Gable Steveson become highly sought after thanks to his big win at the Tokyo Olympics, where he won a gold medal. WWE was determined to sign him to a contract no matter what and Vince McMahon himself met with Steveson to get it done.
WWE finally got what they wanted as Gable Steveson signed with the company earlier this month. Steveson also had the privilege of training with Brock Lesnar at the University of Minnesota in the past.
While speaking to TMZ, Paul Heyman took credit for Gable Steveson’s success at the Tokyo Olympics after arranging training sessions with Brock Lesnar.
“I am personally responsible for all of Gable Steveson’s right business decisions in his life and his gold medal and his Hodge trophy and his NCAA Division 1 Heavyweight championship.
I had everything with Gable Steveson winning the Olympic gold medal. I arranged for Gable Steveson to train with Brock Lesnar at the University of Minnesota, which helped Gable Steveson win the NCAA Division 1 Heavyweight championship. Then he used my strategy to win the gold medal in the Olympics.”
Gable Steveson and Brock Lesnar are actually good friends in real life. There were also talks of Brock Lesnar and Gable Steveson being involved in a program, but that is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
