Drew Gulak, who appeared on SmackDown last night in a match against Daniel Bryan, is now a free agent after his WWE contract expired.
According to PWInsider, Gulak was not released. Rather, his contract expired last night. WWE and Gulak had been working on a new contract, but the two sides had not reached a new agreement. His WWE Superstar profile was quietly moved to the Alumni section earlier this afternoon.
Due to his contract expiring, Gulak is not held to the 90-day non-compete clause that is usually initiated after someone is released. Gulak is free to appear for any promotion during this time.
Gulak signed with WWE and was part of the Cruiserweight Tournament in 2016. Gulak was a mainstay on 205 Live, winning the Cruiserweight Championship once during that time. Gulak was drafted to SmackDown during the WWE Draft and had been teaming with Daniel Bryan in recent weeks.
It is possible that Gulak and WWE will agree to a new deal soon, but as of right now he is currently a free agent. We will continue to follow this story as more becomes available.
