Newer drywall is kind of like formed with super secret processes that make it very light. I have noticed it to be air entrained in the manufacturing process. There will be many air bubbles, which makes it look kind of like Styrofoam inside.

It should be stiff though, the paper faces add allot of rigidity. Once you take off the paper, it will crumble easily.

If it is wet, like a damp sponge, that is not correct. I wet the drywall with a damp sponge to make the paper face dark before laying kerdi. That is normal. You do not want to like soak it though.
