WWE Not Re-Signing Drew Gulak: Backstage Details Emerg

One Big Thing

WWE has decided not to renew Drew Gulak’s contract, set to expire next month, due to reported incidents of bullying and intimidation in the NXT locker room.

Key Points

  • Gulak’s alleged backstage incident with Ronda Rousey was not the main reason for WWE’s decision, but his public reply worsened the situation.
  • Gulak was labeled as a “bully” in the NXT locker room for targeting injuries of recovering talent.
  • In one incident, Gulak intentionally re-dislocated a wrestler’s finger during an NXT match.
  • Gulak was verbally reprimanded by Shawn Michaels and NXT coaches for purposely spiking an opponent during a 2023 NXT taping.
  • Gulak reportedly used intimidation tactics to prevent talent from reporting similar incidents.

Why It Matters

The decision not to re-sign Gulak highlights WWE’s stance on maintaining a safe and respectful working environment for its talent. The reported incidents of bullying and intimidation in the NXT locker room are unacceptable and may have played a significant role in the company’s decision to part ways with the 19-year veteran.

Gulak’s NXT Run

Gulak returned to the NXT brand at the end of 2022, joining the No Quarter Catch Crew alongside Charlie Dempsey, Damon Kemp, and Myles Borne. In April 2024, he was written off NXT television after being “killed” by the D’Angelo Family.
