Drake Wuertz Returning To The Ring In June

Drake Wuertz will be returning to the ring on June 26.

Wuertz, who worked in WWE as a referee, was fired by the company on May 19. Before signing with WWE, Wuertz worked as Drake Younger on the Independent scene. He hasn't wrestled since April 2014.

"Back to my 'Younger' days. Returning to in-ring action for a great cause on June 26th in O-Town," he wrote on Instagram.

Also scheduled to appear at the event are Matt Morgan and Low Ki.

Wuertz' conspiracy theories were pushed on social media, and even in county commissioner meetings while wearing an NXT polo.

Wuertz was either formally or informally suspended earlier in 2021 and was not permitted at the Performance Center for several weeks. Much of the NXT talent believed that he'd be cut after that. Over the past couple of years Wuertz went from a beloved name in wrestling to one that had grown to concern, as he had spoken about his far-right political beliefs and connected them to misinformation in relation to the pandemic, religion, and child trafficking. Fightful was told that an article about Wuertz had "disgusted" higher-ups.
