Former WWE manager Dutch Mantell said that he was glad to see Max Dupri finally walk out on Maximum Male Models.

Tensions reached breaking point as Dupri left ma.çé and mån.sôör high and dry during a photoshoot. He stated that he was fed up with their lack of wins and wanted nothing to do with the group, and stormed off after shoving mån.sôör.

On the latest episode of Sportskeeda Wrestling's post-show review, Smack Talk, Mantell explained that he doesn't see the Maximum Male Models succeeding in WWE. He mentioned that they were brought in as a comedy act and the company had no plans for them.

"It [Maximum Male Models] was dead on arrival, it's still dead and I still held out hope. I said, 'There might be something.' Then Top Dolla comes by and they made fun of them. When you got a comedy act, they're not gonna draw money, they're not gonna get over because they [WWE] don't have any plans for when they get over; they were just giving them something to do. They were actually pretty good models. They do their job well. So, you think Max Dupri will go back to being LA Knight?" [From 21:10 -21:45]
