• Chad Gable’s Name Changed Again On SmackDown

In the second match of tonight’s SmackDown on FOX, Chad Gable (now known as Shorty Gable) faced Curtis Axel.

Gable won the match via submission when he made Axel tap out to the Ankle Lock.

After the match, Gable got interviewed and he said his height is what makes him who he is and he’s proud of it.

Gable then shortened his name to “Shorty G” (a name that was planned months ago, as we reported).
