WWE signing Gable Steveson is inching closer to winning his second NCAA Championship with back-to-back victories.
Steveson, an Olympic Gold Medalist, signed with WWE in September 2021 and was drafted to RAW the following month.
In his first match on Thursday morning, Steveson defeated Northern Iowa’s Tyrell Gordon by a score of 25-10.
Gable’s second-round match with Zach Elam of Missouri ended with a technical fall when Steveson made an athletic move to take over the match.
The WWE signing will next face Lucas Davison of Northwestern in an all-Big Ten quarterfinal.
