WWE Firing Expected After Ronda Rousey Accusation

Ronda Rousey WWE

Ronda Rousey recently made an allegation of inappropriate touching against a current WWE star and some already expected them to be fired.

The culture in WWE has been under the spotlight in recent months after the bombshell lawsuit filed against Vince McMahon accusing him of sexual assault and sex trafficking. Behaviours in the company form part of that suit and several members of WWE management have been named as known about Vince McMahon’s affair with the former WWE employee at the heart of the situation.

Speaking to NewsNation, Ronda Rousey looked back on one unfortunate incident for her in WWE when she said one talent in the company grabbed at her sweatpants while she was walking by:

I was standing there and this guy I was barely an acquaintance with grabs the string of my sweatpants as I’m walking by…and nobody reacts as if this is abnormal, and he’s going down the hall and I’m like ‘what the f*ck is that? Why are you grabbing the string of my sweatpants? If my husband was standing there next to me, would you feel comfortable walking up to me and grabbing the string of my sweatpants?’

All the guys around me were like, this is part of the day. And if this guy was 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 I’m not in the hallway?

Ronda Rousey & Drew Gulak Have Different Version Of Events

Rousey later clarified that she was talking about NXT star Drew Gulak. Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez noted that there had been those in WWE who expected Gulak to be fired after the allegation

It was Tuesday when this story came out and there were people there who thought ‘Gulak’s probably gonna be gone tomorrow.’ And he’s not gone, I don’t know what that means.

Dave Meltzer then noted that he didn’t expect Drew Gulak to be gone right away as there would likely be an investigation of sorts into the issue before any decision like that was made. Meltzer did note that the issue for Drew Gulak should anything come of this is that he is “expendable” and that could mean he doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt and stated that if nobody backs Gulak’s version of events up he could be in a lot of trouble.

Drew Gulak has given his version of events regarding the situation noting that he believed it was a simple accident and he apologised immediately to Rousey.
