Why are we calling the baby by his real name when we're announcing this? It's so stupid and makes the product look even faker. Call the baby Gable, elsewise don't even announce it.

How does Chad Gable, in storyline, father a child that DOESN'T HAVE HIS NAME? This is a complete exposé on the business.
Guess kayfabe's not getting any deader, they've completely given up on selling themselves as any shade of legitimate or real.

It's ridiculous. They talk all the time about his performances in the 2012 Olympics. There was no Chad Gable in the Olympics, that was all Charles Betts. If they're going to draw on real life they should at least use real names, or ring names that someone might actually use.

I guess we're supposed to believe that a dude with a generic name with an Olympic history changed to some other generic name, then based his nickname on the new generic name because he's proud of who he is.

This bit of background information certainly helps explain why he's fine with being a mid card comedy act with a fucking stupid name. He's got a pretty big family to feed, and it's more important that he keeps the paychecks rolling in, than has a respectable career.

Honestly I could care less about wrestlers birthdays, them having kids, getting married/divorced, whatever unless it's in a kayfabe story line. Like seriously, who cares? Congrats they have done something that has been done billions of times before. Hardly thread worthy.
