According to Gable Steveson’s wrestling coach, Brandon Eggum, the newly-signed WWE star is still interested in wrestling for the University of Minnesota if it can be worked out.
Steveson won his second Dan Hodge trophy this past March, and was believed to have been retired from NCAA Heavyweight competition.
However, as Eggum told Pioneer Press, that might not be the case:
“I know he would like to wrestle, and he loves competing,” Eggum said. “Really, it comes down to making that work. It would have to be something he works out with the WWE and Vince McMahon. Those details … it hasn’t gotten that far. It’s one thing if he said, ‘No way, I’m not doing it.’ … But he has the eligibility, he’s capable and he has interest in doing it.”
