Recent WWE signee Gable Steveson may be interested in making a return to Minnesota wrestling.
Gable wrestled for the Minnesota Gophers before signing with WWE. There, he won two NCAA heavyweight championships.

In March, after his second NCAA title win, Steveson left his wrestling shoes on the mat as he stepped away from the world of amateur wrestling.
However, Brandon Eggum, coach of Steveson’s former Minnesota Gophers, said the gold medalist might not be done with the sport. Talk to Pioneer presshe mentioned that Steveson is definitely interested in competing at the amateur level.
“I know he would love to wrestle and he loves the competition. Really, it’s about making it work…It would have to be something he works with WWE and Vince McMahon. Those details…it It’s one thing if he says, ‘No way, I’m not doing it…’ But he’s got the eligibility, he’s capable and he has an interest in doing it,” Eggum said.
