Chad Gable: I Love Grappling During Royal Rumbles, It’s The Best 30 Seconds You Can Have In A Match

Chad Gable loves to wrestle other performers that have amateur backgrounds.

It's no secert that Chad Gable is one of the most decorated amateur wrestlers to ever grace a WWE ring, especially due to the fact that Gable is able to showcase that style of wrestling on a weekly basis during his matches on Raw.

While speaking to Fightful for a recent interview, Gable was asked to name a wrestler that surprised him when they were chain wrestling inside of the squared circle.

"Gotch [Simon Gotch] is a funny one, for sure. You know who I’ve had fun with, you can look back and see some of these, is Xavier Woods or Dolph Ziggler. We would do these little things, especially Royal Rumble, so we did it at Saudi. Any Royal Rumble I’ve ever been a part of, I’ve done it, where you find a guy who has an amateur background and you say, ’Whenever we get in there, screw everyone else, we’ll just find each other and just wrestle. Shoot around for whatever amount of time we’re allowed to before the carnage and 40 other guys land on you. It’s so fun because you run in and you get in stance and just start wrestling. It’s the funnest 30 seconds you can have in a match. Those guys are legit too. You’re kind of having fun and rolling with each other, and then the old amateur wrestler kicks in and one guy starts going a little harder and you’re like, ‘Okay,’ and then it turns into a real wrestling match."

Elsewhere in the interview, Gable talked about the idea of doing a grappling match with a UFC fighter. Fans can learn more here.
