Ex-Olympian Gable Steveson Pursues MMA, NFL Offers

Gable Steveson, a former WWE wrestler and Olympian, could take up MMA or the NFL. 

Stevenson made his name by winning gold at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He has a 67-2 record in NCAA. His success carried him to a deal with the WWE in 2021. Gable found his time much tougher than expected, only having a single bout. He appeared at  WrestleMania 38 Night 1 in 2022. The next day, he took on Chad Gable, performing a suplex on him.

There had been high hopes for Stevenson since he was the first gold medal Olympian signed by WWE since Kurt Angle. But his time ended, as he was released this month. He is training at the Kill Cliff FC, where former UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler is known for attending. Ariel Helwani teased a big move for the wrestler following a statement made by the wrestler’s manager. 

“Gable Steveson is very grateful for the opportunities he had with WWE and would like to thank everybody in the organization who helped him get there. He would also like to thank all the fans for supporting him on his professional wrestling journey. Now, Gable is ready to resume competing against elite-level competition and looks forward to sharing big news with you all very soon.”
