Chad Gable says his injury kept American Alpha from a championship match.
In September, Gable was injured shortly after he and Jason Jordan were drafted to Smackdown Live. Gable spoke with Evening Express about his mentality on American Alpha's future. First, he described American Alpha's journey thus far.
“We have made an impact straight away after being drafted in. However, we have only just scratched the surface and there is still a lot to do. We were happy to start at the bottom and then make our way up until we reach the top.We wanted to come in and chase the title immediately. We wanted to be the champions and establish the credibility we think we can bring to titles like that. Unfortunately the injury happened and we got taken out of our title shot," said Gable.
Gable was insistent American Alpha would not be slowed down. He says their time will come. The most important thing to Gable is focusing on the future.
“However, we will not dwell on the past, we will move forward.We are going to make sure people are talking about American Alpha. That way when the next title comes around they will say these guys deserve to have a shot," said Gable.
American Alpha is a part of Team Smackdown going into WWE Survivor Series. The tag-team will be wrestling in a elimination match with nine other tag-teams.
Chad Gable and his tag-team partner Jason Jordan can be seen on Smackdown Live each Tuesday at 8pm.
