A new update would appear to indicate how far along Gable Steveson is from his heart issues, which could lead to him finally making his in-ring WWE debut.
Olympic gold medallist Gable Steveson officially signed with WWE on 9th September 2021, and at the time there was plenty of hype around the potential high-profile matchups he could have after transitioning to the world of professional wrestling.
However, his progress was halted when he was confirmed as suffering from Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Whilst Mayo Clinic says that the condition is more likely to cause fatalities in children and young adults, it can still cause “serious heart problems” for adults.
In a new update from WWE’s Chief Content Officer Triple H, it would appear Steveson is now in a position to train full-time at the Performance Center in preparation for finally having his first WWE match.
We’re glad to see that Gable is healthy and training full-time at our Performance Center in Orlando. WWE takes pride in our best-in-class medical team which guided Gable through this process to ensure that he has a long, healthy career with WWE.
Gable Steveson won a freestyle wrestling gold medal in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games. Since signing with WWE has made a couple of televised appearances, and most notably gave Chad Gable a suplex at WrestleMania 38.
