It was previously reported that Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson, who made his in-ring debut with the WWE at their WWE NXT Great American Bash Premium Live Event from inside the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park in Austin, Texas against Baron Corbin, withdrew from this month’s Senior World Championships and was officially removed from the NXT roster.
Despite Gable Steveson officially being removed from the NXT roster, he was back in in-ring action by competing in two WWE NXT House Shows last weekend when he defeated Dante Chen. An update was recently provided by Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com that Steveson’s situation needs to be reevaluated after the Olympic Gold Medalist was pegged as the next Brock Lesnar and there were huge plans to fast-track him to the main roster.
Dave Meltzer also mentioned that it is still unclear when Steveson will be brought back to television and as of a week ago, there were no plans for him to appear on NXT. Meltzer then said that Steveson’s situation depends on WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, who is currently away from the promotion while he is recovering from spinal surgery and that Steveson’s future will be a Vince decision even though Triple H is in charge of creative.
