Steveson has made a few sporadic appearances on WWE programming, most notably at WrestleMania 38, where he was introduced by Stephanie McMahon.

Gable Steveson’s record makes him a viable challenger to Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns has been on a different stratosphere ever since returning as a heel in 2020. While he has decimated everyone in his path, Gable Steveson is unlike any other star The Tribal Chief has faced in the last few years.
The 23-year-old started making waves early in his career and went on to win the gold medal in wrestling at the 2020 Olympics, becoming the first American super-heavyweight to win freestyle Olympic gold since Bruce Baumgartner in 1992.
After gaining massive notoriety on social media, Gable signed a deal with WWE in 2021. While he is yet to lace up his pro wrestling boots, it was recently reported that his debut is looming closer, which means he may not have to wait long to face Roman Reigns.
The Tribal Chief is currently without a challenger for his world title and is dealing with a possible collapse of The Bloodline. While Reigns is reportedly set to be in action at Money in the Bank, his opponent is still unknown.
While it has been speculated that he could team up with Solo Sikoa to face The Usos, one can expect to get a clear picture when The Head of the Table returns to SmackDown this Friday.
