One of the most buzzing signings in WWE is undoubtedly the young and talented Gable Steveson. The 21-year-old American recently won Olympic gold and Vince McMahon's company signed him. WWE Universe insiders and fans are hoping for a consecration of him that could possibly lead him to walk in the footsteps of a company legend like Kurt Angle.
Gable Steveson has revealed that he has been training in recent months with Brock Lesnar and apparently the two are very close friends. According to some rumors reported by the well-known colleague Dave Meltzer, WWE is even thinking of having the young talent and The Beast Incarnate challenge in a spectacular event at Wrestlemania.
Speaking during an interview with TMZ's microphones, Paul Heyman spoke of Gable Steveson (and as he usually does) praised himself for his work with the Olympic gold medalist. Here are the statements of him specifically: "I can say that I am personally responsible for all the right corporate decisions regarding Gable Steveson, his career and his life.
It is also my credit for his recent gold medal and his NCAA Division 1 heavyweight championship. I was the one who arranged for Gable Steveson to train with Brock Lesnar at the University of Minnesota and that was important for him to win the Olympics.
In addition to this I must admit that I recommended the strategy to win the gold medal at the Olympics." WWE is betting heavily on Gable Steveson and for this reason the company seems ready to launch the Olympic champion in the main roster soon.
As for Brock Lesnar, The Beast Incarnate is back in WWE after more than a year and a half of absence, speaking at the end of the SummerSlam Main Event. The wrestler seems to want to soon start a feud against Roman Reigns even if at the moment the date of their possible confrontation is not yet known.
Drew McIntyre: "I want to face Roman Reigns again!"
One of the wrestlers who drove WWE around this time is former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. The Scottish Psychopath had some extraordinary months and dragged the company into a difficult time, all fans fondly remember the WWE Survivor Series challenge between McIntyre and Roman Reigns, the true ruler of WWE right now.
Through the microphones of Real Radio 92.1 Drew McIntyre spoke about many issues and had words of great praise for the Tribal Chief. Here are the statements of the former WWE Champion: "I think a new fight against Roman Reigns would be great.
He is on top of the world right now and is doing an incredible job at WWE, probably the best of his career. We faced each other at the Survivor Series and we built this match in less than a week, so many people were close to us to make it happen.
Roman and I have always had great chemistry in the past where he was the Face and I was the Heel. Now I'm playing a version that is more like myself as he is playing the best version possible and I think there is a great connection between us.
Even when we challenged each other without the crowd, I saw that we were very well together and so I can only imagine what match we could stage in the event of our meeting with the presence of the WWE Universe." For Drew McIntyre it is not an extraordinary period in terms of results.
After having definitively lost the storyline and the challenge for the title against Bobby Lashley, the wrestler in the last episode of Monday Night Raw was the protagonist in a Triple Threat Match valid for the Us Champion title against Sheamus and against the current champion Damian Priest and it was the latter who pinned him with a terrible Reckoning.
