Twitter reactions for Gable Steveson as he ends his wrestling career after winning his second NCAA title 

Gable Steveson has officially retired from wrestling, and that too in style as he won his second consecutive NCAA championships on Saturday night in Detroit.

His 6-2 victory over Arizona State’s Cohlton Schultz was a dominant run for the 21-year-old heavyweight from the University of Minnesota. After earning his win, Steveson celebrated with his high-flying signature flip through the air before removing his shoes and leaving them in the centre of the mat, which signifies the end of his wrestling career.

This is what Steveson said on the ESPN broadcast about his retirement,

“It’s done,” “I knew what I came to do. I was going to win an Olympic gold, win the national tournament again. It’s just weird. I don’t know how to describe it.”  (h/t MMA Fighting)

Steveson has offered to help the next generation of athletes taking his place. He is on his way to focusing on a new career with WWE. This is what the champion has to say about his own career,

“Just maturing, physically and mentally, having good people around me,” Steveson said about his own career. “Having a good support system. It’s taken me to many places, you guys could see so many more.

“Just stay focused, stay grinding, keep a good friends group, young kids stay in school, have fun, train hard and love wrestling. You will never get here if you don’t love it.”
