WWE’s Shawn Michaels took part in a pre-WWE NXT Heatwave media call on Wednesday and discussed several topics, including the recent releases of Drew Gulak and Gable Steveson from their WWE contracts.

Michaels said that from his understanding, Drew Gulak’s contract with the company was up, and that there were no plans in place for him to be called up to the main roster. Michaels put over Gable Steveson’s athleticism and noted that he is someone who lands on his feet no matter what.

Michaels noted that the company say that they use people to the best of their ability, but that if it is determined that there is no real future on the main roster with a few years of them being around the company, then it is his understanding that management chooses to move on.
