After costing Mustafa Ali two victories on WWE 205 Live with his campaign to put an end to high-flying maneuvers, Drew Gulak stepped inside the squared circle looking to ground the primary target of his animosity.
Gulak wasted little time applying holds designed to keep Ali grounded, focusing on his natural power to keep his opponent at bay. Gulak made it clear to his opponent that a high-flying offense wouldn’t work against him, and he relied on his uncanny ring awareness to keep Ali neutralized.

In a post-match interview, Gulak pointed to the match outcome as proof that his campaign is righteous. He also claimed he was exposing his vanquished opponent as nothing more than a showoff and promised he was the future of WWE 205 Live.
