Olympic Gold Medallist Gable Steveson recently won his second NCAA Heavyweight Championship. While congratulations are for Steveson’s incredible achievement, Graves wants him to begin the new chapter in his career.
As reported earlier, shortly after his Olympic Gold Medal win in wrestling, Steveson signed a deal with WWE that allowed him to finish his school while training for the company.
Congratulating Steveson on his remarkable career in amateur wrestling, Graves invited the NCAA Heavyweight Champion to the Monday Night Raw.
“Congratulations @GableSteveson on an untouchable amateur career. Now, let’s get that next chapter started. You busy Monday? #wweraw,” Corey tweeted.
Steveson emerged as a surprise pick for the 2021 WWE Draft. He officially signed with the RAW brand in September 2021. The current arrangement allows Stevenson to complete his senior year at the University of Minnesota and continue his training for WWE.
To accommodate Steveson, the company has set up a remote training facility for him near the University of Minnesota campus, where he can work with WWE coaches in his free time outside the class. The Olympic Gold Medallist also has access to the WWE’s Performance Centre in Orlando.
