Before the match, Kayla Braxton asked Shorty G why he is facing “The Freak” after witnessing the carnage Sullivan caused. G said he was fed up.

Notably, Shorty couldn’t get drafted on RAW, and he couldn’t get drafted on SmackDown; hence, he was out there to prove he belongs to the company. He was going to call out the big man and prove he belonged.

Sullivan came out, and it was a rather short match (pun not intended). Sullivan aced the Freak Accident and pinned G for the Win. After the match, Braxton asked Shorty how he felt. G said he quit and rolled out of the ring, struggling to keep himself up at ringside.

Shorty G is done with his old self

After his “quitting,” WWE official Adam Pearce met him and asked for an explanation. He asked if G actually left the brand and company.

However, Gable gave a reply that no one expected. G was done with this cartoonish character and did not accept the Shorty G moniker anymore. Moreover, Shorty was done being a jobber and “a happy little punching bag.”

Shorty also said that he would stop preaching how things get better after “acceptance.” To hyphenate his attitude change, he bragged about his past accomplishments at the Olympics and said they’re wide and need to be recognized. He’s now Gable… Chad Gable.
