Drake Maverick To Start Wrestling? + Velveteen Dream Has Heat

Velveteen Dream Has Heat

‘- Drake Maverick is currently juggling two roles in WWE as he is the 205 Live General Manager and is also the manager the tag team, The Authors of Pain. While he splits his time between RAW and 205 Live, there is a rumor from PWInsider Insider Elite that he will challenge Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy at the Royal Rumble. 

Murphy ended Cedric Alexander’s lengthy title run at the Super Show-Down from Australia and then won the rematch on TLC’s pre-show. As of now, there is no No. 1 contender. 

On 205 Live, Drake has been portraying a somewhat neutral General Manager, but his time could be up in the authority role since the McMahon family stated they are listening to fans and making a fresh start. And then weeks ago, The Authors of Pain lost their RAW Tag Team Championships to Bobby Roode & Chad Gable in a handicap match after Drake got pinned. 

Anyone who has seen Impact Wrestling will remember Drake under the Rockstar Spud gimmick. The character was over and he impressed WWE enough with his in-ring skills that they offered him a spot directly on the main roster as he skipped NXT.

– One of the biggest stars to come out of 2018 is NXT’s Velveteen Dream. The character has been a hit with fans and that could be because Dream is not afraid to speak his mind.

During Takeover Brooklyn IV, Dream wore pants that said “Call Me Vince” and it got people talking on social media. Then after a slew of NXT names were announced on Monday to be joining the main roster, Dream took offense that he would not be making the transition to RAW or SmackDown with the other six wrestlers. He told WWE fans to send out Tweets to WWE with several hashtags like #CallDreamUp.

WWE did not like being spammed and the tweets were eventually deleted. Later, Dream deleted all his other tweets and just restarted posting a few hours ago. Here are two tweets that were deleted yesterday; which some have read as shots taken at WWE.

“They Love Me. Won’t Be Going

Anywhere.

LITERALLY AM THE FUTURE..

Synonyms; UNTOUCHABLE”
