WWE NXT Champion Bron Breakker defeated Grayson Waller in the Steel Cage main event of Saturday’s NXT Vengeance Day event at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. Breakker recently spoke with Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso about what the match meant to him and how it felt to be on the road with the brand.

“It was refreshing to go out and wrestle in front of a crowd like we had in Charlotte,” Breakker said. “That city is known for being great wrestling fans, so it was cool that they were into NXT. And that match was a reminder of who I am and what I’m about. I want to represent this brand and be the leader. I’m working to put a stamp on it. You know what you’re going to get, which is my very best.”

Carmelo Hayes appeared on Vengeance Day to confront Breakker, who was celebrating on top of the cage. Hayes vs. Breakker will now be held at NXT Stand & Deliver during WrestleMania 39 Weekend. The match will be significant because Breakker and Hayes both signed with WWE in the same Performance Center Class and are regarded as top current-generation talents. Breakker made a comment about the upcoming match.

“It’s time. I have a lot of respect for Carmelo Hayes, and this has been a long time coming. It’s time to settle the debate on who is the best,” Breakker said.
