In reports circulating late Saturday evening on Saturday May 16th by Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak was no longer with the WWE. Reports on Drew Gulak’s departure have ranged from a release to simply a contract expiration. Gulak first appeared in the WWE as part of the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016. Despite not being successful in the tournament, he made his mark in the CWC. However, it appears that Drew Gulak has re-signs with WWE. This news was reported by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.
Upon his arrival, Gulak’s character often would encourage that talent to engage in a ‘No Fly Zone’. This was evident in his feud with Mustafa Ali. His commitment and dedication to catch wrestling isn’t a departure from who he is in the ring. Drew Gulak’s departure is surprising considering he just competed yesterday against former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan.
In a tweet sent earlier Saturday morning, Gulak shared his continued training practices for Daniel Bryan. While accompanied by the hashtag #ThankYouBryan, Gulak aired a video demonstrating a specific workout.
Yes, #ThankYouBryan! 🙏 A tournament requires great strength. Today let's work on our shoulders with what I like to call #Gulakmetrics! You can do this simple exercise anywhere! All you need is an immovable object. https://t.co/YRg7xqZEtT pic.twitter.com/nCYITpq1ow
