Why was Chad Gable in the finals of the KOR tournament?

It seemed very random that Chad Gable of all people went against Baron Corbin in the finals of the King of the Ring tournament.

Gable is a solid wrestler but is very lacking in just about everything else and there were way more deserving candidates from Smackdown.

Is there something that I'm missing?

I understand trying to make new stars but there were other guys from Smackdown like Andrade and Aleister Black that I thought were more deserving.

Wanted to give a fresh face a rub?

I think that King of the Ring was the perfect opportunity to elevate Aleister Black but Corbin was also a decent choice. Right away when I saw the finals matchup, I knew that Gable was losing to Corbin.

If Corbin was going to win from the start, why not try and test the waters with a guy lower on the card? I think Gable exceeded their expectations.

Don't worry, it's just random pointless shit. He'll soon join Buddy Murphy and the rest in catering.

Re: Why was Chad Gable in the finals of the KOR tournament?

Some inscrutable reason of Vince's is giving Chad Gable a push right now

Maybe it's to have another small guy fail to prove a point cause that's what Gable is going to do. He's not gonna pop a feud with Corbin and then he'll disappear again

Maybe Vince is giving him a legit shot for whatever reason including Vince does do nice things for people who work for him and always has

There has been an AEWakening... have you felt it?

The mark wars have begun again

Re: Why was Chad Gable in the finals of the KOR tournament?

Because the whole point of the King Of The Ring was to give Baron Corbin HEEEEAAAAAT. Who is best equipped to get Baron Corbin heat when he beats them than small, undersized, insanely overpushed olympic wrestler who is finally, after all these years getting a push, Chad Gable?

The idea is that you wanted Chad Gable to so badly get his opportunity at long last that when Baron Corbin won, you're even THAT much madder that once again, WWE has gone with predictable, stale, boring BARON CORBIN over Chad Gable, that you're INCENSED when Corbin won. He ticks every box the hardcore wrestling fan wants, and they used it against you.

I don't know how much heat Big Baldy Bastard Baron Corbin actually got because I didn't watch the finals because who gives a shit?, but that was the idea.
