Ever since dropping the Shorty G gimmick, Chad Gable has been hell-bent to compete at the highest level of technical matches as he can. Gable has been involved in his Alpha Academy tag team with Otis and even went on to become the RAW Tag Team Champions. It seems Gable wants to prove how good tag teams can be in WWE as well.
For the past couple of months, one of the highlights of Monday Night RAW has certainly been the feud between Team RK-Bro and American Alpha. For many, this has been Chad Gable’s best run in the company since his American Alpha Days.
While speaking on WWE After the Bell with Corey Graves, Chad Gable talked about how the feud between The Alpha Academy and RK-Bro started. Gable also added that he and Otis want to show everyone that tag teams can be a mainstay on Monday Night RAW.
“First of all, I think the craziest part of it is how things happen in WWE,” Gable said. “Some things seem to happen out of nowhere and this for us happened out of nowhere, it just happened. We were doing singles matches with Randy and Riddle like we do sometimes here, and never really had a proper tag match. I think they just saw the interaction and the perfect storm of these characters. I think what’s working so well right now for this program is its four perfectly defined characters who the audience knows and who they’re looking at, they know who they’re listening to every time someone speaks. They’re all so distinct and all have their own personalities that play together so perfectly as opposed to two guys in the same tag team that are the same mindset. I think when we see that on tv and the audience sees that, it’s so good to look at because it’s different.
Maybe people have this idea in their heads that official tag teams need to be the same, and tag team wrestling at its highest form is like an art-form like no other. It’s so beautiful and you can tell a completely different and unique story than you can in any singles match. I truly believe that, and I learned that in NXT and it was basically a college education in wrestling. I got a degree in that but from everybody that I learned from down there, the little intricacies you can apply and do in tag team wrestling that just aren’t possible in singles matches. The chance to mix it up and show the audience on RAW, maybe we’re finally showing them that tag team wrestling can be the mainstay here and be the focal point for the long-term.”
We will have to wait and see whether The Alpha Academy will be defending their RAW Tag Team Titles against Team RK-Bro at WrestleMania 38, as this is something Chad Gable really wants as well.
