There is a long, unfortunate history of young and promising athletes dealing with injury bugs that they were never quite able to shake — Ken Griffey Jr., Greg Oden, Robert Griffin III and many more. Let’s hope the recently medically cleared Chad Gable does not fall into that same category … but there is reason to believe that maybe the New Era star came back too early from his knee injury.
American Alpha fought with valor against The Usos, but it was clear that Gable had rushed back from his Uso-caused injury that eliminated them from title contention several weeks ago. Jimmy & Jey targeted the former Olympian’s knee, essentially eliminating him from the match, and Jey was able to defeat Jordan with the Samoan Splash to have The Usos become the new No. 1 Contenders for Heath Slater & Rhyno’s SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
