Bron Breakker stuck to the Heel 101 syllabus in his first post-turn appearance

WWE’s not messing around with any “shades of gray” when it comes to Bron Breakker’s heel character. One week after he turned by taking out new NXT champion Carmelo Hayes while Melo was putting Breakker & his title run over, Bron crashed Chase U’s MVP trophy presentation on the April 11 episode.

Breakker explained he was no longer chasing the belt because the championship was “a curse” on his career, and that he realized he doesn’t need the approval of the “scumbags” in the audience at the Performance Center. He completed the villainous hat trick by spearing fan favorite Andre Chase and ripping the U flag in half.

Props to Shawn Michaels & team for also using this segment to further the story of Duke Hudson & Chase U, with Hudson running off with the MVP trophy he was awarded for ensuring the U beat Schism at Stand & Deliver rather than avenge his “mentor”.
