Ronda Rousey may be done with WWE, but she’s been a big topic in the wrestling world recently as she’s been openly talking about her experience working with the company. Recently Ronda Rousey appeared on News Nation and claimed that Drew Gulak grabbed the string of her sweatpants when she said the following:

“I was standing there, and this guy who I was barely an acquaintance with grabs the string of my sweatpants as I’m walking by. Like, I wasn’t even looking at him. This guy grabs the string of my sweatpants, and nobody else reacts as if this is abnormal.

“He grabs it and he starts going down the hall and I’m just like, ‘What the f**k was that?’ Like, why are you grabbing the string of my sweatpants? 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. All the guys around me were just like, 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, what’s happening to these other girls when it’s not in a hallway or something like that? So that really put me on edge to like, not only is this behavior prevalent, but it’s so prevalent that people don’t even realize it’s a problem anymore.

“Drew Gulak, that’s who it was. I went and 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 gonna have a problem’.

“And he was like, ‘No no, I’m glad that you said something to me’. He just really like backpedaled and everything like that. But it just put a really sour taste in my mouth about the culture there and what’s considered acceptable, and how to touch and treat the women in the hallways, and anywhere.”

Fightful Select reports that Drew Gulak was pulled from several appearances over WrestleMania weekend. According to the report Drew Gulak was removed from his seat at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony after a producer noted that he was in close proximity to someone from Ronda Rousey’s inner circle.

Drew Gulak did not appear on NXT this week and the No Quarter Catch Crew titantron was edited to remove his name. Gulak was not listed on internal rundowns for the show, nor was he seen backstage during the tapings. There are said to be no creative plans for Drew Gulak at the moment and it was noted that there was not to be any mention of him on NXT.

In response to Ronda Rousey’s comments Drew Gulak issued the following statement:

“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.”
