Brock Lesnar came from the University Of Minnesota where he was a very powerful college wrestler. WWE obviously wanted him and as history has hold, it worked until he left for football. After a run with the UFC, Lesnar came back to the company. Lesnar never left his roots at U of M and is currently helping train another stand-out from his alma mater.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Lesnar trained with
Gable Steveson recently. The true freshman already has a 20-0 record and is a #1 seed in the country.
Lesnar has brought Steveson backstage in WWE before when Gable was still in high school. Paul Heyman is said to know him as well as Gerald Briscoe. It was said that Lesnar might do more training with Steveson down the line too.
Due to WWE’s desire to “not make college wrestling their enemy,” the company has a policy where they will not recruit a Division I wrestler until they have completed their four years of college. Therefore, we might have a few years to wait for Gable Steveson, but WWE is reporteldy already looking very heavily in his direction as another possible big star out of Minnesota.
