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 will run right up to WrestleMania 34 with a new titleholder being crowned 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.
