Chad Gable Admits Family’s WWE RAW Appearance Was Completely Unplanned

Chad Gable truly improved his position on WWE television once he got rid of his Shorty-G gimmick. Even WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle is a massive fan of Chad Gable and he has more reason to now after Gable’s series of matches against Gunther on RAW. It appears Gable’s family appearance on RAW for his title match against Gunther was not planned.

Chad Gable and Gunther have faced off thrice so far, with Gable even handing Gunther his first loss on the main roster via count-out last month. Gunther put his title on the line again on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.

The match turned out to be an instant classic for many. Chad Gable almost had it in the bag, but GUNTHER caught a second win and used a deadly combination of moves to put away Gable and crush his dreams and even made Gable’s daughter cry.

While speaking on WWE After The Bell, Chad Gable revealed that he did not know where his family was sitting until his wife sent him a picture. Once WWE found out Gable’s family was with him, they decided to make them part of the show.



”It kind of hit home for everybody here was that what made it real was the emotion — just happened that my family was there (for the I.C. Title match against GUNTHER), right? It wasn’t like I said, oh, let’s try to get you guys front row and make this a big deal. It was the last week before school, so I said, ‘Let’s take them with. Let’s give them one last fun thing for the summer…’ I don’t request front row tickets. I just get comps. They happened to sit there, they happened to get placed there… They (WWE) didn’t even know. They didn’t even know they were coming. So, they had no idea.

So, then they found out about it. Then they wanted to, you know, kind of say, ‘Let’s take advantage of this a little bit and film you during the day with your family a little bit. They showed us showing up.’ But I mean, none of that was privy to them early in the week, anything… and I wasn’t even really aware where they were sitting until minutes before and my wife had sent me a picture so I was like, I’ll go see my little dude up front because he’s wearing — mostly to get his singlet on TV because now he makes me make him a freaking singlet every time I get one made (Gable laughed)…

Even if you wanted to force some kind of emotion like that out of a kid, that stuff’s real. So, my oldest daughter is by far my most emotional. They all have different personalities but she’s the one that the world saw crying that night and she knows the deal. I’ve spoken to her about what daddy does and how it works and all this stuff. She knows but even that doesn’t matter. When you get there and your kid’s sitting in front of you watching their dad get beat up, it’s gonna draw it out of them, when she’s emotional like that.

My middle daughter, forget it, she could care less (he laughed). I think she was looking down to see how many chips and cheese she had left in her nachos but, and the dude’s enthralled with it too but, the emotion from my older daughter, I think touches on something like you guys just said we don’t get often anymore and that’s what Mark (Henry) is talking about so when it happens, naturally and organically, it just means so much more because we get stuff a lot of times where there’s people in the crowd that we cut to or wherever. We use audience members or family members in a way that is, you know, we meant for it. We’re making it a part of the show. This was not planned. None of it was meant to be a part of anything and that’s what made it organic and really, really got everybody I think.”

Gunther and Chad Gable’s story in WWE is also not over yet. We will have to wait and see whether Chad Gable will be eventually able to defeat Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship, as he is determined to dethrone Gunther now that the latter has made history.

What’s your opinion on Chad Gable losing to Gunther? Do you think he will eventually beat Gunther for the title? Let us know in the comments!
