What is being said about Gable Steveson’s WWE status amidst reports that “there are no plans for him”

Last week, Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson withdrew from competing in the 2023 World Wrestling Championships in Belgrade, Serbia. It was also reported by Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com that Steveson was “officially removed” from the WWE NXT roster and “there are no plans for him in NXT at this moment.”

Steveson ended up wrestling at NXT live events over the weekend. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer discussed the situation with Steveson…

“He worked two shows this weekend. That was coming off from Wednesday when he pulled out of the World Championships. It’s weird because originally, they had him pegged as the next Brock Lesnar. Obviously, that has to be re-evaluated. He got a great deal coming off of winning the Gold Medal, as he was expected to be the next Brock Lesnar. But, you know, he was gonna debut on the main roster in a big way, and now he’s wrestling Dante Chin in Sebring, Florida, in front of 200 people to get ready. His trajectory has changed greatly, but he is there and not trying for Belgrade. I don’t know if he’s going to be back on TV soon. I know a week ago, they had no plans for him. A lot depends on… his situation will depend on Vince [McMahon]. Until Vince comes back, I don’t know if we’re gonna know a lot that’s going to happen with him because his situation is going to be a Vince decision, and if Vince isn’t back, then Triple H is in charge and everything like that, but it’s the big picture. He’s got an uphill climb right now.” (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
