WWE Name Makes Dominant Amateur Wrestling Return At US Open WWE

WWE signee Gable Steveson has officially made his return to amateur wrestling, ahead of his eventual WWE in-ring debut.

Steveson returned to action for the US Men’s Freestyle Open in Las Vegas, Nevada this week, which saw him outscore his opponents 44-1 to earn four separate, and advance to the Final X in Newark, NJ, in May.

In the semi-final bout, Steveson defeated stand-out wrestler Mason Parris, outscoring him 12-1. You can watch a clip of this bout below.

Steveson previously stated that he’s hopeful that he will represent Team USA at the 2024 Olympic Games.

He was officially announced for the US Open earlier this month.

The Olympic gold medalist signed with WWE in September 2021, and was moved to the Raw brand in that October’s WWE Draft.

Besides a brief physical confrontation with former Olympian Chad Gable at WrestleMania 38 in April 2022, Gable Steveson has yet to wrestle for WWE.

He recently stated that he expects to make his pro-wrestling debut ‘really, really soon’, following WrestleMania 39.

This year’s WWE Draft is currently in effect, with proceedings kicking off on the April 28 edition of SmackDown.
