Drew Gulak was the guest on a recent episode of “After The Bell with Corey Graves” and among many topics, he revealed that he was a circus clown before he signed with WWE. He said this was a part-time job for him. He also gave his thoughts on John Cena.
Here are a couple of highlights from the interview:
Gulak talking about John Cena: “Any chance I ever had to interact with John Cena, he has been the most generous guy with his time and he really does love this. He would sit and watch 205 Live every night after Smackdown because he wanted to. He would be giving out advice all the time.”
Gulak on what he did before wrestling: “One of my part time jobs before WWE happened is I worked as a circus clown for Jewish kids. I used to work at a recreation center. I was a swimming instructor…Northeast Philly has a strong Jewish community. One of the other instructors said she needed somebody to help her. She worked as a clown. I would have to put on the rainbow wig and I would go all out and get as crazy as I could. I would wear crazy colorful shirts and pink socks pulled all the way up. We would go to a synagogue or a Jewish Hebrew school in the area and entertain them for a while.”
