American Alpha’s Chad Gable received praise following his SmackDown Live match against AJ Styles. The former SmackDown Tag Team Champion competed against Styles for the final slot in the Independence Day Battle Royal to determine the #1 Contender for Kevin Owens’ United States Championship. While most fans expected Styles to win the match, Gable still shined against The Phenomenal One.
After the match, Styles, while helping the Olympian stand on his feet, shook Gable’s hand.
On early Wednesday morning, Styles tweeted praise about Gable.

Gable’s July 4th match was his second singles match in recent weeks where his American Alpha partner Jason Jordan was not ringside. In an interview after his match, Gable said Jordan and himself “thrive on competition,” either tag team or singles.
“We support each other 100-percent, and we’re good. Wait till Jason gets his chance. He’s going to show the exact same thing I did. We can hang with any single guy on this roster. Not just any tag team like we’ve proven. Any single guy.”
While he lost against AJ Styles, Chad Gable said he won’t lose to the same people twice.
