Gable Steveson is an Olympian and NCAAA Division I National Champion and there is no doubt that WWE is interested in signing him to a contract.
In August, the young wrestler will represent the United States in the rescheduled 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. He has also trained with the likes of Brock Lesnar in the past and is certainly going to WWE in the future.
While speaking to Minneapolis-based television station KARE 11, Steveson made it clear he wants to work for WWE in the future and also had a very interesting message for WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
“Surreal feeling, to be honest,” Steveson said, recalling his first meeting with Roman Reigns. “He’s one of the guys who I’d always wanted to meet besides The Rock. I met [Brock] Lesnar… Lesnar was one of the guys I always wanted to meet too. Roman Reigns… seeing a guy like that in person and seeing everything he’s done with WWE and in his life, too, it’s crazy. He lives different, he breathes different than a lot of people. He wants to be a winner, he wants to be a champion. Roman Reigns is the top of the top, and I know sooner or later, hopefully by the time I’m in that spot, he’ll hand the belt down respectfully, so I’m ready.”
It is likely WWE will sign Steveson to a developmental deal whenever the Olympian desires to get into the pro wrestling world. We will have to wait and see if he ever faces Roman Reigns for a major title in WWE eventually.
