Drake Maverick got the much needed “W” to keep his WWE career intact by defeating Tony Nese last night on NXT in the Interim Cruiserweight Tournament. Maverick took Nese out with a modified tope rope bulldog and secured the 1-2-3 ensuring his survival in the round robin for gold. An impassioned Maverick took to the microphone to state his intent as he takes on KUSHIDA in the next round of the tournament.
“I did it! I told everybody that I was going to do it. You know, there was a little bit of me that didn’t believe myself, but I did it. And KUSHIDA, you’re all that’s next, okay? You can call me The Wolf Of Wallstreet, The Wolf Of NXT, I’m not freakin’ leavin’ yet! I’m not leavin’ because I love this, I live for this and I’m not leaving until I’m the NXT Crusierweight Champion. I did it, yes!”
