Gable getting into pro wrestling has led to fans comparing him to WWE Hall of Famer Angle, with some saying he should be given a gimmick similar to Angle, with theme music and all. Gable responded to the comments in a tweet tonight.
“I’m not the next Kurt Angle.. I’m Gable Steveson.. Now, Please Enjoy The Show.. Thank you! [popcorn emoji],” wrote Gable, a lifelong pro wrestling fan.
Some fans pointed to an Instagram post Gable made back on August 28. The photo shows the 21 year old in his Team USA singlet, with a caption that calls himself a modern day Kurt Angle.
“Modern Day Kurt Angle..,” he wrote as the caption to the photo, seen below.
