WWE Raw Star Says He ‘Feels Useful’ Under Triple H WWE

With Triple H taking over WWE creative from Vince McMahon back in July, the fortunes of a number of current WWE stars have been completely different.

One name who is featured on Raw almost every week is Chad Gable of the Alpha Academy.

While Gable hasn’t picked up many victories of his own on Raw in recent weeks, Gable has had high quality matches, both singles and tag team, against numerous opponents.

Gable spoke with Denise Salcedo ahead of the Royal Rumble, where he spoke about his time under the Triple H regime, and how he feels useful to the company.

He said:

“I think we’ve seen since Hunter took over, and thankfully, for my sake, he does really appreciate the wrestling side of what we do. I think he sees that in me. I think he sees me as a valuable go-to guy that he can depend on when he needs a quality match out of whoever.

“Which, to me is really gratifying to know that I can be looked upon like that from somebody, not only just fans, but someone like Hunter, who is in the position he is. So it’s been rewarding.

“It’s been nice to be very busy and kind of feel very useful over the past six months because a lot of times in the past, it hasn’t been that way. So yeah, it’s been a good period.”

Gable has stepped in the ring with names like Johnny Gargano, Kevin Owens and the Judgment Day in recent months, but he spoke about other members of the roster he would like to face off with.

Gable said:

“Fortunately, like I said, over the past six months, I’ve had the chance to mix it up with a lot of great guys in singles matches, too. So, I do want to take advantage of this opportunity as a singles guy to wrestle. I haven’t gotten up against guys like Seth and some of our upper-echelon guys.

“A lot of people would be intimidated by Brock. I think I could bring something special to a match [with] Brock. You used to see a guy like Daniel Bryan bring special nuances to matches with certain opponents very specific to them. I think I carry that same quality or have the ability to.

“So, a guy like Brock and a guy like Bobby Lashley, who I’ve had short matches with, but I feel like I could really get a lot out of all these guys in lengthy programs. So yeah, there’s a lot.”
