New Interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion Crowned, Drake Maverick Offered New Deal

El Hijo del Fantasma has become the interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship, following a win over Drake Maverick tonight on NXT television.

Jordan Devlin was unable to defend the NXT Cruiserweight title due to the travel ban, and remains in the United Kingdom.

Following the match, Triple H came out and offered Drake Maverick a new WWE contract, specifically for the NXT brand.

Maverick was among the long list of WWE talent released this past April due to cost-cutting measures.

Drake Maverick will remain with WWE, and will be a part of the NXT division.
