Drew Gulak’s exit from WWE following accusations by Ronda Rousey of inappropriate conduct sparked considerable discussion among wrestling fans. Rousey alleged that Gulak had grabbed the string of her sweatpants without permission. Subsequently, Gulak was released by WWE, and now his first post-WWE appearance has been confirmed.

During an interview on NewsNation, Ronda Rousey explicitly implicated Drew Gulak, recounting the incident where she confronted him for his actions. She described the encounter.

“Drew Gulak. Drew Gulak, that’s who it was. I confronted him later and I was like, ‘If I ever hear about you putting your hands on any other woman like this or doing anything like this to me ever again, we’re going to have a problem.’ He was like, ‘No, no, no. I’m glad you said something to me.’ He really backpedaled, but it put a sour taste in my mouth about the culture there and what’s considered acceptable on how to touch and treat the women in the hallways, and anywhere.”

While initially reported as part of WWE’s recent NXT talent cuts, Triple H clarified that Drew Gulak’s departure is not “release.” Instead, it’s a case of his contract simply not being renewed, resulting in his exit from the company.


Beyond Wrestling took to Twitter and officially announced that Drew Gulak will be part of their Americanrana 24: Where Eagles Dare show on July 4th, marking his first appearance after his WWE exit.

”BREAKING: @DrewGulak returns at “#Americanrana ’24: Where Eagles Dare” presented by #BeyondWrestling & @WrestlingOpen at White Eagle in Worcester on Thursday, July 4th with a special 7pm ET start time. Tickets will be available soon at @ShopIWTV . Stream LIVE on @indiewrestling !”

Drew Gulak was also accused of deliberately injuring other pro wrestlers in WWE. It remains to be seen whether Gulak will end up singing with another major pro wrestling company eventually.
