Former WWE champion Drew McIntyre recently participated in a media scrum to discuss all things pro-wrestling, where the Scottish Warrior told Inside the Ropes that he sees a lot of potential in several NXT 2.0 talents, including the Creed brothers and Bron Breakker. Hear McIntyre’s full thoughts on the subject below.
Has major praise for Bron Breakker:
“Yeah, I was watching the first show and live tweeting along as I was paying close attention. I was curious how the new format would look. There are some talents that really caught my eye. Steiner’s kid, Bron Breakker caught my attention right away. He is clearly an athlete of a high level. He looks great, talks like his uncle, which is awesome. I see a big future for him. If he stays on the right path [and] keeps working hard like he’s clearly doing.”
Talks the Creed Brothers:
“The Creed Brothers, they certainly got my attention as well. So yeah, I’m excited to see what the future holds for NXT and potential future opponents and WrestleMania main eventers.”
Tells young NXT talent to stay the course:
“Stay the course, don’t get ahead of yourself. You don’t have to have everything right now, especially if you’re kind of inexperienced. Make the most of the time you’ve got in NXT, especially the non-televised shows. Remember, it’s 52 weeks a year. I used to drive myself crazy if everything wasn’t happening right now, but it’s the long game in WWE because we are nonstop, no reruns, no offseason, every single week. Just take your time, learn your craft, be patient, and don’t believe everything everyone says on social media be it positive or negative. Just listen to the people around you. They’ve been around for a long time and it’ll be fun.”
