Article: GoMN.com – A MN Wrestling Success Story, ‘Chad Gable’ Set For WWE Smackdown In St. Paul

WWE Smackdown emanates live from the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Tuesday night, and there will be a Minnesota native among its top stars.

While University of Minnesota wrestling alum Brock Lesnar steals the spotlight as the “hometown favorite” when he appears with the WWE in the Twin Cities (even though he’s from South Dakota), the man going by the name Chad Gable is the real Minnesotan deal.

Gable is one half of “American Alpha,” lining up along with fellow former amateur wrestler Jason Jordan for the WWE Smackdown brand, where they don’t just compete as a tag team, they compete as the tag team champions.

He’s really called Chas Betts from St. Michael. After showing interest in wrestling from an early age, he came through the top-quality youth wrestling program at St. Michael-Albertville High School, winning a state championship in 2004, the Pioneer Press reported.

He then won a scholarship for Greco-Roman wrestling at the University of Northern Michigan’s Olympic Education Center.

If you take a look at some of the newspapers from five years ago, Betts was a regular feature as the then 25-year-old qualified for the London 2012 Olympics by winning an all-Minnesotan final in the 84-kilogram Greco-Roman class, beating Northfield native Jordan Holm.

He unfortunately didn’t make the medals in the Olympics, with SB Nation reporting he fell to Cuban Pablo Shorey Hernandez in the quarterfinals, though he still described the experiencing of competing at the Olympic level as “amazing and kind of unreal.”

The New Day for American Alpha

After beating every duo thrown at them during their historic 483-day Raw Tag Team Title reign, The New Day could use some new competition. SmackDown LIVE would need to crown new champions, but it’s a small price to pay for getting such a dynamic trio.

Why Raw should do it: Chad Gable & Jason Jordan have a future so bright that opponents need sunblock whenever they’re in the ring with these blue chippers.

Why SmackDown LIVE should do it: SmackDown LIVE welcomes a trio who redefined tag team competition to lead a division of upcoming squads like The Ascension and The Vaudevillains.

American Alpha def. Breezango

Fresh off their win in Tag Team Turmoil at Elimination Chamber and over The Ascension last week, American Alpha kept the momentum going when they fought their way back from an early ambush from Fandango and Tyler Breeze to defeat Breezango in convincing fashion this week on SmackDown LIVE.

However, immediately after their win, The Usos called out Chad Gable & Jason Jordan again, this week from the crowd. Ultimately, Jimmy & Jey did not seem ready to engage in combat and instead told them to lie awake knowing that “it’s not paranoia … it’s The Usos.”






Kurt Angle Mentions American Alpha In Recent Interview With Gorilla Position

In a recent interview with Gorilla Position 2017 WWE Hall Of Fame inductee, Kurt Angle, admitted that he would be interested in managing the current Smackdown Tag Team Champions, American Alpha. Here’s what he had to say:

Kurt Angle told Gorilla Position that he would be interested in managing Smackdown Tag Team Champions American Alpha.

Angle, who won six world titles while competing for WWE between 1998 and 2006, will be inducted into the company’s Hall of Fame in March.

The 48-year-old hopes to wrestle for WWE again but says he would also be keen to nurture Chad Gable and Jason Jordan, who won Smackdown’s twin titles from The Wyatt Family in December.

Angle took gold in freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, while Gable competed in the Greco-Roman class at the 2012 Games in London.

“I love watching American Alpha,” said Angle. “They have such a gift.

“They remind me so much of Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin in the old Team Angle, while this Gable kid also reminds me a little bit of myself, so I would be happy to manage them to some extent.

American Alpha def. The Ascension

Having overcome the odds and a hellacious beating at the hands of The Usos during the Tag Team Turmoil Match Sunday at Elimination Chamber, American Alpha looked to continue their hot streak against The Ascension on SmackDown LIVE.

Though Konnor & Viktor have been impressive in recent weeks, in the end, the SmackDown Tag Team Champions reigned supreme, defeating Viktor with Grand Amplitude for the win.

As the dust cleared, there would be no rest for Jason Jordan & Chad Gable as Jimmy & Jey Uso appeared on the TitanTron and made it clear that The Usos would be watching them at all times.
