WWE 2K23 Superstar Ratings: 10 Biggest Surprises & Snubs

9. Snub - Chad Gable (77)

Sami Zayn 2K

If WhatCulture were political cartoonists, then Matt Riddle's body in the above photo would be labeled "2K Games", and Chad Gable would have "Chad Gable's fans" scrawled over him. Frankly, you can count this writer among the latter group, as the leader of Alpha Academy has been ridiculously entertaining over the past year.

As well as living up to his always-high standards in the ring, Gable excels as a sports entertainer. Whether he's delivering lie tests, selling fear when he bites off more than he can chew, or relentlessly Shushing all his doubters, Gable has been one of the most consistently entertaining parts of RAW for a long time. Every time Gable is on screen, you know you'll see something that will make you smile - as either a fan of wrestling or sports entertainment.

As such, his 77 rating feels insultingly low for one of the WWE's best performers. Yes, Alpha Academy have spent much of the past year getting the stuffing knocked out of them, but Gable feels like a much bigger star than his lowly rating implies.

At the very least, he should be on the same level as his buddy Otis (80).
