Bronson Rechsteiner, the son of former WWE / WCW Tag Team Champion Rick Steiner, appears to be set to make his NXT TV debut.
Rechsteiner signed with WWE in February and trained at the Performance Center. During SmackDown, Rechsteiner featured on the latest teaser for the rebranded NXT. WWE calls it “NXT 2.0” in the latest teaser.
Rechsteiner has changed his Twitter name to “Rex Steiner” and his username to “@rexsteinerwwe”, which appears to be his new name.
Rechsteiner signed a contract with the Baltimore Ravens in April 2020 but was excluded from the squad a few months later. The former Kennesaw State fullback led the team with 909 years of running in his final season averaging 8 yards per carry.
He said last year that he wanted to continue wrestling after football and he went behind the scenes of AEW in early 2020. Jim Ross was pushing for AEW to sign him at the time.
NXT’s relaunch on Tuesday will feature new graphics, new lighting, a new set, and a new presentation with more emphasis on young wrestlers.
