“We got the beginning of the match, where you can tell I’m serious but I’m out there trying to enjoy myself. And then as the mask goes on you can tell like a character builds, like you can see like if I take you down right away I’m gonna give the crowd a look and they’re gonna cheer.
And then I’m like refreshed, and then I’m gonna let you up. So it’s like step after step after step. It’s cool, it’s like, it’s just like my thought process and how I go about matches.”
Gable Steveson said he would love to follow in the footsteps of his favorite star, The Rock. Dwayne Johnson competed at a high level at the University of Miami. Steveson is looking to follow that same path to superstardom.
