WWE fans were shocked to see Gable Steveson appear on NXT this week. He told Eddy Thorpe that he would be glad to help him train for his upcoming match against Damon Kemp, who happens to be Steveson’s real-life brother. That connection to NXT wasn’t the only reason why Gable Steveson showed up at Gold Rush.

WWE signed Gable Steveson to a deal a long time ago, but he never debuted. Despite being drafted by WWE RAW in 2022, he did not make one single appearance on the show after that. Now, it seems that the time for Gable Steveson’s WWE run is set to begin.

Ringside News reached out to confirm Gable Steveson’s situation with WWE. It was very interesting that he showed up in NXT this week, as he offered assistance to the man who is facing his brother in a RAW Underground match.

A tenured member of the WWE creative team confirmed with us that Gable Steveson is “in the plans,” but no further information was given. Considering how WWE’s rosters have mingled in recent memory, it wouldn’t be any surprise to see Gable Steveson find his way onto any WWE television show he likes.


The 2024 Olympics Games are set to go down in Tokyo, Japan this year. Gable Steveson has already expressed a desire to unretire from amateur wrestling, with his eyes on the Games. Only time will tell if he has another Olympic gold medal to wear around his neck by the end of the Summer. It is also possible that he could do the Olympics while appearing for WWE, but taking bumps in the squared circle might put his body at risk.

Gable Steveson showed up on RAW several months ago, where he helped Kurt Angle in a big segment. You can check out that clip below for a refresher, but it’s obvious that Gable Steveson is more than comfortable performing in front of big WWE crowds already.

Only time will tell what Gable Steveson can do in WWE. He has truckloads of potential, and the company has waited long enough to finally get a chance to book him.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
