Bobby Lashley Wants Gable Steveson In The Hurt Business If He Joins WWE

The WWE Champion has his eyes on the Olympic Gold Medallist

Bobby Lashley says the 'smartest' thing for Gable Steveson to do, if he decides to join WWE, is give him a call about joining The Hurt Business.

Steveson won the Olympic Gold Medal in freestyle wrestling at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games earlier this month, and WWE Champion Lashley is full of praise for what the 21-year-old has achieved. 

Steveson has made clear he would be interested in a move to WWE, although the young wrestler also has the potential option of stepping into the UFC, and Lashley feels Steveson would be a good fit for The Hurt Business.

In an interview with ViBe & Wrestling, Lashley said on Steveson: "He has so much potential that he can do whatever he wants to do right now, so I got to take my hat off because I watched him at the Olympics and he looked incredible.

"I’m not trying to pull him this way [towards WWE] because he is young, he is 21 years old he can got to fight if he wants to and get that out of the system or that might be his call.

“If he does come to WWE, the smartest way for him to do is give me a call and maybe we can get him into The Hurt Business and help his career. If he comes to WWE and he is not part of The Hurt Business, then he is gonna fall like anybody else and be a second rate guy.

"So, those his options: either come to WWE and join The Hurt Business and we can ensure him that he is gonna be in the right place, and in the right hands, or he can go to UFC and to try to hand it out there."
