Ever since turning heel this spring, Bron Breakker has been on a tear through the NXT locker room, and that included a beatdown of Ilja Dragunov Tuesday night.
But the former NXT Champion didn't stop there, issuing a direct challenge to current World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, who has called himself the workhorse of WWE, daring him to put his money where his mouth is and put his world title on the line. Breakker noted that Rollins was the first NXT Champion, while Bron considered himself the most dominant champ.
Rollins won the World Heavyweight Championship less than two weeks ago at Night of Champions, becoming the inaugural champ after defeating AJ Styles in the tournament finals. He successfully defended the title on Raw Monday night against Damian Priest, following through on his promise to be a fighting champion right away.
Breakker held the NXT Championship for nearly a year before losing it to Carmelo Hayes at Stand & Deliver in April. He lost a rematch to Hayes at Battleground last week for the title.
If this match is made official, it would seemingly disprove what Triple H said when he unveiled the World Heavyweight Championship this spring, claiming it would be exclusive to Raw, as the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship is supposedly exclusive to SmackDown.
Regardless, if Rollins accepts, this would continue a trend of main roster wrestlers travelling to NXT to compete, with Apollo Crews, Jinder Mahal and the New Day doing stints there earlier this year, and free agents Mustafa Ali and Baron Corbin and Raw superstar Dana Brooke competing there this week.
