Fans of his work in TNA and elsewhere, and those thrilled by the most pro wrestling name since Blaster McMassive, weren’t the only people excited by the introduction of Rockstar Spud... I mean DRAKE MAVERICK... as 205 Live General Manager last night (Jan. 30).
That’s not to say the people who’ve worked with Spud... I mean DRAKE... at Impact and elsewhere don’t like his new moniker. And I think it’s safe to say they’re fans of the man we now call MAVERICK...
Oh my sweet @RockstarSpud. So very proud...but OF COURSE I’ve seen this in you all along! Best #BritishBootCamp decision. Best memories as YOUR sidekick, not the other way around. Best @WWE decision. #205Live #SDLive https://t.co/AHwFVgzPmP— Dixie Carter (@TNADixie) January 31, 2018
That Drake Maverick kid cut a promo like a rockstar.— Hurricane Helms (@ShaneHelmsCom) January 31, 2018

Drake Maverick is a ROCKSTAR!
Enjoy the coming entertainment!
No one mess with Drake Maverick. The dude gave me a triple rotation head scissors.— ウィル・オスプレイ (@WillOspreay) January 31, 2018
I’m not even joking. Congratulations @RockstarSpud
I don’t tweet much anymore but I’ll make an exception tonight. This guy has always had my back through rough or smooth and I love him like a brother. Happy Birthday @RockstarSpud. I hope this is the best present you could possibly want. You deserve it. #DrakeMaverick #205LiveGM pic.twitter.com/OTbjWQsB8d— Glen Joseph (@Glen_Joseph) January 31, 2018
We never worked with the guy, but we can’t help but be happy for someone who was willing to put over a toddler...
... and proudly wear the mantle of DRAKE
YOUNGER MAVERICK (sorry, we love the death match king-turned-referee, too)!
