Gable Steveson’s excellent performance at the Tokyo Olympics last year helped establish himself as a well-known name in the world of sports. WWE went the extra mile in getting Steveson to sign a contract as even Vince McMahon personally met up with Steveson to sign him. It seems WWE has huge plans for Gable Steveson as well.
WWE finally managed to sign Gable Steveson to a contract last year and put all speculation to rest as far as where the 21-year-old will go next. It was also reported that Gable Steveson signed a unique contract with WWE, which is exclusive in nature.
Gable Steveson also previously admitted that Brock Lesnar was a huge influence in him signing with WWE as Lesnar’s career path was something Steveson found helpful. Lesnar also gave him once-in-a-lifetime advice during his freshman year in college.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that WWE plans on fast-tracking Gable Steveson to the main roster and then booking him like Brock Lesnar.
“Gable Steveson will also be fast-tracked to the main roster. The idea is for him to be another Brock Lesnar.”
We will have to wait and see whether Gable Steveson will be able to adjust to WWE’s environment and become a huge star there or not first.
