Gable Steveson is one of the best wrestlers in the world. He recently won a gold medal at the Olympics and has often been compared to WWE Legend Kurt Angle, who won a gold medal in 1996 (with a broken freakin neck by the way.)
Steveson has been a hot name in the pro wrestling world and somebody who was high on Vince McMahon’s list. WWE has spent the last year or so courting Gable Steveson and has had him attend a number of events as their guest.
We previously reported at The Ringside Roster that Steveson and WWE had inked a deal.
WWE has now officially announced the news and the fact that they have an exclusive agreement with him.
In the company’s first-ever NIL deal, Steveson will join the WWE roster while defending his NCAA title for the University of Minnesota.

This is obviously a huge signing for the company. We’ll have to see what the future in WWE holds for Steveson, but if his career is anything close to Kurt Angle he too will one day be a WWE Legend.
What do you think of WWE signing Gable Steveson? Let us know in the comments.
