Drew Gulak may not be with WWE much longer.

Ronda Rousey accused WWE star Drew Gulak of inappropriate behavior while backstage at a WWE show during an appearance on News Nation earlier this week.

She said, “Bruce Prichard and another one of the writers and God, I forgot his name. I can’t believe I forgot this guy’s name. It’ll come back to me, but I was standing there, and this guy that was like barely an acquaintance with, grabs the string of, like, my sweat pants as I’m walking by. And like, nobody, like, I wasn’t even looking at him, you know? And, I I looked down the hall, and I was like, I don’t know if I can swear on this, you’re gonna bleep me? It’s a quote, okay, by this guy grabs the string my sweatpants and nobody else reacts as if this is abnormal. And he’s like, he comes out, and he starts going down the hall. I’m just like, what is that? Like? Why are we grabbing the string of my sweatpants? Like, if my husband was standing here next to me, would you feel comfortable walking up to me and grabbing the string of my sweatpants, but nobody around me acted as if it was abnormal? Like they’re like, all the guys around me were just like, you know, this is part of the day, and I’m like if this guy is coming up to me and doing this kind of stuff to me when there’s other people around like what’s happening to these other girls when it’s not in a hallway or something like that. So that really really put me on an edge to, like, not only is this like behavior prevalent, but it’s so prevalent that people don’t even realize it’s a problem anymore.”

Gulak has issued a statement regarding the accusation:

“Backstage at a WWE event in 2022, I saw Ronda talking with a group in the hallway. I stopped to say hi and shake all their hands, and in an attempt to shake her hand, I accidentally touched her drawstring. Complete accident, and one that I had apologized to her for the mishap.”

Bryan Alvarez stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that many people in WWE expect Gulak to be released.

“It was Tuesday when this story came out and there were people there that thought man, Gulak’s probably going to be gone tomorrow. And he’s not gone today” Alvarez stated.
