Gable Steveson Debuts On WWE NXT WWE

Gable Steveson has made his NXT television debut on tonight’s first week of two weeks of special editions, NXT Gold Rush.

Appearing in a backstage segment, Gable Steveson popped up to offer some very important support to Eddy Thorpe.

Offering to train him ahead of the big reincarnation of ‘Raw Underground’ in two weeks on NXT, Gable Steveson said that if anyone could train him to take on Damon Kemp, it’s him.

In case you didn’t know, Damon Kemp’s real name is Bobby Steveson.

Yes, in real life, Gable Steveson is Damon Kemp’s younger brother!

Earlier on NXT tonight (June 20) it was revealed that Kemp had determined what stipulation he wanted for his rematch against Eddy Thorpe.

Damon Kemp said that he wanted to bring a ‘Raw Underground match’ to NXT which he specified meant:

“Just me and you in a twenty by twenty ring, no ropes, you can only win by knockout, TKO or submission.”

The match is set for two weeks, after the end of NXT’s run of special editions, NXT Gold Rush.

Elsewhere set for tonight’s special edition, week one of NXT Gold Rush, multiple main roster appearances after the show kicked off with Mustafa Ali serving as special guest referee in the North American Championship match.

Also, Dana Brooke took on Cora Jade after their bubbling rivalry boiled over last week in a backstage encounter went on to be a brutal battle in the ring and Carmelo Hayes came face to face with Baron Corbin in a spicy promo exchange.

Still to come, in the night’s main event, Seth Rollins is scheduled to put his WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line against NXT star Bron Breakker.
