Drew Gulak


Throwback Match

Believe it or not I like posting blogs. I have a pretty cool Dell XPS 13 2 in 1 Laptop that I travel with and any excuse to use it is nice. I've been lucky to perform for an entirely new audience lately and many fans are surprised to find out that I have been wrestling all around the world for over a decade. I'm going to use #ThrowbackThursday as an opportunity to present some older matches that I've been a part of, whether it features myself, someone who I had a hand in training, or just something I like watching. I want to share what I enjoy in professional wrestling. Maybe it will help other people to expand what they like to watch? Maybe not? Either way here's this week's:

Drew Gulak vs. Biff Busick from Swamp Sessions July, 2012

This was my first time meeting and wrestling against Biff Busick, the man who currently goes by Oney Lorcan in WWE NXT. I had been working for Beyond Wrestling in New England for about two years here at this point and for entire beginning of 2012 promoter Drew Cordeiro would talk non stop about Biff Busick as if he was the second coming of Jesus. He had sent me a studio taping match featuring Biff against Kai Katana. and all I remember thinking was "Man, he hits very hard." When Drew told me the two of us would be wrestling against each other earlier in the week I was excited. I met Biff just before the event began and we barely talked at all before the bell.

Biff would go on to become Beyond Wrestling's biggest star for the next two years in Providence Rhode island. He's real good. This match takes place at Swamp Sessions in Massachusetts just before Beyond Wrestling upgraded their venue size and production to the current places they run in today.

Fun fact: This match also features the rare "mermaid" edition of trunks I'm wearing which were secured by Trent Seven a couple years prior.

Sprinkles! "Jimmies" to some.

So, Sprinkles the Clown showed up Tuesday on 205 Live. He was hired by Brian Kendrick to face Jack Gallagher in a duel although I'm pretty sure he had no clue about the table full of weapons.

I passed by our guest in the hall afterwards and tried my best to console him.

After getting ourselves cleaned up he came around.


What an AMAZING day at work!

Come and Take It

I just got back to our hotel room in San Antonio before Smack Down Live! and 205 Live, aka “Plaza del Nese et Gulak,” and I got to check out the town with a certain unbiased announcer who is most certainly not named Vic Joseph. I’m no stranger to traveling. I have been incredibly lucky to experience many different places around the globe. It’s an incredible way to grow and to learn, and it certainly is surreal to see some of the textbook images from my elementary school days become real life exhibits in front of my eyes. As a kid, I always took those things for granted, but there is a certain sense of fulfillment when so many years later I get to check those history lessons out in person. I had that feeling when I got to venture to Stonehenge a couple years ago, and I just had another one this morning.

The Alamo was never on my to do list. No offense to the city of San Antonio or the historic activities that took place here, I never get excited to sight-see. I take it for granted that we have so much history preserved in the USA. I believe that comes from living in Philadelphia all my life where there is a wonderful museum or a landmark every 20 yards. That said, I loved visiting the Alamo. It reminded me of being back home in Philly. Whenever there would be photos of the legendary fort I would see it up close or in an artistic rendering placing it out in the Texas desert. This is not true today. They built the city of San Antonio up and around the old monument. When you go into the outdoors exhibits they have the gardens built up so that you don’t get distracted by the neighboring skyscrapers. I could take in the experience in its entirety. It was a beautiful and moving experience that I won’t soon forget, and I highly recommend anyone visiting San Antonio to take a half hour and see it for yourself.
