It was recently reported that 2020 Olympic gold medalist winner Gable Steveson has signed with WWE.
During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com commented on WWE’s plans for Steveson:
“They are big behind him for a lot of reasons, but it doesn’t mean he’s going to be a success, ether. I mean, it’s like he’s going to have the microscope on him and he’s gonna be up there [on the WWE main roster] too soon, for sure. He’s gonna be in matches too soon as far as to be a good worker, because they’re gonna try to capitalize on it although I think he goes full time in May 2022 and, you know at that point they’re gonna be grooming him to the top spots, and they signed him to a deal that pretty much wants him there.”
In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer wrote the following:
“It’s already been teased and talked about that (Brock) Lesnar would eventually wrestle him in a passing-of-the-torch type moment at a Wrestlemania.”
