As seen on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown in Orlando, Florida at the Amway Center on FOX, Chad Gable announced that he will no longer be known as Shorty G.
WrestlingNews.co reports that the reason for the change is due to there being several people behind-the-scenes pushing for WWE to do more with him.
A source told the media outlet, “Vince sees talent in him and he meant well with the Shorty gimmick but Vince might not want to push him all the way as a top guy because of his size. The agents and the writers want more for Chad but Vince can change his mind tomorrow and I think we all know that. Chad knows that.”
