As announced tonight, Maverick stepped out of WWE with Hit Row (Top Dolla, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott & Ashante “Thee” Adonis), John Morrison, Tegan Nox, Shane Thorne and Jaxson Ryker.
The video is released from an older video Drake Maverick shared when WWE first posted it last year in April, but with a more uplifting message.
In the video, another version of himself comes in and gives him the following pep talk.
Look at you. You can’t shoot this one anymore. Get up. Are you doing well. I mean, everything they gave you turned into an instant, right? If they wanted you to be a manager, you made it work. If they wanted you to run 24/7, you made it work. They even tried to get rid of you. You did that too.
I don’t know what else to tell you. You are a success! You have always been successful, and you will continue to be successful. You did everything you said you were going to do in life. You are a success!
Look at me. Look at me. Hey. I know we’ve been here before, but we don’t belong here anymore. What was our dream? Come on, what was our dream? It wasn’t to be a WWE Superstar, was it? He had to be a professional wrestler.
You can’t be fired from a wrestling buddy. Someone is going to book you. Even an idiot like you. But what I’m asking you is to get up, because if you don’t get up, this whole trip, this whole dream is going to die. It will end. And we have so much more we need to accomplish here on this journey.
This will continue, but we won’t accomplish anything if you don’t get up! Come on, get up! What are you just gonna let this dream die for? Get up! We will accomplish everything! GET UP! GET UP! “
The video ends with Drake Maverick waking up and removing his shirt with the WWE logo on it. His phone rings then and he looks at it, smiles and walks away.
John Cena was one of many to react to the Maverick video.
Cena tweeted: “It’s worth watching. Very well done and very powerful message by a talented interpreter.
