Chad Gable has opened up about winning the Raw Tag Team Championship alongside his long-time friend, Otis.
Alpha Academy defeated RK-Bro to claim the titles on Monday’s (January 10) edition of Raw. On Instagram, Gable shared old photos of himself and Otis, next to a photo of the duo with the tag titles.
Reflecting on his friendship and title win, Gable wrote:
“There’s winning championships, and then there’s achieving dreams alongside your best friend.
@otis_wwe and I have been talking about a night like last night since we were training for the Olympics together in Colorado Springs in 2011.
The Alpha Academy relationship is much more than a tag team. It’s been a brotherhood for 10+ years.
After getting called up to RAW, I jokingly told Otis there was a house for sale up the street for me if he wanted to move in. Within days, he told me he put it an offer and would be there in a few weeks.
Since then, he’s come over nearly every single day for us to leave puddles of sweat in my garage in some of the grittiest training sessions you could ever imagine, all with the goal of continually making progress in this profession and in life. I could not be happier or more proud of this man.
My protege. My prized pupil. My #1 guy. But most importantly, my friend.
We did it.”
Gable is now a two-time Raw Tag Team Champion, previously holding the title alongside Robert Roode. Raw marked Otis’ first championship victory in WWE, not including his Money in the Bank contract win in 2020.
