Chad Gable and GUNTHER had this amazing main event [on Raw] and they came back and there’s nothing we can do but clap for that, that piece of business. Bringing family to a show, it’s as real as it gets, you know? And Chad did amazing and I do hope that Chad finds the Intercontinental Championship. I hope he finds it.”
