• New RAW Star Thinks His Match With Brock Lesnar Will Sell Bigger Than Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns
During an interview with The MMA Hour, Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson, who was drafted to RAW last year, was asked about his dream match in WWE.
Gable picked current WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and went on to imply that he’s better than The Beast.
Below is what Steveson said:
“A dream matchup that I’ve been wanting for a long time, obviously, Brock Lesnar, you know?
Brock is Minnesota great. One-time national champ, two-time finalist. He lost to Stephen Neal in, I think, 2000 or something like that.
Brock Lesnar is the match I want. And obviously, he probably knows that and he’s getting ready for that too.
When that time comes, it’s going to be a great time, you know? It’s going to sell bigger than probably him and Roman Reigns.
But Brock don’t have two national titles. He don’t have Olympic gold. So my stats right now at his age, if we put him at 21 and me at 21, my stats are maybe just a little better besides him being a physical specimen and being on an NFL team.
But, who knows? That time’s gonna come and when that time comes, we gonna welcome him with open arms like everything else.”
