We’ll call those lofty goals. It is rare to see someone who comes off like a true prodigy in wrestling. When you do find one though, it can make for a very special situation because you see them flying up the charts in the blink of an eye. There have not been very many of them over the years and now WWE might have another one on their hands. It turns out they have some big plans for him too.

During this year’s WWE Draft, Gable Steveson was drafted to Monday Night Raw despite not yet wrestling a professional match. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE plans to have Steveson become a regular after college wrestling season ends in March. The current plan is to have Steveson make his in-ring debut at WrestleMania. There is no word on when he will be making his first appearance on WWE TV.

Steveson could be a star. Check out what he and other Olympians have done in WWE:

Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson is drafted to Raw: Raw, Oct. 4, 2021

Opinion: These are some big plans and I’m curious to see how well it goes. Steveson has the base down as well as can be expected and now it depends on how he takes to the WWE styles. It is going to be intimidating putting him in the ring in a stadium that holds 100,000 people, but this could be the start of something very good. The potential is there, but now they are going to have to execute it well.

What do you think of the idea? How do you see it going? Let us know in the comments below.
