Gable Steveson has provided an update on his WWE status, ahead of WrestleMania 38 in April.
Despite getting drafted to WWE Raw in October 2021, Gable Steveson has yet to wrestle for WWE. His brother, Bobby Steveson (Damon Kemp), made his in-ring debut in December, most recently competing against Kushida on 205 Live earlier this month.
Speaking with KSTP’s Darren Wolfson, Gable discussed his Performance Center training, and his aspirations for his own training site. Noting that it’s likely he’ll be at WrestleMania, the Olympic gold medallist and defending NCAA Heavyweight Champion said:
“So I’m still working out all the things with that. I have the opportunity to go down to the Performance Center, stay for a day, and practice. My brother is down there too, so I can go down there and say what’s up. My training site is still getting hit here and is about to be up for good.
“When that time comes I’m going to try and create a wrestling academy, like the Gable Steveson Academy for — like kids can come in and practice our wrestling, and then there can be a WWE ring, there can be a UFC ring. So we’re trying to turn it into a big little thing that gives people an opportunity to grow and be around me too and see how I made to the spot I am today.
“Right when March ends, I’m picking it up. I think I’m, I’ll probably head to WrestleMania and do some — I don’t know what from there, but you’ll see. It just picks up again, there’s no break.”
Steveson is part of WWE’s inaugural class for the new ‘Next In Line’ NIL program, which allows WWE to recruit and develop future performers through collaborative partnerships with college athletes. You can check out the full class here.
