WWE NXT: 5 Must-See Moments
Bron Breaker Makes His Debut
In the opening match of the new WWE NXT, the son of legend Rick Steiner made his debut. Bron Breaker (Bronson Rechsteiner) came to the ring to do battle LA Knight, who was scheudled to wrestler in the main event later in the evening. In a match that lasted less than four minutes, Breaker used his power to his advantage. In the end, Breaker got the win with a press power slam.
What started out as a tag team match quickly transformed into a 6-women tag match after the interference from a returning Mandy Rose. With a new look of brown hair and Gigi and Jacy by her side, Rose’s stable clashed with Kacy Catanzaro Kayden Carter, and Sarray. The match went back and forth with exciting action resulting in a “This Is Awesome” chant from the crowd. In the end, Rose was able to get the three count on Carter for the win.
Carmelo Hayes Makes A Statement
Just weeks after winning the WWE NXT Breakout Tournament, Carmelo Hayes made his way to the ring. Hayes introduced his long-time friend Trick, who he says will be by his side no matter what happens in the new NXT. Trick challenged Hayes to be less humble and not hold back, to which Hayes agreed. After leaving the ring, Hayes bumped into Duke Hudson who was coming to the ring for his upcoming match. Hayes and Trick rushed the ring and put a beatdown on Hudson before the break.
