Maybe Gable is not quitting

Recommended Posts

Flo says that Gable intends to both perform in WWE and compete in wrestling. https://www.flowrestling.org/articles/7146249-wwe-or-ncaa-gable-forges-his-own-way They wonder if that's legal. 

I don't see why not. NCAA football players like John Elway and Ricky Williams were allowed to play professional baseball. The reasoning was that they can be pro in  one sport and amateur in another. Certainly, WWE is not the same sport as NCAA wrestling even if it is a sport at all (it's not).

Doesn't matter with the NIL rules now. People can basically do whatever they want.

WWE is not a sport.  Can you play a sport and work at the local gas station?  yes.  You can.  
If on scholarship you can't have a job during the school year unless they have changed the rules. Only allowed to work in the summer.

They could.  For years.  Some interesting rules though - so your point has some validity.  
 

I expect the new rule changes have loosened further.  

Here is one example article from before recent NIL rules…

net net, my comparison to a gas station job is not all that fair.
