Drake Maverick Releases Limited-Edition Shirt Supporting The National Alliance Of Mental Illness
Maverick was released by WWE earlier this month
The former Drake Maverick has released a new t-shirt design with all proceeds going to the National Alliance on Mental Illness
Rockstar Spud, known as Maverick in WWE, was released by the promotion during the most recent round of 'budget-related cuts' to their talent roster on 18 November 2021. The former 24/7 Champion put out a video on social media not long after his departure, during which he talked to a despondent version of himself and told him to keep fighting for his dream of being a professional wrestler.
Spud has now released a special-edition t-shirt, with the phrase 'Get Up', which will only be available until the end of the year, with all earnings from its sale going to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
In a statement, he said: "The video uploaded on 11/18/2021 connected with a lot of people in more ways than just what it represented in the world of pro wrestling & with that in mind I thought together we could connect with people a little bit more.
"Today I have re-opened my Pro Wrestling Tees store. You will see I have uploaded a new design titled “*GET UP*”. All the proceeds from purchases of this special “*GET UP*” shirt sold until the end of 2021 will be donated in full to the *National Alliance on Mental Illness*.
"The holidays are a wonderful time, but they are a tough time for many on a much deeper level & our help can go a long way into keeping people on the right track from a mental health perspective. We are all in this together. Let’s remind people they are not alone."
