Tough Enough winner and NXT’s Bronson Matthews, real name Josh Bredl, made some social media comments that drew criticism from several WWE talents, and was a subject of discussion within the company as well.
Bredl already had a lot against him considering he was in NXT earning $250,000 from his Tough Enough contract and probably had a target on his back, but his comments didn’t help him at all. It was reported that he’s a good listener and trains very hard, and has a look Vince McMahon is a fan of, but his salary and inexperience were going to have people easily resent him. It’s believed Bredl most likely realized his mistake since he deleted the Tweet, calling the WWE’s “Social Outcasts” stable ‘jobbers’, but dug himself even deeper by adding a ‘LOL’ response to a Kevin Owens tweet.
NXT’s beginner’s promo classes are broken down into groups consisting of: “Girls”, “Teams”, “Big Men”, “Smaller Athletes”, “Foreign Accent”, and “Character.”
Some of the names in the smaller athletes class include Patrick Clark from Tough Enough, Rich Swann and Biff Busick. Zamariah “ZZ” Loupe was noted as the only person currently in the character class.
