“Most definitely. I’m going to explore the WWE. You know Vince McMahon is a great dude. Triple H is a great person also. So for me not to explore WWE would be very fairly stupid on my part. But I’m going to go out there. And me and Triple H gonna have face-to-face talks. Me and Vince will, me and Dana will, me and Joe Rogan will. And I’m going to go out there and like I said, I’m going to explore.” 

Gable is the most sought after wrestler in the market at the moment, and rightly so. His achievement in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is nothing short of commendable. A person with his talent and abilities needs an excellent platform to shine even brighter.

WWE could be the stepping stone Gable needs in his career to reach the sky and beyond. With WWE releasing so many wrestlers recently, one can only speculate if it is to make room for new stars like Gable Steveson.
