Steveson took to social media to indicate it’s all a matter of putting the pen to the paper. However, the fans started a conversation about which company it’s going to be, and they’re divided between WWE and AEW.

Some believe he should head to AEW because the company is doing exceptionally good for itself, and provides freedom to the pro-wrestlers. On the other hand, some are of the opinion that WWE is the place to go if he really wants to learn more about pro-wrestling.

As of now, it’s unclear which company Steveson is aiming for, but hopefully he’ll make a revelation soon.

Gable Steveson had previously wanted to be a part of WWE

More often than not, Steveson has indicated he wants to be a part of WWE. Not only that, he claimed he wants to be the biggest Superstar WWE has ever seen. Additionally, he has trained with Brock Lesnar as well, which potentially indicates he would rather be a part of WWE than AEW.

Next, after winning the gold medal at Olympics Tokyo 2020, he put out a tweet, waving at Vince McMahon. He had already revealed he would join WWE once he secures the gold at the Olympics.
