In perhaps one of the most shocking moves of the 2021 WWE Draft, Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson was drafted to Monday Night RAW.
Steveson is perhaps best known for his recent performance at the 2021 Summer Olympic Games, where he defeated three-time and reigning World Champion Geno Petriashvili to capture the gold in thrilling fashion. Since then, Steveson has appeared at various WWE shows, most notably SummerSlam, where he was celebrated for his victory alongside other Olympic gold medalists.
Last month, it was reported that Steveson had signed a multi-year deal to perform with WWE, although specific details weren’t known. Now, though, we know where Steveson will be performing, but it remains to be seen just how much TV time he’ll get early in his career.
