Vince McMahon had his own way of booking things, and that included writing LA Knight as Max Dupri, male model manager as part of Maximum Male Models. Then Maxxine Dupri was brought in to fill out the stable before Triple H took control and really switched things up.
LA Knight got his NXT name back under Triple H, but Maximum Male Models carried on. Now, it appears that the stable is set to change again.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE is going to change up Mace and Mansoor’s union with Maxxine Dupri. It appears that the team went through a change under Triple H’s control.
Fightful has learned that Mansoor and Mace may be repackaged, with details few and far between as to what that means. Their time on the WWE roster as a team has been tumultuous. First, Max Dupri was put with the team because Vince McMahon hadn’t seen him as an in-ring talent, then rechristened LA Knight because Triple H and his regime saw star potential in him. Maxxine Dupri was effectively pulled from MMM and put with Chad Gable and Otis full-time. Interestingly enough, Maxxine was booked for a recent WWE party as a part of Maximum Male Models.
Those that we’ve heard from within WWE creative said that McMahon was originally high on Maximum Male Models, but didn’t want them to be “flamboyant.” That course was corrected under Triple H, who encouraged that. However, since Vince McMahon’s return, that has been scaled back significantly, as has their usage in general.
It was also noted that, “the duo worked numerous WWE live events in the spring, but have only wrestled on TV in tournaments and battle royals.”
We will have to see what is next for Maximum Male Models, but it appears that they are going through a bit of a facelift. Only time will tell what happens for all the members involved.
