Booker T gives his thoughts on Gable Steveson being released from WWE

It was previously reported that Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson was among the list of WWE cuts from April of 2024. While speaking on his podcast, WWE personality Booker T gave his thoughts on Steveson’s release from WWE…

“As far as the build-up, you could see that, with what people were expecting to see from Gable Steveson. Just because he had the look, he had everything you check off as far as the box goes, he had all of that. For it not to pan out, I think it was him not really buying all in, not really saying, ‘Man, I’m really gonna throw everything into doing this and being the best at it.’ He had one foot in the door and one foot out, let’s just say that. I think that’s what it was more than anything.

Could he have cut it and really pulled this thing off? Probably. But I think that wrestling bug was still in his system, and it was hard for him to really get it out. It seemed like he still had something to prove. There again, just having one foot in and one foot out, I think that was his problem.” (quote courtesy of Colin Tessier)
