Welcome to the team. There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster today but only a handful are able to stand out above the rest so quickly. It takes a special something to make someone have that kind of an impact and oftentimes a sports background will do the trick. That is the case with a signed WWE star, and now we know a lot more about what to expect from him.
Back in September 2021, NCAA Heavyweight Wrestling Champion and Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson signed with WWE, albeit under a unique contract. Steveson was able to continue his education and college wrestling career, though at least the latter has finished. Steveson appeared on the MMA Hour and revealed that his WWE start date is just after WrestleMania, though no date was given. He also said that he planned on getting in the ring soon after WrestleMania, which is taking place on April 2 an3 3.
Opinion: It’s nice to see that Steveson is finally starting to get ready for his professional career, as his signing felt like it was such a long time ago. Having Steveson around should shake things up a lot and I want to see what he can do in WWE. Steveson is not the kind of prospect that WWE finds every day, but if he is even close to what Kurt Angle could do, WWE has found a gem.
What do you think of Steveson? How will he do in WWE? Let us know in the comments below
