Steveson was drafted to the RAW brand last October. He signed a multi-year deal with WWE last September as a part of the first-ever exclusive NIL agreement. WWE also set up a remote training facility for Steveson near the University of Minnesota Campus. The wrestler would work with WWE coaches to learn the style of play.
