Drake Maverick’s tenure with WWE was full of ups and downs

Drake Maverick had a solid run with WWE, which even saw him win the WWE 24/7 Championship on eight different occasions. Maverick first started out as the manager of the 205 Live brand and was the on-screen boss of the cruiserweight superstars in the company.

In 2020, Drake Maverick became a part of the NXT brand and at one point, was even let go by WWE due to budget cuts. However, his release was put into a storyline and the former TNA veteran earned himself a contract offered by Triple H.

In the process, Drake Maverick was rehired by WWE and then he went on to form a tag team with Killian Dain. Together, the duo had a solid run in the NXT Tag Team Division but never held the NXT Tag Team Titles.

On the 25th of June, Dain was released from his WWE contract, which eventually ended his pairing with Drake Maverick. Dain’s now-former tag team partner, Maverick has now also been let go by WWE and it remains to be seen what's next in store for the former manager of 205 Live.
