Chad Gable Graduates With ‘Master Of Fine Arts’ Media Design Degree

WWE Raw star Chad Gable has graduated from Full Sail University with a Master of Fine Arts degree in Media Design.

He took to Twitter to celebrate, writing:

Right near the top of the lists of things I wouldn’t have believed if you told me two years ago, it’s that I would be going back to school.

Motion graphics, animation and digital cinema/filmmaking have been a passion of mine since I was 14 years old and is what I chose to pursue for by bachelor’s degree, which I received in 2010.

Yesterday I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts degreee in Media Design from Full Sail University. I finished with a 4.0 GPA as Valedictorian and recipient of the “Advanced Achievement” award, indicating the student most likely to succeed in their chosen industry.

Earlu on in the pandemic, the extra time and change in schedule led me to decide I didn’t want to come out the other side of it without using these things for something positive. Through an awesome corporate partnership between WWE and Full Sail along with scholarships from the Comanche Nation (of which I am a member) and the United States Olympic Committee, I decided to undertake the accelerated degree program.

Only thing I underestimated was how chaotic adding a THIRD child into the mix would be HA. The workload was ridiculous. Truthfully, I did more research and writing in the last 12 months than I did in the entirety of my previous education.

The entire experience was an incredible way to keep my creativity flowing and avoid complacency. It reignited my passion for design and I’ll continue to practice and hone this skillset while I chase more goals within WWE (I’ve got a lot left to do here).

That being said, first order of business is going to be to relax for a little bit and play Earthboumd (my favorite video game of all time) through from the beginning.

I’d encourage anyone considering a risk, change, or new venture that has the means to do so to DIVE IN DEEP right now. You’ll find a lot out about yourself.

Congratulations to Chad Gable, real name Charles Betts, for yet another incredible and inspiring achievement to add to those that he’s already accomplished.

His WWE future was recently called into question after reports that several people in AEW want him there and have talked about bringing him in, but it certainly sounds like he’s still eyeing up some goals in WWE.
