Bron is still Bron Breakker, and will probably go to RAW or SmackDown, and get a spot on SummerSlam.

Breakker reminds Grimes what happened the last time someone brought his father into this.

Bron says he thought this would be about respect, but Grimes can say what he wants, with his cheap suit and phony smile, but it won’t change a damn thing because next week Grimes is going to the moon and he won’t like what he finds there because when he gets there, Breakker says he will Spear Grimes in half. Grimes goes on about how he will keep getting up. Bron says he will keep knocking Grimes back down and make him regret this match. Bron says he’s bigger, faster and stronger… Grimes interrupts and says everyone gets it, Bron is bigger, faster and stronger, we all see it, but what Bron doesn’t have is heart, and he doesn’t have Grimes’ heart.

Grimes says that’s not Bron’s fault because it’s just genetics as Bron’s daddy didn’t have heart either, which is why he was never a World Champion, and that’s why… Bron decks Grimes and presses him high in the air above his head.
