U.S. Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson signs with WWE


After speculation and plenty of positive statements about each other over the last year, U.S. Olympic gold medal wrestler, NCAA champion and Dan Gable award winner Gable Steveson has signed with WWE, according to Dave Meltzer.

No start date or other details were given. It's unknown if he is done at the University of Minnesota where he won two Big Ten Conference titles and was a two-time All-American.

Earlier Saturday, Steveson tweeted "Just put pen to paper."

Steveson was in attendance at last month's SummerSlam where he was reportedly met with Vince McMahon. He did not meet with UFC's Dana White, later saying they each had other's phone number and social media information.

The 21-year-old won gold at the recent Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, winning his first-ever gold medal and raising his profile in the process. He had talked about also going into MMA in addition to pro wrestling, but it's unknown if he will still pursue that.
