Gable Steveson Says He Will Go Straight To The WWE Main Roster

Gable Steveson, who made history at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics when he became the first-ever heavyweight in the U.S. since 1992 to win a gold medal in the men’s freestyle 125lbs wrestling event and who just signed with the WWE a few days back, recently spoke with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour on a number of topics, which includes does he have any plan to compete at the 2024 Olympics in Paris, France as well as the length of his current WWE contract.

Gable Steveson said:

“[Whether I wrestle in them] just depends how my contract goes.” “I can’t say too much. I don’t know what I’m going to do yet. That’s a longways away. It is three years, but I’m always ready. It all depends on my obligation with the WWE. After this year I’m 100% with the WWE. And if I re-sign, I’m 100% with them. I’m not the boss of the situation, so I can’t say.”

Gable Steveson then talked about the terms of his WWE contract and how he would be allowed to compete for both the WWE and the NCAA at the University of Minnesota at the same time.

Gable Steveson said:

“It is allowed, yep.” “It could [happen]. It’s likely, very, very, likely. But who knows? I don’t know what day. It could be Monday Night Raw, today, or it could happen on Friday Night SmackDown.”

Gable Steveson then talked about how he thinks he will be going straight to the main roster in WWE.

Gable Steveson said:

“There is, I think, there is a very big chance I might go straight to the main roster and not go to NXT.” “I was open to anything, but with the way things are going, I think I’m going to jump straight to the main roster. And I know there’s a lot to learn and I’m ready to soak everything in like a sponge and just be ready to go out and put a good show on for the crowd.”
