Cameron Grimes: The Stakes Couldn’t Be Higher Against Bron Breakker

Is Cameron Grimes ready to become NXT Champion for the very first time tonight at the Great American Bash?

Ahead of his NXT Championship match against Bron Breakker at the Great American Bash, Cameron Grimes sat down with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about how big of a deal this match against Breakker is, Grimes admits that the stakes couldn’t be any higher.

“People that have followed my story know that the stakes couldn’t be higher here for me,” Cameron Grimes said. “Unfortunately, Bron doesn’t know any better. He doesn’t see it like that. He’s incredible, but he is also a guy that has backup plans. Bron has options. As soon as he loses that NXT title, they’ll bring him up to Raw or SmackDown. For me, it’s different. We talked before about how I dedicated my North American title match at Stand & Deliver for my father.

“I’m still carrying those dreams. I always told him I’d be a champion in WWE. I was only champ for 65 days. That wasn’t enough. Sadly, Melo just had my number. He deserves to be the North American Champion. That’s when I realized, if I am as good as I think I am, I should challenge for the NXT title. Bron thinks I have nothing to lose, but that’s not true. Even if it’s a match when we’re touring in Cocoa or Largo, I don’t want to lose. This is the main event on USA for the Great American Bash, so I have everything to lose. And a lot to gain.”

It was brought up that NXT 2.0 doesn’t have the same energy as the black and gold era of NXT. When Cameron Grimes was asked if that could change if he becomes NXT Champion, Grimes said he looks forward to the challenge of carrying the NXT brand as the champion.

“I look forward to the challenge of carrying this brand,” Cameron Grimes said. “I remember watching the very first NXT TakeOver shows, and I would dream about being in that spot. Then I got here, and now I truly believe I am ready. If not me, then who else? I’m 28 years old. I have 14 years in this business, seven years on television. I’m ready to be champion.”
