Steveson has two paths in front of him – WWE or UFC. He could essentially do what Brock Lesnar did.

Once he has acquired this fame, he should move to UFC and start competing for PPVs directly. Considering he will be an established name by the time he goes to UFC, he can get paid a lot more.

Gable Steveson has reached out to Vince McMahon

Recently, Steveson took to social media to wave at Vince McMahon. He said nothing else. However, he did the same with UFC President Dana White.

It’s possible he wants to join WWE first. In fact, he had already expressed wanting to be a part of WWE after he was done competing in the Olympics.

Now that he has won gold, it’s unknown if he’s going to stick to his previous plan.

Even if not WWE, AEW stands to be an option for the young wrestler. However, if he wants to become ‘The Next Big Thing’, WWE is the best option for him.
