Drake Maverick has spoken about the incident at Survivor Series 2018 where, due to technical issues, he had to urinate himself live on pay-per-view in front of a packed crowd.
At Survivor Series 2018, Maverick was by the side of his charges at the time, the mighty Authors Of Pain. AOP were the RAW Tag Team Champions at the time and were facing their SmackDown counterparts The Bar. The Bar at this time were aligned with The Big Show and things went wrong for Maverick when the giant star got hold of him.
Speaking on Table Talk, the six-time 24/7 Champion recalled the spot calling for him to use a contraption to make it look like he had wet himself. When the device broke, however, Drake Maverick had no choice but to wet his pants for real:
“I had to shoot wet myself because the contraption broke. That’s as far as I’ll go to, one, get the job done and two, for the sake of entertainment. My boss asks me, ‘I want you to urinate yourself tonight, here’s how we’re going to do it.’ I remember Arn Anderson was my producer and he was like, ‘What if this contraption doesn’t work?’ I’m like, ‘Arn if it doesn’t work, I got this.’ He’s like, ‘If it doesn’t work, it’s going to look terrible.’ I’m guzzling water. Big Show grabs me. I [flaps his arm] and nothing is happening. I’m like [frozen]. A lot of people, from things I’ve read, assume that I’m pressing a button. There’s no button.”
“I intentionally went out in gray trousers and didn’t wear underwear just in case. Obviously, with any material, you don’t know how thick it is and if water will show up. I’m closing my eyes and just concentrating on getting out as much tinkle as I can, but I’m also trying to make sure that the stream is going to touch the clothing. Where I’m peeing, I’m forcing the material onto myself so it will come through. It was just a trickle, but you could see it and everyone got the gist.”
Maverick continued, noting that backstage producer Road Dogg took particular delight in his situation:
“I come backstage and Road Dogg is like, ‘Can I talk to you? There something wrong with the contraption? It looked like it sucked.’ ‘Yes there is something wrong, it didn’t work and I had to wet myself.’ “Wait, did you shoot p*ss yourself?’ ‘YES!’ ‘AH HA! HUNTER! HE SHOOT P*SSED HIMSELF! VINCE!’ ‘WHAT?’ ‘HE SHOOT P*SSED HIMSELF!’ ‘WHAT? HA!’ Usually, you go over to Vince and Hunter and you give them a handshake and thank them for allowing you to do business and things like that, but on that day, I was excused from the handshake because it was covered.”
Drake Maverick returned to Raw on September 6th and immediately set his sights on regaining the 24/7 Championship, currently held by Carmella’s one-time sommelier, Reggie.
