family as apart of that.
