• Olympic Gold Medalist Tells Brock Lesnar To Cut Off His Ponytail
2021 Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson was honored at the recent SummerSlam pay-per-view and Vince McMahon himself is said to be pushing big time for WWE to sign the 21-year-old amateur wrestling champion.
During an interview with ‘The MMA Hour’, Steveson talked about WWE Legend Brock Lesnar, who was once an NCAA Champion too, and said that Brock should cut off the ponytail.
Here’s what Gable had to say:
“Brock came in one day, we were practicing. The first video you probably saw of me and him wrestling, he was real tired. He came in and he was like, you’ve got to cut that sh*t off of your head. I was like, ‘what do you mean? I like it.’ And he was like, ‘No, you’ve got to look like a professional.’
And so I thought about it for a few months and mid-match I’d get my hair pulled. Few months later…I was like, you know what? I’m going (to short) and I’m going to grow a beard out.
[Brock Lesnar] comes out Saturday at SummerSlam. He got this ugly hair and beard and all that. I was telling him, ‘Yo, you remember you telling me to cut my hair and I told him you gotta cut yours now.’ Bro, you gotta cut it off.”
Brock is rumored to wrestle Universal Champion Roman Reigns at Saudi Arabia’s WWE Crown Jewel 2021 PPV in October.
