Gable Steveson is continuing to tease a future in WWE.
On March 20, the University of Minnesota product defeated Michigan's Mason Parris to become the 2021 NCAA Heavyweight National Champion. The next day, the 20-year-old followed up his 8-4 victory by waving at WWE's Chairman of the Board, Vince McMahon on Twitter.

Gable has made no secret about his desire to possibly pursue a career in wrestling. In addition to sending himself aspirational messages about one day being in the same position as guys like The Rock and Conor McGregor, he sent out and deleted a Tweet about one day ruling WWE.
In January 2020, the Star Tribune wrote the following; "If things go well, Steveson would like to have a career as a “face” in the WWE and possibly Ultimate Fighting like one of his idols, Conor McGregor. But he also said he doesn’t want to get his face repeatedly smashed in."
Gable has trained in the past with WWE Legend and fellow University of Minnesota alumni, Brock Lesnar.
Paul Heyman, in an interview with Esquire Middle East, was asked about WWE's signing of Parker Boudreaux, to which The Advocate said that he has some stiff competition if he hopes to make it to the top, specifically naming Steveson as a potential future star in the business.
"Bobby Steveson is in [Boudreaux's] class. Bobby Stevenson is from the University of Minnesota, Brock's alumni. Bobby Steveson's brother, Gable Steveson, has publicly declared his intention to either go to the Olympics, UFC, or WWE, and he's the number one college wrestler on the face of the planet today."
Fightful will keep you updated should Steveson decide to make the transition into pro wrestling or MMA.
