Durpi introduced the audience to Ma.çé and Mån.sôör (formerly Mace and Mansoor) in the model-focused segment last week.
The segment featuring the new group was totally whacky and over-the-top, but to WWE’s credit, went over really well with fans online.
As of right now, the plans WWE has for the group are unclear. Fans have been left to guess how WWE is going to use the trio moving forwards.
The theory amongst fans is that Dupri is going to be the manager of the group, with Ma.çé and Mån.sôör being the wrestlers, potentially even as a tag team.
That isn’t clear right now though, and WWE has given us absolutely indication as to what they’ve got in store for the trio on SmackDown.
One thing is certain though, and that’s that WWE fans are hoping that Max Dupri is used in more than just a non-wrestlers role.
Durpi is actually the most experienced wrestler of the group, having worked for TNA/IMPACT Wrestling for several years before moving to WWE.
He may be slightly older, which isn’t exactly what Vince McMahon is after, but his physique means the WWE Chairman will surely be interested in him.
Speaking of that physique, a new topless photo has emerged of Durpi online, and to his credit, he looks out-of-this-world.

Durpi is ripped beyond belief, as you can see above, and it’s got people thinking about how valuable he could be to WWE.
As a fantastic promo guy, it’s understandable why WWE would think that Dupri would be a great manager, but his unreal physique means that he should at least be considered for an in-ring role too.
The reaction from fans to the topless photo of Durpi online suggests that many of those watching WWE TV, in particular SmackDown, also want to see the former LA Knight in a featured wrestling role.
LOOKS LIKE A FUTURE WWE CHAMP— Terry Williams (@YOUNGBLACK_MAN) July 5, 2022
He’s been slept on for reasons I don’t understand. I felt he should have been NXT champ and Bron should have chased him for a 5-6 month period. Would have done wonders imo— DJ (@DJMggot1) July 5, 2022

And yet, they are wasting time and talent on that whole modeling thing.— JayNoSnax (@JayNoSnax) July 6, 2022
It’s worth stating that Dupri could be a wrestler on SmackDown as part of this new character rebrand and fresh, and it’s just fan speculation that’s suggesting he’s going to be used exclusively as a manager.
