After dropping the Cruiserweight Championship on the 10/09 episode of NXT to Lio Rush, in what was a cracking match, Drew Gulak was moved over to SmackDown as part of the WWE Draft.
Many people thought they’d finally get to see the immensely talented technical wrestler show what he is able to do on the big stage. However, that has not been the case.
In the months that have followed, Gulak has wrestled on SmackDown three times, losing to Braun Strowman, and fellow former 205 Live stars Kalisto and Mustafa Ali in singles competition.
As a result of WWE mistreating him, many people have said that Gulak should request his release and return to the independent scene in 2020. However, there is no word on when his current contract is up, so stay tuned for the latest on that.
Now it has been speculated, based on his recent trademark activity, That Gulak may indeed be preparing for life after WWE.
Prior to signing with Vince McMahon’s company, Gulak was part of a popular stable in EVOLVE known as Catch Point. The faction also boasted the likes of Stokely Hathaway (now NXT’s Malcom Bivens) and Matt Riddle.
If reports are to be believed, then Gulak filed to trademark the name on December 27, 2019. Please note that it is unclear whether he did this incase he is granted his release, so stay tuned to WrestleTalk.com for the latest on that.
Some have said that should Gulak return to NXT instead of leaving the company, which could be a great move for both parties, then he could start a new Catch Point faction that could elevate him to the top of the card.
