Gable Steveson is currently one of the most sought after athletes in the entire world as WWE is definitely interested in signing him to a contract. It is also very likely that his name will spark a bidding war between WWE and the UFC. Even Bellator has shown interest in signing him.
Gable Steveson also had a tremendous performance at the Tokyo Olympics, as he won the gold medal in the 125kg freestyle category. There is no doubt his stock has risen significantly after Steveson’s huge win. Now it seems WWE is taking an extra step in ensuring that they sign Gable Steveson.
While speaking to The Sun, Steveson talked about potentially signing with WWE and becoming a WWE Superstar. Steveson revealed that Vince McMahon personally reached out to him about joining the company.
“I haven’t really thought about what’s next. I told everybody I was going to come home and sit down for a little bit and just relax myself and just pick what’s best for me and what’s next. I could go for double gold in 2024, I could see Vince McMahon – who has reached out to me personally to go out there to do WWE. Or I could go see Dana White. I mean, even the [Minnesota] Vikings gave me a message. The options are open, my doors are open. I’m gonna pick the best option. But as of right now, I’m not sure. I’m gonna keep searching. I have the world to explore and I’m just gonna step my foot in that door and open it all and explore myself.”
Seth Rollins already stated that he would love to train Gable Steveson should he come to WWE. Gable Steveson also recently confirmed that he will be present at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view. Being only 21 years of age, the sky is the limit for Steveson, so we will have to wait and see whether he will sign with WWE in the future.
