Gable Steveson is now a huge name in the world of sports due to his incredible performance at the Tokyo Olympics. WWE wanted him and they didn’t hide that fact as even Vince McMahon went all out to sign him.
WWE finally managed to sign Gable Steveson to a contract this month and put all speculation to rest as far as where the 21-year-old will go next.
Gable Steveson also recently admitted that Brock Lesnar was a huge influence in him signing with WWE as Lesnar’s career path was something Steveson found helpful.
According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Gable Steveson’s luck seems to be getting better by the day. Steveson is currently the best paid amateur wrestler of all time thanks to the money he won from the Tokyo Olympics, his NFT money and also his guaranteed WWE contract.
Gable Steveson looks to be the best paid amateur wrestler of all-time as he goes into this season at Minnesota. He got $250,000 for winning the gold medal, which, granted is far less than he deserves, he’s making $20,000 a month in NFT money and he’s on a WWE guaranteed contract
WWE is also setting up a remote training facility for Gable, so it will be interesting to see how he will fare in the company once he makes his debut there.
