Gable Steveson talks WWE future & return to amateur

Former Gophers national champion Brock Lesnar continues to
dominate the WWE scene but he may soon have some University
of Minnesota company in sports entertainment. Two-time
national champion and Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson
continues his training in WWE and is eager to make his in-
ring debut.

“I want to go out there on tv. I want to be the person
people thought I was and I don’t want any doubt in my mind
that I’m not,” Steveson told KSTP Sports Director Joe

Steveson made an appearance at Wrestlemania 38 but hasn’t
had his first televised match yet. He continues to train at
the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

“I’m getting the hang of doing everything the correct way –
landing right, match psychology, everything in between. I’m
flourishing and hopefully they see it, too.”

The WWE is filled with showmen but that’s not something you
see everyday in the amateur ranks. Steveson changed that a
bit with his trademark backflip after winning big matches.

“I’m excited because people haven’t really seen the real
Gable because amateur wrestling kind of shelves a portion
because we’re used to guys being disciplined.”

While professional wrestling is his future, Steveson hasn’t
put amateur wrestling completely behind him either. Steveson
recently returned to amateur wrestling dominating his three
matches at the U.S. Open Wrestling Championships in Las
Vegas. The 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris are not out of the
question but he’d need approval from the WWE.

“They’ve approved the fact that I can chase a couple
tournaments,” Steveson said. “I think time will tell the
Olympics story. Who knows because it’s a year away but I
think we’re in good strides to make that progression.”
