GABLE STEVESON: Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson signs with WWE

Posted on 9/06/121 by Colin Vassallo

Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson yesterday tweeted that
he put pen to paper with Dave Meltzer of the Observer
confirming that Stevenson signed with the WWE.

Steveson, whose brother is already signed to a WWE deal, was
at SummerSlam along with fellow Olympic gold medalist Tamyra
Mensah-Stock and the two were given the VIP treatment by the
company, including their own entrance and segment during the
show. Prior to that, Stevenson was also a WWE guest at NXT
Takeover: Stand & Deliver and WrestleMania.

Earlier this year after he won the NCAA championship,
Steveson tweeted a wave emoji and tagged Vince McMahon. He
also posted a photo with McMahon from SummerSlam, writing
that this was the man he wanted to see. Stevenson also has
two big allies in WWE by the names of Paul Heyman and Brock

Last year, the 21-year-old told The Minnesota Daily that his
ultimate goal is to make it to the WWE. Thats my main
goal, and thats my end goal. As years go on it becomes more
realistic, and I can set it happening right when Im done
with college, he said. Its just a matter of me performing
and making sure I get to that point.

Steveson finished the season with 17 wins and zero losses,
stretching his undefeated streak to 34 wins and became the
first Gophers wrestler to win an NCAA title since 2013. He
won the gold medal in wrestling last month in the final half
a second of his match in Tokyo in one of the most dramatic
endings ever. He was behind but managed to score the two
points required to win the match.
