Bron recently talked to The Sporting News about the similarities between wrestling and football. The NXT champ said he has always wanted to compete in WWE. Breakker said the move was tough, but it was nothing he wasn’t prepared for due to his NFL experience.

“Wrestling is hard and it’s tough. Some things came naturally to me, though. There’s a lot of movements in the sport that both can transition over, like footwork, speed, and explosiveness. There’s a lot of similarities there that transition over to pro wrestling. definitely hit some bumps along the way; I had to earn my stripes, man. I had to hit the ropes and just get to work.”

Bron Breakker was a standout football star in college for the Kennesaw State Owls. He moved on to sign with the Baltimore Ravens in April of 2020. Breakker’s NFL stint was short-lived as he was released by the team just four months later. That is where his wrestling journey began.
