As previously noted, WWE released eight main roster wrestlers on November 18th 2021 including John Morrison and Hit Row.
Drake Maverick was one of the eight releases and he quickly posted a video on Twitter following the news of his departure. In the video, a motivated Maverick tells a deflated Maverick that his dream was to be a professional wrestler rather than a “WWE superstar” and he can’t be fired from being a wrestler as promoters will book him.
John Cena commented on the video…
“This is worth a watch. Very well done and very powerful message by a gifted performer.”
