The departure of Drew Gulak from WWE following allegations made by Ronda Rousey obviously made a ton of headlines. Therefore, a journalist decided to ask Triple H about the same at the Backlash press conference but it appears a WWE PR criticized the journalist for asking the question.

During the Backlash post-show press conference, journalist Lucas Charpiot asked Triple H about rumors concerning Drew Gulak’s release from WWE. In response, Triple H told the journalist to choose better news sources, a comment that led to a lot of controversy on social media.

“If you’re going to cite news sources, pick good ones. That’s where I would start — credible, really, maybe. We release talent all the time. It’s a part of what we do. You just can’t hire people, bring them in, keep hiring more people, and just keep bringing them in. An unfortunate part of the job is talent get released. Can I say that he was released? He was not released. His contract was just not renewed.”

Following this incident, Lucas Charpiot shared with Post Wrestling that a WWE PR representative criticized him for bringing up the question, stating that it was a dumb thing to ask.


I heard almost immediately after I said the new Drew Gulak that there was a sense in the room ‘why is he asking that question? What’s his problem?’ People were like, as if I was attacking their leader. I was paid to be a journalist, I was not paid to be a fan in the room.

One of the PR, as soon as I sent my question to Triple H, said to me, ‘What a dumb thing to do.’ So I knew, there was going to be backlash online, but…”

Drew Gulak was also accused of deliberately injuring other pro wrestlers in WWE. It remains to be seen what’s next in store for Drew Gulak, but it is also shameful WWE would treat the journalist’s question in such a way.
