Gable Steveson Discusses Brock Lesnar's Role In Decision To Join WWE
Steveson signed with WWE at the start of September
Gable Steveson has revealed Brock Lesnar has given him some guidance and advice on joining WWE.
Steveson was confirmed as signing with WWE two weeks ago, having won an Olympic Gold Medal at the 2020 Tokyo Games over the summer.
The 21-year-old is currently studying at the University of Minnesota, where Lesnar also went, and has also trained the The Beast on a number of occasions. Steveson has now opened up on the role Lesnar played in him joining WWE.
Speaking on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani podcast, Steveson said: "Besides talking to guys like Lesnar and Triple H and such, I haven’t actually talked to another collegiate wrestler in WWE….[Brock] was a good part [of the decision] because the Brock Lesnar path, like we talked about, he started with WWE and went to the NFL and made it to the final stages of being on the team, then went to UFC.
"So, I mean the Brock Lesnar route is helpful for me, and I want to pave my own way and have my own destiny. He was a big help in this, and it was cool that he gave me some guidance."
