Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported Rechsteiner receiving a tryout, the results of which will be declared soon. However, WWE COO Triple H confirmed the youngster is making his way to the WWE.

“I’m incredibly excited about Parker Boudreaux coming in, Bronson Rechsteiner, we have a lot of people coming in the door. Just as I am on people who have been here for awhile.” The Game namedropped Bronson, the nephew of one of his biggest rivals.

Getting signed to NXT is massive news for the son of Rick Steiner. He will undoubtedly train under the Performance Center coaches for a long time until he’s ready to debut in the ring.

With Parker Boudreaux already on board, WWE have two incredible prospects in the ‘Next Brock Lesnar’ and Bronson Rechsteiner.

Bronson had been pursuing a career in football. He played for Kennesaw State, where he rushed for 909 yards last year as a fullback, averaging 8 yards per carry, according to Comicbook.

The Baltimore Ravens picked him up after he went undrafted in the NFL Draft but waived his contract soon.

Bronson made his wrestling debut at AWF/WOW Wrestle Jam 8 in Ringgold, Georgia. He faced Jamie Hall, an independent wrestler training at Seth Rollins’ Black and Brave Academy.

Interestingly, his uncle, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner, was in his corner for his debut match. He pulled off an impressive gorilla-press slam and won with the infamous Steiner Recliner, a version of the camel clutch.

With the right guidance and the refining of his skill set, Bronson Rechsteiner can be a bigger star than his father and maybe bigger than his uncle. Rick and Scott have set the bar very high, and Bronson has his work cut out for him.
