One of the most laughable gimmicks in recent memory has been the Shorty G character. Chad Gable is an extremely talented performer with tons of charisma. However, he is short. Therefore his whole character had to be that he was short.
“I always ask for opportunities. I’ve been in Vince’s office, I talk to the writers, I’m constantly asking for opportunities. When I finished King of the Ring, it was explained to me that this was the direction we were going. I’m not the type of guy that’s going to go in, ask for an opportunity, and when given it, complain about it. That’s not my philosophy on life. I got my opportunity. Is it the perfect situation? No.
In amateur wrestling me being short was not a thing because I was on a team with 55-60 kilo guys who are not even 5′. I was on the taller end. It was fine, I got the opportunity I asked for, but it started going off the rails when I was doing segments with guys that I’m taller than. I’m gonna try and give it every ounce of energy I have because I’m committed to this.”
Gable quit in storyline on SmackDown last week. Whether he returns in the near future remains to be seen.
