NXT Champion Bron Breakker has nothing but praise for Roman Reigns, to the extent that he hopes the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion never loses his title.
Bron Breakker is currently in his second reign as NXT Champion and is nearing 200 days with the title. Arguably the most dominant force in the developmental brand today, Breakker has defeated all-comers including Tomasso Ciampa and Gunther, and more recently unified his title with the NXT UK Championship by overcoming Tyler Bate.
With his impressive run in NXT, it might be expected he would soon set his sights on the main roster and the record-breaking Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. However, it seems that the young star doesn’t want to see The Tribal Chief deposed by anyone anytime soon.
UFC legend Daniel Cormier made an appearance on The Masked Man Show and recalled a recent conversation he had with Breakker, where the up-and-comer explained why he wants to see Reigns keep the title until he’s ready to retire from the ring.
“I was in my locker room last week with Julius Creed, Jay Casper, and Bron Breakker. They flew up. Jay Casper is one of my guys. He used to train in my camp. When I was there, we spent the whole day. I was with those guys and we got in the ring some.
“Breakker tells me, ‘I hope he (Roman Reigns) never loses. I hope that when that belt is off of him, he just walks away from it, like, I don’t need to be the champ no more, there you go, because his character is so over. I don’t want to see that character lose.’ This is a guy who’s going to challenge for that belt at some point. It’s crazy. It tells you what Roman Reigns has become.”
Reigns will next defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Logan Paul at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
