In recent years, several WWE Superstars have been released, but many of the athletes currently working in the rings of many other global companies have instead applied for themselves to be released, such as Andrade, the late Luke Harper/Brodie Lee or Dean Ambrose, returned to being Jon Moxley at the end of his contract with the McMahons.
After two years of a global covid pandemic, which has practically slowed down and ruined plans for a while for all the pro-wrestling companies in the world, there are still some Superstars who remain on the sidelines, waiting for better times, but without asking.
the release and thus settling for some "crumb" of popularity that comes only every now and then. One of the Superstars who has had much better moments and who is now certainly not one of the first choices of the McMahon-owned federation is Chad Gable, confined to acting as manager/shoulder to the massive Otis, after the latter is back in single, after the split with Mandy Rose and before that with the split from the Heavy machinery mate.
During the last Newsletter arrived at the microphones of the usual Wrestling Observer, through the words of the well-known Dave Meltzer, we learn about the situation around the Friday Night Smackdown talent, who didn't want to leave WWE but was pressed by some friends, who didn't see him do well in the Stamford-based company.
Backstage news on Chad Gable
To the microphones of his last speech, Meltzer said: "Chad Gable is great. He's so great they don't know what to do with him. He's one of those guys who makes you go 'Oh God, he's out there', but you know what he's like.
They've talked a lot about him going away, but I don't think he'll ever do anything about it. Everyone has talked about it, even his friends of him all tell him the same thing, that he has to give up because they don't see him well, but I don't know if he has ever taken it into consideration, I don't know if he will ever go anywhere."
Speaking to SPORTbible, Big E named Gable as an underrated WWE Superstar among the current roster. The New Day star recalled when he was much heavier than he is now and how easily Gable performed a German suplex on him. "I'd probably go Chad Gable," Big E said.
"Chad Gable's incredible and even though we've seen him for several years in WWE and NXT, I think you've only really gotten glimpses of how good he can be. He's a guy I think can be doing a lot more than he is now."
