They have their eyes on them. There are a lot of wrestlers under the WWE umbrella and some of them have some very bright futures. You can see the ones that WWE wants to turn into something bigger as the company puts in the extra effort for them. On rare occasions, you can see someone who looks poised to become one of the next mega stars though and now WWE has a pair of them in mind.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is looking at Gable Steveson and Bron Breakker as two wrestlers who will be given superstar pushes as soon as they debut. Steveson is an Olympic gold medalist in freestyle wrestling and a two time NCAA Heavyweight Champion. Breakker is a two time and reigning NXT Champion, as well as the son of WWE Hall of Famer Rick Steiner. Both appeared over WrestleMania weekend, though there is no word on when either will appear on the main roster full time.
Opinion: This is something that makes all the sense in the world, as WWE knows what they have here. Steveson is basically the reincarnation of Kurt Angle, at least in the amateur wrestling world, and Breakker is the Steiner Brothers rolled into one. Where else are you going to find two people like that in their early 20s? Push the heck out of them and see what they can do, because you might not ever get that kind of a chance again.
What do you think of the two of them? Which one has the brighter future? Let us know in the comments below.
