Chad Gable Points Out Multiple Flaws In Weird SmackDown Live Angle

Depending on which stance you take as a wrestling fan, the segment that saw Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin defeat the Usos for the SmackDown Live Tag Titles only to lose after the decision was reversed, was either creative writing unlike anything we've seen in some time, or it was silly. If you ask Chad Gable, who was one half of the team who ended up not winning the belts, it was more the latter.

Understandably, Chad Gable was less than impressed when another referee came down to the ring, discussed the match, showed an instant replay and from that,  the designated official made a judgment call to restart the match. Even a day after the match, Gable is still up in arms, using social media to explain how he and Benjamin were cheated out of their titles.

In a Twitter post, Gable goes step-by-step through what he believes was a "deplorable order of events."

While Gable is playing the heel character here, he does have a point. Not only is the WWE a place where this kind of bending the rules in tag matches goes unnoticed and often unpunished, but when was the last time an instant replay was brought out during a match to influence the referee to change his ruling?

Blaming the technical crew and the "random referee", Gable wanted to know why both were a part of the match? Hilariously, the random referee decided to respond by saying, "Name’s Jason. Not “Random”. “Random” is my cousin."

This whole idea of mixing the match, the changed result, and social media is unique and interesting. Jason Ayers, who was the referee who came to the ring to discuss the outcome, has had a lot of fun responding to fans who are siding with Gable.

This type of approach to storylines could be something the WWE does more of. It allows the WWE Universe to feel like they are a part of the show, the heels get to act more heelish and the officials get to show their personalities. It's a win all the way around.
