Shorty Gable will now be known as Shorty G … and he explained why on SmackDown.
Gable revealed his new moniker on tonight’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX during a passionate post match promo.
“I’m embracing who I am,” Gable told the crowd after defeating Curtis Axel.
“We all have insecurities, every last on of us. But tonight I stand here to say you can overcome! Do not run from them. Do not hide from them. Accept who you are! I accept who I am! I’m Shorty Gable,” he continued, before cementing his name change. “Actually, let’s shorten that up. I’m Shorty G!”
As you’ll recall, WWE trademarked the name Shorty G a few months ago. Not long after, wrestlers began making short jokes at Chad’s expense on TV sparking speculation over the name change.
