Indy promotion CHIKARA announced the following on social media:
Last week, both CHIKARA Inc and The Wrestle Factory, LLC severed ties with Rory Gulak.
We take allegations of misconduct very seriously.
In accordance with this, we cooperate completely and transparently with all law enforcement agencies. Our priority is and always will be the safety of our fans, cast and crew.
Insane Championship Wrestling has also announced that Gulak has been removed from an upcoming event on February 1st.
Gulak is the younger brother of WWE star Drew Gulak and has done work for WWE as enhancement talent.
At this time, police have not officially made public what Gulak has been accused of. However, Twitter user @JennMint wrote the following about Gulak:
Since I’ve constantly been asked and repeatedly accused to making things up because I won’t share details, here’s the story of my experience with Rory Gulak (a thread).
Rory and I had a consensual flirtatious sexual snapchat friendship for awhile. He brought up pregnant sex A LOT which, while not super taboo, made me VERY uncomfortable. But he asked me if I’d ever watched beastiality porn more than once, right after online sexual encounters.
Also, our sexual encounters on snap were always very weird. I left them feelings very uncomfortable but could never quite figure out why. Then the beastiality comments started so I quietly stopped snapping him. I remained friendly with him on Twitter for some reason.
He would continually make comments about f***ing me while pregnant and about wanting to mount me like a dog. It was very uncomfortable. I quietly stopped snapping because nothing he did was illegal and the snapping was consensual. It just got very weird.
When I made that tweet yesterday, I started getting DMs from women with the same experiences. And without me telling my story their stories were all identical. Only some were worse.
One friend who I will not name out of respect for her privacy told me that he would talk about impregnating her then having sex with her in front of the child when it was older. He also brought up beastiality with all of them as well.
Since this story got out, I’ve spoken to numerous wrestlers who have taken issue with him over his predatory behavior and have heard stories of companies refusing to book him due to said behavior.
He is a predator. Period.
I am NOT accusing him of any sort of sexual assault. Our snaps were consensual. But the content of the conversation became non-consensual so I removed myself from the situation. I do not personally have firsthand knowledge of child porn, but I believe those who are coming forward.
I feel guilt about not taking any of this public earlier. But he wasn’t breaking any laws and out convos were consensual. But now that I’m hearing from all these women with the same story I wish I had forward so that maybe they wouldn’t have gone through the same experience.
Kudos to Chikara for removing him from their roster and contacting the police. But shame on the promoters and his peers who KNEW he was predatory to women and did nothing. And thank you to the ones who refused to book him, removed him from locker rooms, etc.
Also, a huge thank you to the people in the wrestling business who reached out to me today concerning all of this. Wrestling is full of a lot of trash people, but there are some amazing humans as well.
