Chad Gable Got A Masters Degree During The Pandemic

Chad Gable

Alpha Academy member Chad Gable is an on and off again contender in the tag team division. Working together with Otis, the two former amateur wrestlers are bad guys who use their superior strength and wrestling prowess to bully opponents. Gable hasn’t been on TV much nor has WWE given him a major title shot in the last year and a half.

And while we can speculate on the reason being he is too short or not charismatic, there might be a simpler reason. He has spent the last 18 months working on a Master’s degree.

The former Olympian revealed that he received a Master’s Degree through Full Sail University.
