General Interest

General
NATURAL ENTERTAINER
He says he enjoys entertaining people while competing. He has slapped opponents during matches and celebrated victories by performing flips. "It's very natural. I've been like this my whole life. The entertainer in me has always struck at the right time. I don't even think about a lot of things. Mid-match something will pop up, and I'll see it, I'll adjust and I'll do a little something to get the crowd into it. Here and there people like it or people don't. But at the end of the day, you're watching." (fightful.com, 30 Mar 2021)

MULTI-SPORT AMBITIONS
He hopes to follow in the footsteps of his idol Brock Lesnar and compete professionally in mixed martial arts and American football, and perform in professional wrestling with World Wrestling Entertainment [WWE]. "I'm very interested in the entertainment aspect of things. I love acting and all that stuff. My goal for a long time now has been to be in something like this [professional wrestling]. But there's a lot of opportunities out there. I love fighting too, and hopefully one day I can also step into the octagon [in the Ultimate Fighting Championship]. But one thing that's really stuck in my mind has been [American] football. It's going to be a lot to learn, and respect to those guys in all those fields, but I want to get out there and hopefully touch the field one time, and recreate a legacy just like Lesnar did, but put my own spice on it." (fightful.com, 30 Mar 2021)

FAMOUS NAME
His mother named him after US freestyle wrestler Dan Gable, who won gold in the 68kg category at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. (mndaily.com, 29 Nov 2018)
