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. It is also very likely that his name will spark a bidding war between WWE and the UFC. He is also teasing the possibility that the NFL might get him to sign on the dotted line. Obviously, the world is open for the Olympic Gold Medalist.
Gable Steveson also had a tremendous performance at the Tokyo Olympics, as he won the gold medal in the 125kg freestyle category. There is no doubt his stock has risen significantly after Steveson’s huge win.
Apart from WWE, even the UFC has shown interest in signing him. While speaking with MMA Fighting, Gable Steveson made it clear he is interested in becoming a UFC Champion in the future.
Who wouldn’t want to be the baddest man on the planet? Who wouldn’t want to hold that UFC championship belt? I’m holding the gold medal and I’m the baddest wrestler in the planet. Why wouldn’t I want to go there and be the baddest UFC heavyweight champion?”
WWE and the UFC are already set for some big competition when it comes to securing Gable Steveson. He could always choose to return to the University of Minnesota and wrestle there. Being only 21 years of age, the sky is the limit for Steveson, so we will have to wait and see whether he will sign with WWE or UFC in the future.
