Kurt Angle On Who Could Be The Next Brock Lesnar

Speaking on his Kurt Angle Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has given his thoughts on who has the potential to be the next Brock Lesnar in WWE.

Interestingly, Kurt Angle explained that the person he thinks could be the next Brock Lesnar isn’t even signed to WWE right now, being NCAA Champion Gable Stevenson:

“I think he’s going to be a big star. Look at his look. If he adapts to pro wrestling and picks it up like Brock Lesnar, he’s going to be exactly like Brock Lesnar. I think he needs to take the chance, whether he goes to MMA or WWE, one or the other, but he’s got to do one of them. I think he is a future star regardless of what he does. He’s got a great look to him, great athlete.”

Gable Stevenson was pictured at ringside for NXT TakeOver Stand & Deliver this month, and the amateur wrestler has publicly spoken about his desire to sign for WWE in the future.

Paul Heyman recently spoke about the potential that Gable Stevenson has if he does decide to sign with WWE, noting that he could feasibly main event WrestleMania one day. You can read more about that by clicking here.
