Update on Chad Gable’s WWE contract status amid AEW rumors

Last updated

WWE Superstar Chad Gable has been one of the performers that fans believe would be making a better shot at becoming a big name in wrestling by leaving the company.

There has been speculation that his WWE contract is close to coming up for renewal, however a report from Fightful Select indicated that isn’t the case for the former amateur wrestling star.

AEW star Dax Harwood tweeted that we would be seeing Chad Gable around May time, as this is when he would be ‘available.’ Obviously this has come and gone with Gable still a WWE contracted performer.

Will Chad Gable go to AEW?

Although there’s no indication of how long Gable’s contract goes for, Fightful said that it “still has plenty of time left on it.”

It’s worth noting that several AEW stars have said they will push heavily for Chad Gable to be signed by All Elite if and when he is available as a free agent, with the current SmackDown Superstar having a ton of untapped potential.

Many have compared Chad Gable to Kurt Angle in terms of Gable’s amateur credentials, but Gable does also have a comedic slant that he showed during his time on the NXT brand that was extremely entertaining.

As of now, Gable is still working alongside Otis as part of the Alpha Academy stable that at one point saw Daniel Bryan as one of the ‘trainees.’

Hopefully WWE will be able to give Gable a more prominent role on SmackDown in the coming months, away from the shadow of being Otis’ defacto manager.
