Chad Gable Drafted To WWE SmackDown

He went unpicked on Friday...

Of the four selectable talents that went unchosen on Friday night's portion of the WWE Draft, one of them has since had their fate determined.

WWE announced hours prior to the Raw part of the Draft that Chad Gable will be staying on SmackDown, having been somehow selected on Monday afternoon.

The only three undrafted talents from Friday's pool are Mickie James, Lince Dorado, and Gran Metalik.

James is presently sidelined with a broken nose. Lucha House Party members Dorado and Metalik, meanwhile, were featured in a vignette with Kalisto (who was selected to remain on SmackDown), where neither seemed happy with Kalisto's sudden self-absorption, especially with the uncertainty surrounding their future as a trio.

Upon his call-up from NXT in 2016, Gable wrestled on SmackDown, alongside American Alpha tag team partner Jason Jordan. He remained on the show for close to two years before migrating over to Raw in the 2018 Superstar Shake-Up.

After a year spent on Raw (most notably in a tag team with Robert Roode), Gable moved back to SmackDown in the 2019 Shake-Up.
