In an update on Gable Steveson’s future with WWE, University of Minnesota Head Wrestling Coach Brandon Eggum noted last week that Steveson will not be competing for the school this coming season as WWE would prefer Steveson to be solely focused on his professional wrestling career at this time.
“Unfortunately will not be able to compete for us this season, he is a great competitor, he’s always wanted to compete for the University Of Minnesota, but ultimately the WWE would prefer that he’s solely focused on his professional wrestling career at this time, so whenever he’s not at the WWE Performance Center down in Florida, he’s up here in our realm working with out heavyweights, which is awesome.”
"Coach's Corner" is back in 2024!
