Drew Gulak Parts Ways With WWE

Drew Gulak Reportedly Parts Ways With WWE

It looks like former NXT Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak quietly parted ways with WWE following his loss to Daniel Bryan in the opening round of the WWE Intercontinental Championship Tournament on Friday Night SmackDown this week.

According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, WWE has released Drew Gulak from his contract.

Early speculation is that Gulak was released by the company after it was discovered that his profile page was moved from the active WWE Superstars section to the Alumni section of the roster page on the official WWE.com website this weekend.

The change was noticed soon after the aforementioned loss in the first round of the Intercontinental Title Tournament (see below), which kicked off on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown, with Bryan besting Gulak and Elias defeating King Corbin to advance to the semifinals.

Next week, AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and Jeff Hardy vs. Sheamus will take place on Friday Night SmackDown in the final opening round tournament matches.

Gulak joined WWE in 2016 following his debut in the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) Tournament. He is a former NXT Cruiserweight Champion and competed in the opening night Kickoff Show match at this year’s two-night WrestleMania 36 pay-per-view, losing to Cesaro in a singles bout to kick off the first-ever multiple-night, empty arena edition of the annual WWE extravaganza.

Embedded below is the final appearance for Gulak in WWE for this run, as he spoke with WWE.com in a post-show interview after his loss to Bryan in the I-C Title Tourney match on Friday Night SmackDown.

WWE has yet to comment on the apparent departure of Drew Gulak.
