An Olympic gold medalist has just inked a new deal with WWE.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that Gable Steveson has signed a contract with WWE. No additional details were given in regards to his possible start date or whether Gable will return to the University of Minnesota for his senior year.
Earlier today Steveson tweeted out that he had just put pen to paper, but didn't say any more.

Steveson won the gold medal for wrestling at the 2020 Olympic Games. He also captured the Big Ten and NCAA National Championships this past year.
The 21-year old has not been shy about voicing his desire to one day wrestle in the WWE. In addition to making remarks online, Steveson attended last month's SummerSlam and has said that Vince McMahon has reached out to him before.
Last week, Gable's brother, Bobby, was unveiled as one of six new recruits signed to the WWE Performance Center.
