As noted, tonight’s WWE SmackDown from Madison Square Garden saw Chad Gable defeat Shane McMahon in a 2 of 3 Falls match to advance to the finals of the 2019 King of the Ring tournament, which will take place on Monday’s RAW from Knoxville instead of Sunday’s WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view.
Gable will face Baron Corbin in the finals.
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle took to Twitter after SmackDown and once again praised Gable for his King of the Ring performance. Angle predicted Gable will win it all.
He wrote, “@WWEGable with the ankle lock. My boy is in the King of the Ring finals!!!! So proud of you my friend. You’re gonna win it all. #itstrue #Olympians #KOTR2019”
You can see Angle’s full tweet from tonight below, along with the post-KOTR match tweet from last week that we covered:

To me, @WWEGable 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!!!! #itstrue #KOTR2019
