• Drake Maverick Posts An Update After Worrisome Early Morning Tweet
As we noted earlier, it looked like something happened to NXT wrestler Drake Maverick, as his wife, Renee Michelle, took to his Twitter account to note that Maverick is being checked by the doctors and is in safe hands.
You can check out what she wrote below:
“It’s Renee. Drake (James) is in safe hands being checked over thoroughly by doctors soon. Thanks to all that.”
The tweet was later deleted, but below is a screenshot:
Maverick then provided an update and noted that he was hacked:
“I’ve just woke up to a lot of people worried. Have no fear I think somebody was just playing silly buggers with my Twitter. All is well ??”
