Chad Gable truly improved his position on WWE television once he got rid of his Shorty-G gimmick. Since then, he has competed at a level of technical excellence only a few are able to achieve. Kurt Angle also believes Gable isn’t getting pushed for an unfortunate reason.

The former Shorty G has been doing a solid job as leader of Alpha Academy, as he competed in several solid matches over the past year. He has finally gained a proper fan following with a few new catchphrases.

While Speaking with Steve Fall on NBC Sports Boston, Kurt Angle stated that he believes Chad Gable’s size is holding him back and that’s why he isn’t getting pushed much in WWE.

Well, he’s a great talent. He’s very talented and I think the reason is his size. You know he’s probably 170 pounds, you know 5’8. I think that bears a little bit on the reason why he’s not being pushed as much as he should be but I think he is an amazing talent. I think the WWE can do a lot with him. He’s very technical, he has a lot of charisma, he’s a talented kid and I think he would do extremely well if the company pushed him.”


Chad Gable also previously got huge props for being money maker in WWE. Alpha Academy continues to be one of the highlights of Monday Night RAW every week as well. It remains to be seen whether WWE will give Gable a push or not in the future.
