• King Corbin’s New Manager Possibly Revealed
According to the Wrestling Observer, former WWE 24/7 Champion Drake Maverick could be King Corbin’s new manager.
Dave Meltzer noted that Maverick recently managed Corbin at a recent WWE Live Event and how he could’ve also been the one who grabbed Roman’s leg from underneath the ring during the dog-food segment on SmackDown.
Below is what Meltzer said:
“On Thursday night in Green Bay, Drake Maverick managed Baron Corbin which surprised me. I know that Drake Maverick managing Baron Corbin has been the plan, but I figured they’d shoot it on TV first.
If you remember not on this Friday, but the last Friday’s show when the Roman Reigns beat-down there was a guy from under the ring that grabbed his leg and that kinda helped tie him up in the corner when they put dog food on him.
I presume that was Drake Maverick — I don’t know, but I do know that they were already advertising Drake Maverick in January shows. You know, it’s Baron Corbin and Drake Maverick.”
