As seen during the July 22nd 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown, Maxxine Dupri (NXT star Sofia Cromwell) made her debut and hyped up next week’s beachwear collection segment with the Maximum Male Models.
It appears that Maxxine Dupri will be replacing Max Dupri (Shaun Ricker/LA Knight) as the leader of the faction. It’s believed that Max Dupri’s backstage promo from last week was designed to be his final one. Wade Keller of PWTorch.com reported the following…
“Max Dupri, sources indicate, had rubbed some people the wrong way and wasn’t fitting in so a decision was made by Vince McMahon a couple weeks ago to write him out of the storyline.”
“LA Knight” became a trending topic on Twitter with fans talking about the possibility of Ricker going back to his NXT gimmick now that McMahon has retired from WWE.
