As noted, WWE 205 Live will kickoff two house show events tonight in Lowell, MA. Tomorrow the brand will be in Poughkeepsie, NY.
205 Live star Drew Gulak recently spoke with ESPN, and below are some interview highlights.
On his experience thus far in WWE:
“It’s been really surreal,” Gulak said of his recent success in an interview with ESPN.com. “I’m basically getting the chance to revisit old creative stuff that I was able to experiment with at a different point in my career, and I’m able to see what that’s like under the banner of WWE. Now I have a whole new set of resources to kind of grow things and try things out.”
On the WWE Cruiserweight Classic:
“It was such a cool experience; you had this huge group of guys, these journeyman wrestlers from all different corners of the world, and we got to be on stage at WWE featured in a solo tournament,” said Gulak. “The first of its kind, with a special on the WWE that led to huge opportunities for everyone involved.”
On working with Enzo Amore:
“If you could picture a nice lake, clean water, real clear, some fish in there. There’s seaweed, kelp, maybe even some coral. Then picture taking a bomb and dropping it into the middle of that and setting it off. That’s kinda what it’s like with Enzo. He’s the bomb. He’s such a crazy personality, and you can’t help but react to him.
“For us, we’ve had a couple guys come through who had a noticeably different fan base, a noticeably different set of production or time spent on [building them up]beforehand and being added to our group,” said Gulak, “Getting someone like a Neville, an Austin Aries or a Kalisto come in here. Enzo is like a neon version of those guys.”
