Top WWE Prospect Arrested On Charges Of Sexual Misconduct

WWE is always looking for their next crop of upcoming Superstars, and have had their eye on top University of Minnesota wrestling prospect Gable Steveson for some time. However, that may no longer be the case after news broke last night of Steveson’s arrest.

According to a report from KSTP TV in Minneapolis, “Gable Steveson along with 21-year-old Dylan Martinez are the subjects of a criminal investigation.” The two men are being held in suspicion of sexual misconduct in the Hennepin County Jail.

The University of Minnesota Athletics Department has issued a statement on the matter stating, “We are aware of a situation involving two of our student athletes and are in the process of gathering more information. These students have been suspended from all team activity pending further information. Federal and state law precludes any further details at this time.”

Not to long ago, Gable Steveson was granted the opportunity to participate in a one-on-one training session with WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar. You can see the footage of Lesnar and Steveson’s work out below.

On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about the developing situation surrounding Gable Steveson and WWE, as the company has been watching and scouting him since his days in High School.

Meltzer said:

“Yeah by the 2020 Olympics they thought he’d be a monster multiple time NCAA Champion — of course he hasn’t done that yet, but you know. He was considered the best amateur wrestler to come out of the state of Minnesota which is high praise because a lot of great wrestlers have come out of Minnesota, but he was arrested last night. Details of the situation have not been released.”

“He’s been suspended and I mean if there’s anything on that that’s something that might be it for it. It could easily be it for him. Another thing is it’s awful hard to come back from that, you know.”

“I’m not saying it’s dead that he could go to WWE, but if there’s a conviction there I think he probably could not go to WWE and WWE has had their eyes on him since he was in high school.”
