Drake Maverick On Using His Stature As An Asset: 'I Wouldn’t Be As Special If I Wasn’t Me'

Drake Maverick is not the biggest WWE Superstar, but he is out to prove that it is about the size of his heart and not the size of his stature.

The former WWE 24/7 Champion made waves in the recent tournament to crown a new WWE Cruiserweight Champion. He made it all the way to the finals before losing two Santos Escobar but in the process, he earned a new WWE contract.

Speaking with Daily Star, Drake Maverick talked about making an impact despite his stature and how, at 7 foot tall, Braun Strowman is one of his best friends and continues to prove that size doesn't matter.

“I’m a small guy, I’m 5 foot 4 inches tall, and a lot of people will say that I shouldn’t even be here right now,” said Maverick. “I’m knocking down walls every damn day. It’s tough and it’s a slog, but I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.

He continued, “I wouldn’t be as special if I wasn’t me, and this industry is about special people of different sizes. My friends are like Braun Strowman who is [7ft] big, man. That’s a special kind of human, and when you’re in airports, heads turn – heads don’t tend to turn when little James walks by. Give me a microphone or let me get in the ring, and that’s when everything changes. It’s all part of being a WWE Superstar and I wouldn’t change what I am or who I am for anything.”

Drake Maverick recently returned on the July 24 episode of WWE 205 Live. You can check out the full results at this link.
