Friends of WWE Raw star want him to go to AEW

During a discussion about the WWE Draft, Dave Meltzer talked about Chad Gable and said that there are friends of his that want him to leave WWE and sign with All Elite Wrestling.

Meltzer said, “Chad’s always awesome. He’s always awesome. A lot of people – I know a lot of his friends want him to go to AEW and I don’t know what the contract situation is for him but he’s been so misused or buried or whatever that it’s almost like you bring him – but I think he would be absolutely phenomenal in AEW. He’s phenomenal now.”

Gable was signed in 2013 and was pushed during his days in NXT as part of American Alpha with Jason Jordan but he has not found the same success on the main roster.

In 2019, the decision was made to repackage him as “Shorty G” but that name was dropped last year and he is now in the Alpha Academy tag team with Otis. They were moved to Monday Night Raw during the WWE Draft on Friday.

Bryan Danielson (when he was in WWE) and others pushed to do more with Gable because the feeling on him is that he is in-ring work is on the level of somebody like Kurt Angle.
