WWE 205 Live General Manager; 24/7 Champion
Drake Maverick: Bio
Introduced to fans by SmackDown LIVE GM Daniel Bryan, WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick wants nothing more than to see his show soar to unparalleled heights.
Arriving on the purple brand with a bang in January 2018, the man in charge immediately established a new era and delighted the WWE Universe by announcing a 16-man tournament to determine a new WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Per Maverick, the epic tourney ran right up to WrestleMania 34, and Cedric Alexander defeated Mustafa Ali to win the vacant title in the finale on The Grandest Stage of Them All!
Maverick wears his passion on his sleeve every time he speaks about his vision for 205 Live, declaring his desire to make sure Team Purple lives up to its moniker as “the most exciting hour on television” by touting the incredible abilities of some of the brand’s top Cruiserweights and doling out tough love to underachieving competitors in order to make his show that much stronger.
Maverick is also no stranger to the red brand, as he formed an alliance with AOP and guided the monstrous tandem to the Raw Tag Team Titles before becoming obsessed with pursuing and defending the 24/7 Championship in parking lots, the backstage area and even at his own wedding!
