The WWE Main List debut of Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson might not be too far off.
The 21-year-old recently signed a contract with WWE. Many fans nickname him the next Kurt Angle because of his Olympic background similar to that of the former WWE Champion.
In the latest issue of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer announced that Gable Steveson could debut on the WWE Main List very soon:
“They’re behind him for a lot of reasons, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be a success either. I mean it’s like he’s gonna have the microscope on him and he’ll be up there [on the WWE main roster] too early, that’s for sure. He’s going to be in games too early to be a good worker because they’re going to try to take advantage of that even though I think he’s going full time in May 2022 and, you know at that point, they’re going to be prepare him for the top spots, and they signed him for a deal that pretty much wants him to be there, ”Meltzer said.
