WWE: Drew Gulak And His PowerPoint Presentations Should Headline 205 Live
It’s about time Drew Gulak main events the 205 Live scene. While nobody is going to touch Enzo on the popularity scale, Gulak might be the second most over wrestler of all the Cruiserweights. Thanks in large part to his awesome PowerPoint presentations, a push should come for him in the near future. Does he have what it takes to become a headliner on 205 Live for the WWE?
At 30-years-old, Gulak has had plenty of experience outside of the WWE. He held the Combat Zone Wrestling TV title for 429 days. Along the way, Gulak has had stops in Dragon Gate USA, Pro Wrestling Guerilla, and Chikara. Although, the WWE is where he’s really gotten the chance to shine.
At first, Gulak wasn’t much when it came to personality. Given a lame and bland heel gimmick, he sort of just wasted away on the 205 Live roster. Suddenly, Gulak was given new life as a crusader for the brand. He wants to make 205 a better place. This includes things such as No Chanting and No High-flying.
WWE has had a tough time getting the casual fan to adopt the Cruiserweight division. Still, there are those who don’t yet believe in the 205 stars. Gulak has played the perfect heel. It’s unfortunate more don’t appreciate the job he is doing. In my opinion, he’s one of the best heel acts in WWE.
What does the WWE need to do to establish Gulak as a top star? They are doing a good job of it right now. Of all the Cruiserweights, they’ve given him a lot more time on 205 Live. He’s able to cut great promos and have pretty solid matches. The next step is to have him start feuding for the title. Although, as long as Enzo is the champ that won’t happen, as both are heels and moving one to baby face is a bad idea.
WWE has given Gulak some great competition. His programs with Mustafa Ali and Tozawa have been the highlight of 205. And he’s even getting some time on RAW. If they want to take this to the next step, set Gulak up with an NXT star debuting on 205. That could be Aleister Black, Cien Almas, or Johnny Gargano. Or possibly Kalisto when his feud with Enzo is over.
There’s a lot of untapped potential with Gulak still. However, his PowerPoint presentations are over and draw heat. That’s exactly what you want from a top heel. Also, WWE needs to keep this up for as long as they can. Consequently, Gulak can become a top star on 205 Live. And while he might not be the draw Enzo is, it’s enough that fans will still care.Follow @DGentleman9288
