In a captivating turn of events, former WWE Superstars Mansoor and Mace made a striking appearance at a recent DPW wrestling event, where they boldly addressed the enthusiastic crowd, marking a significant shift in their professional wrestling careers.
The duo, previously known for their involvement in the Maximum Male Models faction alongside LA Knight (formerly Max Dupri) and Maxxine Dupri, have navigated a transformative journey since they departed from WWE. The faction's dissolution followed Triple H's ascension as the head of WWE creative, leading to divergent paths for its members.
Re reverting to his NXT persona, LA Knight emerged as a prominent singles competitor, while Maxxine found a new home with The Alpha Academy. In contrast, Mansoor and Mace experienced a decrease in television presence under their former bosses, culminating in their release from the company on September 21, 2023.
MxM: New Beginnings
At the DPW event, Mace, who has reinvented himself as Mason Madden, and Mansoor, announced their new tag team, 'MxM' This move signifies their fresh start in the wrestling world. "We're here to make a statement.
From the moment we stepped through that curtain, the meta has changed," declared Mace. He emphasized the significance of their rebranding, introducing themselves authentically to the fans. Reflecting on their diverse career trajectories, Mansoor expressed pride in their current identity: "We are MxM, and from now until the wheels fall off, we are here in DPW."
While Mansoor and Mace embark on this new chapter, their former Maximum Male Models colleagues continue to make waves in WWE.
LA Knight, after reverting to his NXT character, recently challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel, demonstrating his elevated status. On the other hand, Maxxine Dupri, now a member of Alpha Academy, is resonating with fans.
Her recent match against Rhea Ripley on WWE RAW, though resulting in a loss, showcases her burgeoning presence in the women's division. In a noteworthy shift, LA Knight and Maxxine Dupri are no longer portrayed as siblings in WWE storylines, and they find themselves thriving on separate brands.
This development underscores the dynamic nature of the wrestling industry, where change is constant, and reinvention is a pathway to success. This latest development in these wrestlers' careers illustrates the ever-evolving landscape of professional wrestling, where fortunes can shift, and new alliances and identities are forged in the quest for glory and fan adulation.
