Drew Gulak responds to Ronda Rousey’s allegations of inappropriate behavior: “Complete accident”

Former WWE and UFC champion Ronda Rousey shocked everyone recently by disclosing a horrible incident with a fellow WWE celebrity. Even though Rousey no longer worked for the Stamford-based company, she bravely opened up in an interview about being abused sexually by a coworker. 

Rousey’s allegations have pushed WWE into the public eye and shed light on the internal culture of WWE. Meanwhile, NXT star Drew Gulak—the accused wrestler—has spoken out by giving his take on the situation, which has added gasoline to the fire among fans.

Ronda Rousey accuses Drew Gulak of inappropriate behavior

Ronda Rousey has written a new book called “Our Fight” and given interviews to promote it. In them, she talks a lot about her time in WWE. She didn’t hold back while recalling her final exchanges with Triple H before quitting WWE last year and even criticizing Vince McMahon in her book. But now, the spotlight is on WWE’s internal culture, with Rousey publicly naming Drew Gulak in a recent controversy.

In a promotional interview, the ‘Baddest Woman of the Planet’ made a brutal charge about Drew Gulak, a fellow NXT wrestler who has been in the company since 2016. She told NewsNation about the eerie incident when Gulak grabbed the string of her sweatpants without any purpose.

She said, “One time I was waiting to go talk to Triple H in the writer’s room. I was standing there with Bruce Prichard and another one of the writers. This guy grabs the string of my sweatpants and no one reacts as if this is abnormal. He grabs it and starts going down the hall and I’m like, ‘What the fuck was that? Why are you grabbing the string of my sweatpants?”

She further added, “All the guys around me were just like, ‘It’s part of the day.’ I’m like, ‘If this guy is coming up to me and doing this kind of stuff to me when there are other people around, what’s happening to these other girls when it’s not in a hallway.’ That really put me on edge to where not only is this behavior prevalent, but it’s so prevalent that people don’t even realize it’s a problem anymore.”

In response to the fierce backlash, the accused wrestler, Andrew Gulak, took to Twitter to share his side of the story.

He took to Twitter to share the whole incident by penning, “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.”

Oh, hi, this is Md Robin Ahmed, a WWE fan and I everyday go through a slew of popular WWE stories on Sportszion. Watching Big Show's Showstopper was the beginning of my passion for WWE, though I have to say that his Chokeslam is not one of my favorite moves. Over time, my love for professional wrestling has intensified, mostly due to the Shield, and my all-time favorite wrestler in WWE is Big Dog. I would give everything to be able to be within a few feet of him to witness his iconic Superman Punch and Spear. My major is engineering, but I'm most happy when I'm doing something artistic that doesn't put me under any pressure. Watching them wrestle and discuss their matches is always fun for me. And I've finally discovered a career that gives me fun since it allows me to with my dream heroes lifestyle. So, Welcome! I'd love to hear from you on LinkedIn and Facebook.
