Angle on Gable: “Chad has been underutilized”

Feb 21, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

During a recent episode of the Kurt Angle podcast, Kurt Angle talked about Chad Gable and how he feels Gable is being underutilized by WWE. Here’s what the Olympic Gold Medalist had to say:

“Chad has been underutilized, and I believe it’s his size, even though he’s as strong as an ox. He does a deadlift German with 300-pounders and it’s impressive. To do something like that, that’s a talent you want to utilize. He’s the real deal. He might not look that big, but his strength, technique, and ability show in those matches. If you put reigns on the kid, he’s not going to succeed, but if you let him go and let him do his thing, he’s going to be a huge star. Someday, they’re going to utilize him correctly,” said Angle. “People get injured, main event wrestlers especially because they are putting in the most work. Eventually, he’s going to get called up into a spot and he’s going to blow their minds and they’ll keep him in that spot. It’s going to happen eventually.”

    I love Gable, hated Shorty G.
    He deserves the push.

    Only chance he has at living up to his potential is to get released on go to MLW, AEW, Japan, Impact, etc. WWE will never do anything major with him.

    Agree with you both, I really think he’d shine in the Pure division in ROH.
