Bobby Steveson's in-ring debut set for WWE 205 Live


Bobby Steveson's in-ring debut is part of the lineup for this week's Christmas Eve episode of 205 Live.

Steveson, who is going by the name Damon Kemp in WWE, will face Andre Chase on 205 Live this Friday night. Steveson joined the WWE Performance Center this August. He announced his new in-ring name last month.

Bobby is the brother of Olympic gold medalist wrestler and WWE signee Gable Steveson. Bobby formerly was an amateur wrestler at the University of Minnesota, where Gable is currently completing his senior season. It was announced in September that Gable had signed an NIL (name, image, and likeness) deal with WWE. Gable will join WWE on a full-time basis when he finishes college.

In October, Gable was drafted to Raw in the WWE Draft.

WWE wrote about Bobby when he signed with the company:
