Olympic Gold Medal Wrestler Gable Stevenson To Join WWE

Gold medal winning Olympic wrestler Gable Stevenson says he’s signed a contract, and he will reportedly be wrestling for World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc (NYSE: WWE).

What happened: Stevenson sent out a tweet Saturday morning announcing the news of his signing, but not revealing his employer.

Stevenson met with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon at last month’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event, and reports indicate he has inked a deal with the entertainment and professional wrestling company. WWE recently signed Steveson’s brother Bobby Steveson as one of their new recruits in the WWE Performance Center as well.

Stevenson won the gold at the Tokyo Olympics, the first U.S. heavyweight to win the men’s freestyle 125kg event since 1992. He’s also an NCAA champion and Dan Gable award winner.

In an interview with Sports Illistrated in August Stevenson told the outlet if he ever became a WWE wrestler, “”I’d be a ‘Paul Heyman Guy.’”
