The story of how Chad Gable bagged his unforgettable ring name is quite an interesting one. Ever since he began his journey into the wrestling world, he has proven to be a far greater force than many initially imagined.
The wrestler first tasted a small-scale stardom as an amateur wrestler in the year 2012 at the Summer Olympics in London, where he competed and impressed many people. Riding on the success of his performance at the Olympics, Chad indicated interest and was admitted into the WWE in late 2013 after which he was subjected to serious training. The wrestler was later posted to WWE’s professional wrestling television program, WWE NXT, popularly known as NXT, and then to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, where he picked up the ring name Chad Gable.
Chad Gable’s Biography
Also known as Chas Bett, the former prolific amateur wrestler was born in Saint Michael, Minnesota, in the United States on the 8th of March 1986. Upon arriving into the world, he was named Charles Bett by his parents but he adopted the names Chas Bett and Chad Gable as his ring names after he stormed the wrestling world. The wrestler holds an American nationality but his ethnicity is not known to the public.
Also, he is yet to reveal if he has siblings, their names, where he spent his early childhood, where he had his high school education and other personal info. However, we can establish that Chad Gable graduated from Northern Michigan University but the course he studied and the year he graduated are hard to come by. Currently, he makes $200,000 from his career while his net worth is estimated to be $1.5 million.
Gable, on September 5, 2014, made his in-ring debut at a show organized in an NXT house in Cocoa Beach, Florida, and won against American wrestler Troy McClain. The wrestler made his first TV appearance on the January 8, 2015 episode of NXT but unfortunately, he was defeated by Canadian professional wrestler Mattias Clement, professionally known as Tyler Breeze.
The American wrestler started a new chapter in his career in mid-2015 when he joined forces with Jason Jordan. As teammates, the two won many fights, including their debut (which took place on the July 15 episode of NXT) against the duo – Steve Cutler and Elias Samson. Other teams Gable and Jordan out-smarted include, Neville and Solomon Crowe, the Hype Bros, The Ascension, and The Vaudevillains. The two officially adopted the name American Alpha on the January 8 tapings of NXT and eventually won the NXT Tag Team Championship at NXT TakeOver: Dallas. Chad and his partner were later drafted to the SmackDown brand during the 2016 WWE draft which took place on 19th July. They made their debut on the August 2 episode of SmackDown, defeating The Vaudevillains. Their hard work paid off when they finally emerged the winner of the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
Chad Gable’s highlights in the wrestling world include the two victories with Jordan. Currently, he performs under the brand, Raw, following the 2018 Superstar Shake-up.
The professional wrestler is the son of American parents Pam Betts (mother) and Pete Betts (father). At the time of writing, there is no information about Chad’s parents and the wrestler hasn’t commented about them in public. Nevertheless, the two seem to be very pleased with the career path their son has chosen. And it is not known if they have other children or not.
Chad is happily married to a beautiful American woman called Kristi Bett. She was reportedly born into a middle-class family and is said to have spent part of her early years in the United States. There is little information about the couple’s relationship, as it is not known when/how they met but we learned that they dated for one year and eventually got married in 2011.
Being someone who has a good reputation, Kristi has never been involved in any scandal or controversy, rather she has always been supportive of her husband’s career. Further details about her family background, education, and profession are difficult to come by. The wrestler and his wife share two lovely daughters together. Her second daughter, Meadow Ann was born on the 24th day of January 2018 but the name and birthday of their first daughter are yet to be publicized.
Body Stats: Height & Weight
The WWE superstar isn’t so blessed when it comes to height. He is of an average height but this has never posed a threat to his career. Chad Gable is 5 feet 8 inches tall (1.73 in metric units) and his weight is estimated at 92 kilograms, which is proportional to 202 lb. The colour of his eyes and hair is brown and light brown respectively.
