Gable’s Tribute to Jordan
Following the news of Kurt Angle’s new son during Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live superstar Chad Gable wrote a lengthy Instagram post to his former American Alpha partner, Jason Jordan. Addressed to Jason Angle, Gable first thanked Jordan for launching his professional wrestling career. Gable highlighted the milestones he and Jordan had together as American Alpha, such as winning the NXT Tag Team Championship, being drafted to the SmackDown Live, and winning the SmackDown Tag Team Championship against The Wyatt Family last December. He also acknowledged personal moments where Jordan stood by Gable’s side during injuries.
In the Instagram post, Gable confirmed American Alpha is no more.
The lengthy Instagram post comes after Gable’s short Twitter response following the RAW segment where RAW General Manager Kurt Angle announced Jordan was his son. Gable’s tweet quickly attracted over 10-thousand retweets and more than 25-thousand likes within 16 hours.

Gable’s Solo Career
American Alpha, as a tag team on SmackDown Live broadcasts, has been infrequent during the last month. Gable competed in a singles match against then-United States Champion Kevin Owens and AJ Styles in recent weeks, which garnered praise from fellow performers, WWE alumni, and fans. SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan responded to Gable’s tweet last night.

American Alpha was the first tag team to win the NXT Tag Team Championship and later the SmackDown Tag Team Championship within the same year.
