Drew Gulak’s final match in WWE was against Daniel Bryan on Friday Night SmackDown, or was it?
Gulak’s WWE contract expired because they couldn’t work out a new deal. He is now free to work where ever he likes since there is no 90-day non-compete clause when a contract expires.
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez brought up the Drew Gulak situation. It was said that it is not a dead issue between the two sides at all. In fact, they could come back and figure out a deal at this point.
“Gulak’s contract expired after Friday’s show as both sides had not reached a deal on the money. The belief is he is gone, but it has been hinted to Dave [Meltzer] that it’s not a dead issue. He is represented by [agent] Barry Bloom in this negotiation. So it does appear that Drew Gulak is interested in returning if he gets a good deal.”
Drew Gulak asked for a raise, but then WWE pulled the contract that they already offered him. The entire situation is about money which wouldn’t have been an issue months ago when WWE was giving out huge contracts.
There is always the chance that the two sides can work something out and Gulak will see his WWE return. Right now it seems to be up in the air.
As we previously reported WWE doesn’t seem too concerned about their former Superstars ending up in AEW. This could be an interesting situation.
