Despite being released from WWE earlier this month, Drake Maverick refuses to give up just yet. During another Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament Match, Maverick took down Tony Nese to notch his first win the tournament.

The win means that Maverick will fight for at least another week, and following the match, he was very excited by the thought. Dubbing himself the “Wolf of Wallstreet” of NXT, Maverick said that he wasn’t going anywhere, and wouldn’t leave until he was crowned as the next NXT Cruiserweight Champion.
