• Triple H Comments On Top WWE Prospect Gable Steveson Winning An Olympic Gold Medal

Gable Steveson, who has been a top WWE prospect for a while, won an Olympic Gold Medal today at the Tokyo Olympics.

The 21-year-old defeated Georgian Geno Petriashvili in the 125-kilogram freestyle category.

He was 3 points down with just 23 seconds remaining, but he managed to score 5 points in the remaining time and won the gold medal. He celebrated his win with a backflip!

Here’s what Triple H tweeted about Gable’s big victory:

“A GOLD-MEDAL celebration!!! Congratulations to @GableSteveson on his performance at the #TokyoOlympics. Focused until the last second, another gold medal for @USAWrestling and #TeamUSA!!!!”

SmackDown wrestler Chad Gable, who is a 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials Champion, tweeted the following:

“Grit. Determination. Outright refusal to lose. What a performance.

Congratulations! This makes me proud.

#Minnesota #TeamUSA”

WWE Hall Of Famer & 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle said the following Steveson possibly becoming a big WWE star in the future:

“I think he’s gonna be a big star. Look at his look. If he adapts to pro-wrestling and picks it up like Brock Lesnar, he’s gonna be exactly like Brock Lesnar.

So, I think he needs to take the chance. Whether he goes to MMA or WWE, one or the other but he’s gotta do one of them. I think that he is a future star regardless of what he does. He’s got a great look to him, a great athlete.”

Steveson was ringside at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver earlier this year during the WrestleMania 37 week:
