The idiots who put the wallpaper up in my kitchen glued it right to the drywall, with plenty of glue additives! When we finally got all the paper off (we used DIF - and it was NOT an easy job), the dry wall in our kitchen looked like war-torn London! There are two things you can do: 1) float the wall using a lightweight joint compound, then sanding to smooth; or tear out the drywall and hang new (If I had it to do all over again I would have just torn out the drywall with all of the wallpaper on it, FIRST).
