Last night Chad Gable caused a pretty notable upset when he picked up a big win over Andrade, booking his place in the semi-finals of the WWE King of the Ring tournament in the process.
The former NXT star was considered to be the biggest underdog of the quarter-finals by a lot of fans, and while Elias’ triumph over Ali was also a little bit surprising, the reaction of the fans when Gable got the win should tell you all that you need to know.
Understandably, Andrade wasn’t best pleased to have been eliminated from the tournament – and he attempted to play the whole thing down on social media later in the evening.
The match between Andrade and Chad Gable was easily the match of the night, and the storytelling between the two men led to arguably the best moment of Chad’s singles career thus far in WWE.
There are still a million and one different directions that this thing could go in, and you truly do never know what could happen next between these two men, but for the time being, we’re just happy to go back and watch this match time and time again ahead of what promises to be a fun semi-final between Elias and Gable.
As for Andrade, it’s hard to say what kind of direction he’s going to go in next. One thing we all know for sure is that he is destined to be a world champion in WWE one day, and we don’t think it’ll be much longer before that dream becomes a reality.
