Gable Steveson is coming to WWE Raw in the near future after being drafted by the brand in the 2021 WWE Draft.
Steveson will finish up his career at the University of Minnesota before officially transitioning to WWE, but plans are already in place for him to begin his WWE training while he continues to compete at Minnesota.
Speaking on WWE After The Bell, Steveson named the top guys he's looking forward to facing once he's in a WWE ring.
"I'm looking to mix it up with Roman. I really like Roman right now, what he's doing. He's perfect, he has the look, the talk, everything about him is perfect. I'm looking to mix it up with him and obviously, Lesnar. We have two NCAA champions in our own city getting after it. I'd like a face-to-face with Brock Lesnar and a face-to-face with Roman Reigns. Those guys are doing a good job. I am on Monday Night Raw, so right now, I'd like to take care of Big E because he's the champion. I'm title seeking, I've always been a title seeker. Gold medal, NCAA championship, anything else I've accomplished and now that WWE belt, whether it's Monday night, Friday night, I love to be that person that people show up to watch. Wherever Gable is, that show ends up being perfect," he said.
Vic Joseph mentioned the possibility of Steveson stepping in the ring with Shelton Benjamin, to which Steveson responded by saying, "Can't forget about Shelton. I'd love to have a thing with Shelton, get after it, and go from there just because it's two Minnesota people. He was a heavyweight All-American at Minnesota and he was a phenomenal wrestler and phenomenal in WWE. I'd love to mix it up with him and put on a good show."
Corey Graves brought up Gable Steveson vs. Chad Gable, which prompted Steveson to say, "Chad Gable because my name is Gable too. There can be two Gables but, you know, is there really?"
It is unknown when Steveson will officially make his WWE debut.
