Drew Gulak has other creative outlets besides wrestling.
Wrestlers have been writing books for years with Drew McIntyre being a recent example of a wrestler who has published his life's journey.
While Drew Gulak may not be as accomplished as Drew McIntyre in the WWE world, he's been wrestling since 2005 and has traveled all over the world.
Appearing on Awesome Truth, Gulak was asked if a book is potentially in the works.
"I try to be very humble, so to be like, 'I'm going to make my own memoir,' I don't know if I'm there yet to be able to do that. Something like a doc, I'd be happy to do. That's more my speed right now because I think there's lots of stuff I can learn and show. I have thought about doing a training book. I started working on one last year, but I never really had official plans for it. Writing is something I've been doing a lot of, especially the last couple of years with training stuff. Blogging is something I've done here and there. Never say never, but I'm not going to jump the gun. I want it to be the right time, not to just add to the stuff that is already out there," he said.
Along with books, wrestlers have been able to tell their stories through documentaries. WWE has put out original documentaries for years on DVD, WWE Network, and now Peacock.
Speaking about the WWE documentary crew, Gulak said, "If you're like a champion, you're constantly doing media, constantly. That's all sorts of live interviews, social media, 'Plug this, talk about this show, talk about this product,' on top of the storytelling elements on the actual show. It can be extremely demanding depending on what's going on with your storyline. For someone like me, I can pull them aside when they get time and be like, 'Hey, I have this idea, let's put it down and see how this works,' and they'll be like, 'Oh, this is great.' Then they put it up online and next thing you know, I'm campaigning for a better 205 Live. That's just the other side of things. It's an amazing tool we can use on both ends to promote and grow. It's crazy the amount of stuff they have going on. The documentary series' alone, there's an unsung hero in Joey Fatone who does such good work putting the year-long documentaries and the 24 documentaries and just collecting footage. There are a lot of guys collecting footage and they have a great mind for editing. There's probably 10-12 hours of stuff, on average, that they get down before they actually put something together. It's tedious work, being a documentarian."
Gulak ended by saying, "At the end of the day, we're people and we're relatable. The more you open up, the more people relate to you. Go figure."
Gulak is currently part of the SmackDown roster, joining the brand following the 2021 WWE Draft.
He is mainly featured on WWE Main Event.
