Gable Steveson is on his way to WWE after inking a big contract. WWE is going to take care of the Olympic Gold Medalist as they are even setting up a remote training facility for him to train while he attends the University of Minnesota.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer suggested that WWE will have Gable Steveson skip the line and bypass NXT, the company’s developmental brand. He could be on the main roster very soon and it will be a sink or swim situation.
“They are big behind him for a lot of reasons, but it doesn’t mean he’s going to be a success, ether. I mean, it’s like he’s going to have the microscope on him and he’s gonna be up there [on the WWE main roster] too soon, for sure. He’s gonna be in matches too soon as far as to be a good worker, because they’re gonna try to capitalize on it although I think he goes full time in May 2022 and, you know at that point they’re gonna be grooming him to the top spots, and they signed him to a deal that pretty much wants him there.”
Only time will tell how things turn out for Gable Steveson in WWE. He has a ton of potential, and he also has a ton of buzz around his name. People like Ronda Rousey an Kurt Angle were able to make big transitions over to the main roster without skipping a beat. We will have to see how Steveson responds to his training.
