After a fun & entertaining match with involving a cavalcade of stars we returned to the gorilla position to smiling faces & a rounds of applause.

"Needless to say, all thanks to the people I have had the pleasure of being around on the journey & this industry as a whole - I am in a blessed position in life. It owes me nothing yet I owe it everything. Thanks for reading - James"

Drake Maverick took a healthy approach to getting re-signed after his second WWE release

Maverick did things differently when he was released for the second time by Vince Mcmahon.

After his first release, Maverick posted an emotional video that worked for him. But the former 205 Live General Manager shared a well-produced video of an evolved version of himself following his second release.
