You might need to get it together. There are a lot of moving parts in WWE and sometimes it seems like things are a little bit messy. You will see stories that suggest that WWE does not exactly have it together backstage, as it feels like there are communications issues abounding. It seems that was the case again, as a wrestlerwas written into a show without actually being around.

Earlier this month, WWE held the second night of the 2021 WWE Draft. There were several moves made throughout the Draft, including more than one surprise. The final Monday Night Raw pick was used on Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson, who has yet to wrestle a match with WWE. According to Fightful Select, Steveson was listed on the show’s itinerary for the night and included him making an entrance. However, Steveson was not at the building and there is nothing to suggest he was ever scheduled to be there. Steveson is not expected to debut for the company until after college wrestling season ends in the spring.

This would have been a surprise debut. Check out some of WWE’s best debuts ever:

NXT Superstars’ surprise debuts: NXT Top 5, Sept. 29, 2019

Debuts of the decade: WWE Top 10, Dec. 15, 2019

WWE Top 10 - WWE Debuts

Opinion: This really does seem to be the trend for WWE: problems with one side communicating with the other. Why would Steveson be listed as taking part in the show if he was never going to be there in the first place? Isn’t that something WWE should have known about when they put the script together for the night? It isn’t a major problem or anything close, but it makes WWE look like a mess backstage.

How does this look for WWE? How will Steveson do as a pro? Let us know in the comments below.
