Shorty G def. Curtis Axel

Chad Gable embraces life as Shorty G: SmackDown, Oct. 18, 2019

Gable battles Curtis Axel and, in the glow of victory, decides to take on the diminutive taunts hurled his way by taking on the name Shorty G.

Following a tough loss last week to King Corbin, Shorty Gable looked to bounce back against Curtis Axel on Friday Night SmackDown.

Despite Bo Dallas lurking at ringside, Gable would come at the veteran Axel with unmatched ferocity, weathering Axel’s best and finishing him off with the Ankle Lock for an impressive submission victory.

After the match, Gable would chat with Kayla Braxton, saying that his name change was not him running from his insecurities, but embracing them, going further to rebrand himself yet again by now wanting to be known as Shorty G.
