Drew Gulak reportedly leaves WWE following contract expiration

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Drew Gulak is no longer under WWE contract. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com reports that Gulak’s contract with the company expired following the taping of his match with Daniel Bryan that aired on Friday’s Smackdown television show. WWE has already moved Gulak to the alumni section of its website. Read more at PWInsider.com.

Powell’s POV: Johnson notes in his story that the two sides had been negotiating a new deal and were unable to come to an agreement. For what it’s worth, I put Gulak in the same category of Timothy Thatcher, who I felt would have filled a major need for AEW due to his in-ring style before he ultimately signed with WWE/NXT. There’s no telling whether Gulak will end up in AEW, but I view him as a great fit on their roster.

  1. AEW? Really? Just how many wrestlers does a #3 promotion need on its roster? By my count, they have 56 male wrestlers & 18 females. Do you really think they need that many? Be truthful, don’t just spout the almighty AEW “We’re the best” propaganda.

    • It’s not about the number count to me. I feel there’s a need for mat based wrestlers on their roster. If that means they cut someone to make room then that’s their business, but I do see it as a real need for them. And I definitely don’t care if someone worked or WWE previously. I’m all for companies assembling the best rosters they can and I feel he would be a strong addition for them (and other companies for that matter).

      That roster could get dropped down to about 10 and 6 respectively and they’d lose nothing, and it would give them room to add people that can actually work.
