Gable Steveson was drafted to Monday Night RAW in October 2021, but the Olympic gold medalist has yet to make his televised debut for WWE. It appears that Steveson has something in mind for his much-anticipated debut.
The 21-year-old sat down with KTSP to talk about amateur wrestling career and professional wrestling aspirations. He also teased a potential appearance at WrestleMania 38 in Arlington, Texas.
“It’s not slowing down. Right when March ends I am going to be picking it up. I think I am going to head to WrestleMania, and probably do something. I don’t know what from there, you’ll see. It just picks up from there, there is no break.
“I do things here and there, there are sometimes I will go to Monday Night Raw, and I will show up and I’ll be in the back. Just sit around, and a lot of those times I am really just soaking it in.
“I’ll look at what Brock does throughout the whole time, I’ll look at Big E, I look at how they handle themselves, and keep it so when my time comes I am already hip to everything and I am ready to go.
“When I go to them, you really never see me on the stage. If someone takes a picture of me backstage, you’ll see me backstage, but I am really there just soaking in the energy. Like, pin-pointing everything they do and everything I see.
“There’s times where, I follow Kurt Angle on Instagram. He’ll post a video and I am looking at how he looks, how he talks, how he moves. So, when it’s my time I am perfecting it already.”
Steveson won gold at the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. With this new championship, Steveson became the first American super-heavyweight to win freestyle Olympic gold since Bruce Baumgartner in 1992.
