A few weeks ago, SmackDown witnessed the debut of former NXT star LA Knight. However, he was rebranded as Max Dupri. The superstar revealed that he owns an agency called Maximum Male Models. A few weeks later, Dupri was confirmed as an active superstar on SmackDown.
The former IMPACT star was again seen interacting with WWE Official Adam Pearce this week. Following their latest conversation, it has now been confirmed that Dupri and his Maximum Male Models will reveal their first acquisition next week.
Adam Pearce took to Twitter to reveal his stance on the segment. He also guessed that the agency's first recruit could be a close and personal friend of Dupri:
"I assume it’s a close, personal friend of his."
