Gable Steveson Announced For 2023 World Championships In Freestyle Wrestling – Gable Steveson was named among the competitors announced by United World Wrestling for the 2023 World Championships. Scheduled to take place from September 16 to September 24, the championship offers an opportunity for Steveson to demonstrate his skills on the international stage once again. This announcement underscores his commitment to both amateur and professional wrestling, showcasing his versatility and dedication to his craft.
The announcement noted, “At 125kg, Gable STEVESON (USA) is set to return after a substantial absence. The 21-year-old sensation made waves at the Tokyo Olympic Games, stunning the wrestling community with his triumph. He managed to defeat now-reigning world champion Taha AKGUL (TUR) and three-time world champion Geno PETRIASHVILI (GEO) en route to Olympic glory. Following his Olympic gold, Steveson took a brief retirement from wrestling to pursue a career in WWE. However, he has since added another Olympic gold to his aspirations.”
Steveson recently made his much-anticipated in-ring debut at NXT Great American Bash against Baron Corbin, which ended in a double count out.
He was also back in a WWE ring a few weeks after his in-ring debut as he took out Dolph Ziggler during a Raw dark segment in Minneapolis after Ziggler got local heat with the fans.
