Fans will certainly remember the storyline between Drake Maverick and his wife Renee Michelle, where Maverick was involved in the WWE 24/7 Title picture. Drake Maverick always managed to make the best out of any storyline he was a part of. It seems he was almost released earlier this month.
As reported earlier, Drake Maverick was released by WWE for a second time as he was part of the company’s latest slew of releases. His release came as a shock for many, but this time around he is more than ready for what lies ahead.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Drake Maverick was almost going to be released during the previous round of WWE cuts which took place on November 4th.
“Drake Maverick was a guy who almost got cut in the last cuts a couple of weeks ago, so it was like you could see with him 38-year-old, very entertaining, but not a guy that Vince will ever push. They can use him for comedy in the 24/67, but maybe Vince got tired of him, who knows what it was? So, he’s not a surprise.”
It was also said that Drake Maverick’s release was not a surprising one. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for the former WWE Superstar and which promotion he will call his home next.
