Kurt Angle recently spoke about Chad Gable on his ‘Kurt Angle Show‘ podcast and opened up about how Chad has been severely underutilized. Gable seems to be always stuck in a tag team or left with nothing to do when put out as a singles superstar.
Angle said, “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. 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.”
Kurt truly believes that WWE will eventually give Gable that opportunity to shine, just like they did with Kofi Kingston. Angle said, “I think Chad Gable is going to get that chance. All wrestlers eventually do unless they end up quitting or get fired.”
