WWE Raw has officially drafted Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson as part of the WWE Draft! Steveson has been a major name thrown around and had been reportedly approached by the WWE after his performance at the 2020 Summer Olympic Games that saw him not only win a gold medal for his effort in freestyle, but had defeated some defending and former champions on the way up through the games. It was earlier this Fall that WWE made it official that they had officially signed Steveson to a contract with the WWE, and now he’s been officially drafted to WWE Monday Night Raw.
As part of the final round of signings for Monday Night Raw on Night Two of the WWE Draft, it was announced that Steveson was surprisingly signed to the red brand. This confirms that he will be skipping right past the NXT 2.0 developmental program as many had suspected, and opens him up for a pretty huge future alongside finishing his final year at the University of Minnesota while signing the WWE’s first ever Name, Image, and Likeness deal. Now it’s just a matter of seeing how that shakes out.
