Gable suffers knee injury, American Alpha out of title match at Backlash
Following a blindside attack from The Usos after their SmackDown Tag Team Championship Tournament Match earlier in the night, SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon revealed on WWE Network’s Talking Smack that American Alpha member Chad Gable’s MCL was injured and he would be out of actions for two to four weeks.
Because of Gable’s injury, he will not be able to compete at Backlash, thus eliminating American Alpha from title contention. In their place will be the winners of a match between The Usos and fellow semifinalists The Hype Bros which will also take place at Backlash.
