This isn't a huge surprise, given that Gulak has occupied comedy-adjacent jobber spots in the past, but one can only hope that the former Cruiserweight Champion at least scored a pay-per-view payday for larking around in a giant turkey costume all night.
The Gobbler first showed up during one of the Kickoff Show's panel sections. Introduced by R-Truth, the Survivor Series 1990 debutant turned on the 24/7 Champion, winning his belt in the process. The Gobbledy Gooker's reign was a short one, however, as he was attacked by Akira Tozawa later on, before Truth struck once more, scoring his 45th run with the comedy strap after pinning Tozawa.
Survivor Series' events mean that the Gobbledy Gooker has technically worked twice as many televised matches as Gulak himself in November 2020.
Wrestling's top turkey of all time is best known for starring in one of wrestling's most poorly-received debuts ever, hatching from a giant egg at Survivor Series 1990 and dancing with 'Mean' Gene Okerlund. Unlike The Undertaker, Gobbledy's Final Farewell was a backstage assault.
