WWE legend John Cena praises ‘gifted’ Drake Maverick as star dropped along with several others in brutal cuts

WWE legend John Cena sang Drake Maverick's praises following his release from Vince McMahon's company.

Maverick was the latest star to be let go from the professional wrestling giants following the most recent round of brutal cuts that also saw the likes of Hit Row, John Morrison and Tegan Nox departing.

The British grappler was also part of the first round of cut-backs a year ago and issued a tearful message to the fans on social media that won the hearts of the WWE Universe and thus the company immediately rehired him.

This time, however, he decided to go down a different path as he directed a short film of him dreaming a conversation with himself convincing him he is a success until he wakes up and hears his phone buzzing, which teases a call from another promotion.

Wrestling legend Cena, who is currently enjoying success in Hollywood, watched the clip and issued a message of support for the 'gifted' 38-year-old.

The 16-time world champion posted: "This is worth a watch. Very well done and very powerful message by a gifted performer."

The Champ wasn't the only wrestling star to address Maverick's initiative as more joined the comments section.

Fellow British great Stu Bennett, also known as Wade Barrett, said: "You’re a success & you’ll continue to be a success, mate. (Hell of a directorial debut too)."

AEW superstar Matt Hardy addressed Maverick in his former TNA gimmick as Rockstar Spud: "OUTSTANDING, Spud!"

And Jessica McKay, formerly known as Billie Kay, tweeted: "Wow."

Maverick joined WWE in 2017 following a successful five-year stint at Impact Wrestling.

During his time with the wrestling giants, the Birmingham favourite undertook various roles as manager of The Authors of Pain, 205 Live General Manager and 24/7 Champion.

The cruiserweight spent the last year with the promotion on the NXT brand.
