CHIKARA and The Wrestle Factory have cut ties with Rory Gulak over allegations of misconduct.
Gulak was one of the trainers at Wrestle Factory, which was founded by Mike Quackenbush, and had been with CHIKARA as a regular since 2017.
The joint statement read:
Last week, both CHIKARA, Inc. and The Wrestle Factory, LLC severed ties with Rory Gulak
We take allegations of misconduct very seriously.
In accordance with this, we cooperate completely and transparently with all law enforcement agencies. Our priority is and always will be the safety of our fans, cast and crew.
