WWE NXT superstar Bron Breakker has issued a bold challenge to WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.
Breakker, who recently lost his NXT Championship rematch to Carmelo Hayes at NXT Battleground, made his intentions clear after attacking former NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov backstage on Tuesday night’s episode of NXT.
Breakker claimed that he was not going to let Dragunov talk about being the most intense guy in WWE and that he was going to hold everyone accountable from the top to the bottom. He then called out Rollins, who was the first-ever NXT Champion and is now the reigning World Heavyweight Champion on Raw.
Breakker said that he wanted Seth Rollins to prove himself as the workhorse of WWE by putting his title on the line against him.
“Why did I attack Ilja Dragunov? Because I’m not gonna let Dragunov claim that he’s the most intense guy in WWE. Are you kidding me? I’m going to start holding everyone accountable from the top to the bottom, alright? And speaking of the top, how about our WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth freaking Rollins?
Monday night Rollins, the Workhorse of WWE. You know what? How about you prove it? Because you’re pretty familiar with how we do things here, considering you were the first-ever NXT champion, and I was the most dominant NXT champion. So why don’t you come here and put the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line against me?”H /T Wrestling Unseen

The challenge came out of nowhere and left fans stunned, as Bron Breakker is one of the brightest prospects in NXT and has been compared to his uncle, Hall of Famer Scott Steiner.
Rollins, on the other hand, is one of the biggest stars in WWE and has recently defeated AJ Styles to win the World Heavyweight Championship. He is also rumored to be cast as Captain America in a new Marvel movie.
Will Rollins accept Breakker’s challenge and face him for the World Heavyweight Championship on NXT? Will Breakker be able to pull off an upset and become the first NXT star to win the World Heavyweight Championship?
Or will Rollins show why he is the best in the business and teach Bron Breakker a lesson? Stay tuned for more updates on this potential blockbuster match.
