Gable Steveson’s amazing performance at the Tokyo Olympics last year significantly raised his stock. Since his huge success, he became one of the most in-demand athletes in the world. Steveson is also training with Mr. Kennedy and his students.
After a lot of teases and speculation, WWE managed to sign Gable Steveson to contract last year. He was already drafted to Monday Night RAW as part of the WWE Draft last year.
Gable Steveson also got physical during WrestleMania 38 Night 2. While speaking with Chris Van Vilet recently on his INSIGHT podcast, Mr. Kennedy revealed that he is training Gable Steveson along with his students.
“I have a couple of students right now that have WWE try-outs, one guy that is signed to WWE. [Chris asks who’s that?] That’s Gable Steveson, who’s been training with us. He’s local, he lives in the Twin Cities, and he’s been signed now to Raw for a year, and they really haven’t done much with him. So he just wanted to [try it], he reached out and said, ‘Hey, can I come in and like just hit the ropes and stuff? So we’ve been doing a couple times a week with him, and I’ve got some of my best students working with him.
We will have to wait and see how Gable Steveson will be booked once he’s a regular part of WWE programming. By the looks of it, it still might be a while before he debuts.
