Drake Maverick was alongside the names to be let go by WWE on Thursday.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Maverick was originally on the list of names to be cut a few weeks ago. However, plans changed and he was spared at the time.
He was recently involved in the chase for the WWE 24/7 Championship on Monday Night Raw. Due to his size, Vince McMahon didn’t do much with him.
As noted, Maverick was prepared for the cut as he had already filmed a video to react to the news:
