Johnny Gargano says he’s been impressed by the new NXT Champion Bron Breakker.

Breakker won the title from Tommaso Ciampa earlier this month in the main event of NXT’s New Year’s Evil special.

“Bron Breakker’s a guy that I think I mention all the time,” Gargano said.

“You can pay people to learn how to wrestle, right? You can pay people to do this, but

you can’t pay someone to genuinely love it or you can’t pay people to want to be better at it.

There’s one thing to say, ‘Okay, teach me how to do a wrist lock’ and you’re going to pay me to do that and

I’m going to learn the wrist lock and that’s all I’m going to do.

“It’s another thing to genuinely want to be better and when you find someone who has both those qualities where they want to be better and they are getting better, that’s a diamond.

I feel like Bron Breakker is a diamond.

There’s so many people I can name that I feel like are really taking advantage of the opportunities they’re given right now but Bron is definitely one of them that I believe in.”
