Tommy Dreamer has high praise for the latest edition of WWE NXT, shouting out two stars in particular for their work on the show.
Cross-pollination between WWE’s main roster and NXT has become increasingly common in recent months, and last week, former NXT Champion Bron Breakker issued a shocking challenge to Seth Rollins for his newly-won World Heavyweight Championship.
On the June 13th episode of NXT, Rollins accepted Breakker’s challenge, and the two are set to face off in a championship match next week.
Speaking on the latest edition of Busted Open, Tommy Dreamer heaped praise on both Rollins and Breakker for their roles on the show.
“I really liked Bron Breakker. I liked Bron Breakker’s look, his beard. The darkened lights. I liked how during his kind of mission statement, out came his foe that he had hurt, and that little bit of business got interrupted then eventually by Seth Rollins. I enjoyed it. I think it will be a very, very good match. I enjoyed Seth’s explanation. Seth’s just kind of like, ‘You know how it works here. I don’t need to do this, but you know what? I’m gonna do this, because I was just like you.'”
Continuing, Dreamer said he enjoyed everything about the promo segment and explained why he believes the upcoming bout is one of the biggest in NXT history.
“[I] enjoyed everything I saw last night in the promo, in the build, and it will perhaps be one of the biggest matches in NXT. I don’t know if there will be any bigger, or if there have been any bigger in the sense of, ‘Here comes the world champion, gonna defend his title against someone down in NXT.’ And they’ve talked about the crossovers on, what? A public conference call about the future of WWE? We’re seeing it. I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying a lot of what I saw in NXT last night.”
