Gable Steveson Not Closing The Door On 2024 Olympics, Confirms He Will Be Bypassing NXT


Future WWE wrestler Gable Steveson left his boots on the mat this past Saturday after winning his second-straight NCAA heavyweight championship.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour on Wednesday, he said he’s not closing the door on returning to amateur wrestling.


“For now, I’m done. For now, I’m going to focus on WWE, go to WrestleMania, do all those things,” Steveson said. “I know that competitive itch is going to come back and who knows? It might be at the 2024 Olympic trials when I show up again, but I do feel like I will put the shoes back on just not for a little bit.”

“When that time comes, I’ll only be 24. I feel like I still have a lot left to prove,” Steveson said about possibly participating in the 2024 Olympics. “I hope to maybe show up and if I don’t, 2028 is there and I’ll only be 28.” 

Steveson stated that he plans on getting on TV really soon. 

“My exact start date is in the middle of April. So, they’re letting me finish school, they’re letting me do my thing,” Steveson continued. “I’m planning on getting on TV and getting in the ring on TV really, really soon.”

He also confirmed that he will be bypassing NXT and instead, he will be heading straight to the RAW brand.
