Gable Steveson is looking to become one of the youngest U.S. wrestling gold medalists when he competes in Tokyo. The charismatic 21-year-old who weighs about 275 pounds hopes a successful run at the Games launches him into a WWE career like his mentor, Brock Lesnar, and an acting career like former WWE star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
