Drake Maverick has opened up about having to legitimately wet himself during a match at Survivor Series 2018.
Speaking to D'Von Dudley on his Table Talk podcast, Drake Maverick spoke about the spot from the Survivor Series pay-per-view event in 2018.
Maverick was instructed to use a device to make it look like he'd wet himself during a spot with Big Show during the match, however, the device wasn't working.
“Usually you go over to Vince [McMahon] and Hunter and you give ‘em a handshake and thank them for allowing you to do business and everything like that.” “But, on that day, I was excused from the handshake as it was covered with [pee]. It’s a story for the ages. I’ll be looked back on as the guy that peed himself and some people will call it pathetic. Me, I saw that as an opportunity to show my boss I will do absolutely anything to get the job done, so, there you go.”
Maverick would go on to talk about how the spot was perfect for his character at the time, being the manager for the Authors of Pain:
“I know this isn’t James actually peeing his pants. This is Drake Maverick peeing his pants, and so when that’s presented to you, some people will be like, ‘Oh God, that’s gonna make you look so pathetic.’ ‘I know, it’s perfect, right? I’m a beggar.” “How much more pathetic can you be surrounded by two enormous men to do your fighting for you then peeing your pants at the first sight of danger?’ It’s pathetic. So why would anybody cheer me? They boo me and they react. I remember with AOP [Akam & Rezar], and we go to the live events and they come out and they’re awesome, and they’re monsters, and they’re killers, and they get in there and they’ll be monsters and they kill everybody. But the audience knows they’re pre-conditioned to boo them, but what’s [the reason] to boo them? Because they’re awesome. So then after I peed my pants, we go out there and they’re chanting, ‘A-O-Pee-Pee’ and I’m looking around, ‘No! No!’ But there’s reaction there, which is also important for our business is getting them to care enough to even open their mouths and say something.”
