WWE SmackDown star Chad Gable sent out a tweet earlier this week to hype the King Of The Ring tournament and it appears that he thought he would be involved in the tournament.
Gable tweeted, “My chance at redemption. It’s written in the stars. KING GABLE. #AlphaAcademy #ForTheAcademy”
However, the brackets revealed during SmackDown show that Gable is not involved in the tournament. Gable tweeted the following after the bracks were shown: “Whoops never mind LOLz”
In the opening round, Sami Zayn defeated Rey Mysterio and Finn Balor defeated Cesaro.
Gable was in the finals of the last King of the Ring tournament that took place in 2019. He was traded to Raw this week in the WWE Draft along with Alpha Academy tag team partner Otis.
As previously noted, there are friends of Gable who feel that he should leave WWE when his contract expires and he should go to AEW.
