Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion and WWE failed to agree on terms.
Drew Gulak is no longer under contract with World Wrestling Entertainment after his contract was allowed to expire.
Pro Wrestling Sheet first reported that Gulak had been released from his contract, but PWInsider was quick to state that he had actually had his contract expire. Dave Meltzer then confirmed that he had let his contract run out, after he and WWE could not come to an agreement on a new deal.
It appears that Drew Gulak asked for more money, and WWE chose to not move forward. His profile is now in the alumni section of WWE.com.
Gulak’s last match under contract was only 48 hours ago, in a losing effort to Daniel Bryan in the WWE Intercontinental Championship tournament.
He joined the promotion in 2016 as a part of the companies relaunch of the Cruiserweight division. He was a one-time Cruiserweight Champion, winning the belt in June of last year. He was drafted to SmackDown in October, where he remained until his departure.
Gulak has previously wrestled for CHIKARA, CZW, Evolve and many other independent wrestling promotions.
