Chad Gable has been an incredible athlete who has impressed pro wrestling fans with his impressive technical skills. While Gable has mostly wrestled as a tag team specialist, his encounters with Gunther depicted his hunger for a singles championship win. On August 21st edition of RAW, Chad Gable ended Gunther’s undefeated streak by beating him for the Intercontinental Championship but there wasn’t a title change as it was a win via countout.

This has been more of a personal thing for Chad Gable than just winning the Intercontinental Championship. It is more about seeing the happy faces of his children than just winning the match. Gable’s daughter was seen crying during the September 4th edition of RAW when he lost to Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship. Since then, Gable has made it his first and foremost priority to win the Intercontinental Championship.

This has now been evident in an incredible promo that Gable has just released on his Twitter handle. The promo is fast-paced and motivational. It consists of Chad Gable being ardent, speaking about redemption, and training really hard for a shot at the Intercontinental Championship. At the end of the promo, he declares that he is winning the Intercontinental Championship.

Now that Brock Lesnar’s return to the company is in limbo due to his alleged involvement with Vince McMahon in sexual trafficking, the plans for Gunther vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 40 are in the trash bin. Therefore, this makes it evident that the WWE will go for Chad Gable to finish his story.


It has been a long time for Chad Gable to get his shot at the big stage, and finally, it seems to be happening at the grandest stage of them all. The latest, Gunther defended his Intercontinental Championship was on the February 19th edition of RAW against Jey Uso. He hasn’t defended it at a PPV since defending it at the Survivor Series against Miz.

While there has been no official confirmation regarding Gunther’s next opponent, he will surely defend his Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania. It would be exciting to see how this storyline pays off, as it would be the story of a father desperately trying to prove to his children that he isn’t a “failure.”
