Drake Maverick posts heartbreaking video; Kurt Angle, Rusev and more react to their WWE release

As reported earlier, a huge number of Superstars and Producers lost their jobs at WWE today. The COVID-19 pandemic has created a financial crisis globally and WWE wasn’t an exception.



One of the Superstars who was shockingly released in this unfortunate cleansing was Drake Maverick. Maverick has been a fan-favorite and a regular on TV and has gone to great lengths to make his programs entertaining for the fans.

Maverick immediately took to his Twitter to post his immediate reactions about his release from the company. Needless to say, the former 24×7 Champion broke down in tears while talking about this.

Maverick expressed his love for this job and also said that now the matters are much serious and this is about him feeding and providing for his family.


Other Superstars also took to their respective Twitter accounts to react to their release. WWE Hall of Famer and one of the greatest of all time Kurt Angle was also a part of this list.

Angle sent out a great message on his Twitter, expressing his gratitude towards the company.

Fit Finlay is a man who has been the single most influential driving force behind the Women’s Evolution in the company. Finlay kept it short and said that he’s been doing this for the past 4 decades and that he prays that it’d all be over soon while urging everyone to stay healthy.
