Drew Gulak on Rey Mysterio’s return:

“I was there on Raw. I was happy to see Rey Mysterio back who was a former Cruiserweight Champion…If we’re the current generation of Cruiserweights, there used to be a previous generation of Cruiserweights like Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, the best of the best….so Mysterio coming back and getting dismantled by Lashley was perhaps a mistake on his part. But I respect that he came back from an injury to extend his legacy.”

Drew Gulak talks being more focused than ever:

“I have never been more focused in my life. This will be my first WWE title defense in front of my hometown crowd of Philadelphia… I will be facing someone who I know very very well. And I am in the ‘nothing to lose’ camp… so it’ll be great to face [Tony Nese] again.”
