Drake Maverick Loses NXT

Drake Maverick Tries to Keep WWE Career Alive on NXT [Spoiler]

Drake Maverick was wrestling tonight on NXT in the Cruiserweight Tournament. His hope, if he won, would be that he could keep his run in WWE alive, try and win the vacant Cruiserweight Title, and potentially win his job back.

Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way.

In the first round of the tournament, he lost to Jake Atlas in a matter of minutes via a top rope spinning DDT. You can see some of the highlights of the match below:

And with that, Maverick is now officially done with WWE. This is likely not the end for him in wrestling, but he may be hard-pressed to find work with Raw, SmackDown or NXT, even if the company does hire some of the recently released stars back.

Perhaps he’ll consider going back to Impact Wrestling where he worked for quite a few years.
