Chad Gable To Undergo Name Change Ahead Of Gable Steveson Debut? WWE

Gable Steveson has suggested that Chad Gable might have to change his name, ahead of Steveson joining WWE full-time.

Speaking on The MMA Hour, the Olympic and NCAA Champion confirmed that he will use his real name in WWE.

It was pointed out that WWE Raw already has a ‘Gable’ in former Raw Tag Team Champion Chad Gable.

Steveson acknowledged this issue, suggesting that there might be a name ‘switcharoo’ soon.

Noting that he respects Chad Gable, Steveson said:

“I’ll be just Gable. Gable Steveson.

“We’re gonna have to have a talk with him. I mean, I don’t when I’m gonna even talk to him. It could be WrestleMania, it could be somewhere else. I’m just not sure.

“You can’t (have two Gables). You can’t but right now we do. So there might have to be a little switcharoo. I don’t know, but I love Chad too. He’s a cool dude.”

Ironically, Chad Gable was also an extremely accomplished amateur wrestler, notably competing at the 2012 Summer Olympics. It is worth noting that ‘Chad Gable’ is just a ring moniker, with the athlete’s real name being Charles Betts.

The Raw talent isn’t unfamiliar with name changes, going by ‘Shorty G’ on SmackDown in 2019-2020.

At WrestleMania 38, Alpha Academy will face off against the Street Profits and RK-Bro for the Raw Tag Team Championship.

You can view the announced cards for WrestleMania Saturday (April 2) here, and WrestleMania Sunday (April 3) here.
