Drake Maverick has been in a very interesting position since being released by WWE. He is still performing on NXT as part of the Cruiserweight Championship tournament and frankly, has been getting pushed. While many have questioned whether this is a work or not, Drew McIntyre is simply happy to see Maverick excel.
In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, McIntyre discussed Maverick’s current push. He also said this is the real Spud, referring to Maverick’s time as Rockstar Spud. Here is the full quote:
“It’s the real Drake Maverick. That’s the real Spud. He is very, very passionate about this industry, much like myself. He’s always wanted to do it. He’s [given] his entire life to it. You know, again, in the situation that he was in, he just put his heart on his sleeve and just told the world, ‘I’m still going to keep doing this’.
He would and he’d be successful wherever he went – but I think he’s so capable of multiple different roles, not just in the ring. He’s so talented when it comes to his mind. He could be writing the show, he could be helping with characters, he can be on the show, he can be a manager. He’s so multi-talented and I do think, going off of this storyline, which he created himself, he will be around and he’s going to have a long future here, not just on camera but off-camera, too.”
McIntyre and Maverick spent a good amount of time together in Impact Wrestling. Therefore, if anyone in WWE knows the true potential of Maverick it is the WWE Champion.
