Mike Kanellis def. Jackson James

Drake Maverick snaps on Mike Kanellis: WWE 205 Live, July 16, 2019

Mike Kanellis trades verbal barbs with WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick after defeating and pummeling Jackson James, and after being insulted by Kanellis several times, Maverick suddenly attacks The Opportunist.

With his wife Maria watching from the locker room area, Mike Kanellis approached the ring with focus and intensity, ready to unleash his frustrations on his opponent, Jackson James. Kanellis wasted little time picking his opponent apart, taking his time to dish out as much punishment as possible before finally putting James out of his misery.

After the match, Kanellis continued to attack his vanquished opponent before grabbing a microphone and calling out WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick. The former 24/7 Champion made his way to the ring to confront Kanellis and allow The Opportunist to publicly air his grievances.

Kanellis explained that he resigned with WWE to prove to his wife that he can win the WWE Cruiserweight Championship and because he wants to fight Maverick. The 205 Live GM asked Kanellis if he really believed he deserved a championship opportunity. However, Kanellis got personal when he questioned Maverick’s performance issues when losing the 24/7 Championship the night before on Raw.

The argument continued to intensify when Kanellis insulted Drake’s wife, and the 205 Live GM swiftly attacked The Opportunist and drove him from the ring.
