WWE reportedly looking to rename Chad Gable

Over the years, WWE has changed many star’s names for better or worse and it appears that the former NXT Tag Team Champion Chad Gable might be experiencing this change soon.

This week’s episode of SmackDown Live saw Shelton Benjamin play a joke on Gable where Benjamin put a sign on his changing room saying that he must be  “this tall” to wrestle in the King of the Ring tournament.

And per Wrestling Observer Newsletter, this angle could lead to some changes into Chad’s character and it could result in him being renamed ‘Shorty G’:

“WWE just trademarked the term Shorty G as a wrestling name and rumor had it Gable was going to get that name,”

It’s unknown whether WWE is going to repackage Chad Gable completely or just give him a nickname but people have already started reacting to this news negatively.

What do you think about WWE’s idea to rename Chad Gable to Shorty G? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

    They will just shorten his name to Gable.. He’ll win KotR to be King Gable… He’ll gain a ton of weight and need to be carried to ring while sitting on the throne.

    This article is old as the hills, yeah, but they are hardly known for being up to date.
    The rumours were circulating all day yesterday about Moxley being out of action and I even posted it on another AEW article after Mox confirmed it last night and yet it took them until today to report it.
    Pretty important news to get up straight away I would think, not wait 24 hours after the story broke and 12 hours after it was confirmed.
