Paul Heyman has published an article on his blog Heyman Hustle where he talks about who will be the next big star in the fight according to him. Heyman and his client have been meeting undefeated young wrestler Gable Steveson in the past and Heyman has kept it in his sights.
Steveson won the heavyweight tournament at the Cliff Keen Invitational in Las Vegas on Saturday, December 1, 2018, and led his series to 13 wins and zero losses. Paul Heyman says he believes Gable Steveson will be the future of the sport and that WWE and UFC will be fighting for their services in the next few years.
It remains to be seen whether Gable Steveson will be a Paul Heyman Guy like Brock Lesnar in the next few years.
If ur looking just a couple of yrs into the future, the next big bidding war between @WWE and @UFC will take place over the services of @GSteveson, the undefeated #UofM wrestler who, as a freshman, brought renewed interest to college like no one since ….https://t.co/QUk1IP5WoK
