#4 Kurt Angle predicts the KOTR winner
We are currently in the midst of a new era in WWE. No longer does the WWE programming focus only on a select group of individuals, but young up and coming Superstars are being given ample opportunity to shine.
The best example of this new trend is the ongoing King of the Ring tournament where Superstars such as Ali, Cedric Alexander, and Chad Gable have made a mark. Former WWE Champion Kurt Angle had some high praise for Gable in his Tweet:
was never an underdog. I knew early on how great he is, and was. He’s now getting the opportunity to prove how f’ing great he truly is. They say he’s the next Kurt Angle. He is not!!!! He’s Chad Gable, and he’s gonna win King of the Ring!!!!
While the former Tag Team Champion is finally getting recognition for being a tremendous athlete, the road wasn't easy for Gable. In an interview with PWInsider, Gable revealed all of what he had to do in his career so that he would get Vince McMahon to acknowledge him and allow him to do something worthwhile.
