“What a dumb thing to do” was allegedly said to reporter by WWE PR rep for asking Triple H about Drew Gulak

As previously noted, Paul “Triple H” Levesque was asked about reports that Drew Gulak was released from WWE during the 2024 WWE Backlash: France PLE press conference.

Reporter Lucas Charpiot spoke with PostWrestling.com about asking the question to Triple H and the following claim was made…

“One of the PR (public relations rep), as soon as I asked my question to Triple H, said to me ‘what a dumb thing to do’. So I knew there was going to be backlash online… Yes. (Somebody from WWE PR said it was dumb to ask my question) Right after I asked it, he looked at me and said ‘what a dumb thing to do’” (quote courtesy of WrestlePurists.com)

In response to Charpiot’s comments, entertainment writer Herb Scribner gave his own thoughts on attending a WWE media event via Twitter/X…

“This tracks with what I experienced at WrestleMania. The PR team called on specific people, reporters weren’t allowed into the presser despite being told to attend it, different reps had different attitudes and directions. Just seemed like a mess. I asked a PR person if all questions were on the table and he responded with a yes, but also joked about the show’s overall vibe being positive. Just a fascinating press/PR situation there.”

“Seeing this is getting some views so I’ll just add that my main PR rep was very apologetic to some of the issues and helped me get some extra coverage that others wouldn’t allow. I also heard through the grapevine that the PR team had fewer members than in years past, which may account for some of the misunderstandings!”

“Also should add that some reporters attended the presser, but some were denied entry even with credentials due to space reasons.”
