Hulk Hogan has high hopes for one of WWE’s fastest-rising stars.

After honing his craft on WWE’s third brand and winning the NXT Championship twice, NXT Tag Team Titles once, and the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, Bron Beakker exploded onto the main roster in February 2024.

Although his initial foray onto the main roster came on SmackDown, Breakker has excelled since being moved to Raw as part of the Draft. The second-generation star is yet to be pinned or submitted while doing his best to destroy the likes of Ricochet and Ilja Dragunov.

In a new interview with Bill Apter for Sportskeeda, Hulk Hogan was asked about Breakker’s progress, and it’s fair to say the WWE legend is predicting big things.

“He’s something else. He’s wise beyond his years, To be that intense and to know that the red light is on and be able to stay in that zone, it’s very impressive. If they do the right thing with him, that could be the next Stone Cold [Steve Austin], Rock, or Hulk Hogan. He could be the guy,”

Hulk Hogan Sees Similarities With Goldberg

When asked if he sees similarities between Breakker and Goldberg, Hogan said that he did, explaining that the young star will only improve with more experience.

“A lot of similarities. He has that extra spice. Bill had a certain thing. I had a certain thing. Rock had a certain thing. Bron Breakker has all of the above, plus he has a little extra spice on his plate. He’s ramped it up, and he’s just getting started. I can’t even imagine what’s going to happen when he really figures it out.”

He’s beyond the ‘quick kill’ protection. He can go, from what I see. He’s been broke in the correct way. He’s put time in. He’s ready to go. Moving forward, I hope he learns and picks up more wisdom. Some guys are in the business for 15 to 20 years, they think they’re smart and they’re main event guys, but they never figure it out. I hope Bron Breakker figures it out. If he does, he’s going to be hard to deal with.”

As his rise continues it’s been announced that Bron Breakker will challenge Sami Zayn for the Intercontinental Title at Money In The Bank.
