Gable Steveson: “My goal is to be the best version of me, not Kurt Angle”

Last updated

WWE RAW Superstar Gable Stevenson recently appeared on WWE’s After The Bell podcast. The Olympic gold medallist discussed several topics during the show, including how he is being compared to Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar.

“It’s fine. I don’t mind the pressure” Steveson revealed. “People compare me to Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar, it’s actually really cool. Kurt Angle is a legend. They’re both Hall of Famers at the end of the day.

“To be compared to those guys is something crazy. It’s good and bad” Steveson noted. “Kurt won a gold medal and I won a gold medal. The difference is, he had a broken neck and I won it in the last one second. My gold medal doesn’t exist because if I don’t have a broken neck, it’s gone.

“The chip is always going to be there because people surround that pressure that I like around me to be a WWE superstar and live up to that hype” Steveson revealed.

“That Kurt Angle hype is really good and it drives me to be better than he is. If I don’t reach that point, I know I tried and did my best. At the end of the day, my goal is to be the best version of Gable, not Kurt Angle, not Brock Lesnar. Even with their support and their look, I want to be the person I want to be” the Olympian concluded.
