It has been confirmed that Drew Gulak is no longer with WWE.
I noted earlier that Gulak’s profile was moved from the active roster page on WWE.com and to the Alumni section, which usually indicates that a wrestler was let go.
This comes just one day after WWE aired the excellent match he had with Daniel Bryan on SmackDown. The match was widely praised on social media and Daniel Bryan took time on Twitter to thank Gulak after the match.
However, it doesn’t look like Gulak’s exit is part of the recent budget cuts that were made last month. Instead, Gulak’s contract expired and both sides were not able to come to terms.
Gulak was signed by WWE after wrestling in the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic. The 33-year old spent most of his time on 205 Live and while many people praised his work, it was only in the last few months that he got to show how great he is on a national stage when he was featured in a storyline with Daniel Bryan.
If you haven’t seen the matches, check out his bout with Daniel Bryan from the Elimination Chamber and check out the match from last night’s SmackDown.
Gulak will become a free agent and it would be hard to imagine that a company like All Elite Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Ring Of Honor and others wouldn’t be interested in signing him.
