United States Olympic gold medalist and NCAA Champion Gable Steveson has made his decision on his future as an athlete.

Steveson tweeted today, "Just put pen to paper." Dave Meltzer later confirmed that Steveson has signed a contract with WWE. Steveson had fielded offers from several places but WWE was pushing the hardest to sign him and he had been invited to a TakeOver show and SummerSlam a couple of weeks ago.

Steveson said that he met with Vince McMahon during SummerSlam weekend and while there was talk that he could make the jump to mixed martial arts, he had not met with UFC's Dana White but said that White could reach out to him if he was interested.
