There has always been praise by fans and internally in WWE about Chad Gable’s in-ring work but it has been clear for a long time that management doesn’t see him as being more than just a mid-card guy.
Gable’s matches in NXT when he was part of American Alpha with Jason Jordan are among the best matches in the history of the brand but he hasn’t gotten the same opportunities on the main roster and there are some that feel that he should go elsewhere.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer praised Gable’s work and said that there are people who have suggested for him to go elsewhere when his contract expired but it does not look like he has any plans of leaving.
Meltzer said, “Chad Gable is fantastic. He’s so fantastic and they do so nothing with him. He was one of those guys where I would go ‘God get out of there’ but you know. It’s been talked about but I don’t think it’s gonna happen. It has been talked about and he’s definitely has had friends telling him the same thing and I know it’s been one of those things that’s under consideration but I don’t think he’s going anywhere.”
Meltzer also noted that Gable is making a lot of money and that not everyone is going to get an offer from AEW.
