La Knight made his debut tonight on WWE Friday Night SmackDowun as Max Dupri. Dupri said that he was hired by Sonya Deville and he is bringing his stable called the Maximum Male Models.
Adam Pearce was not sure about Dupri being on the brand but Dupri assured him that he signed his contract. They are going to try to get over the way the name is said “Max Du-pree” in promos because he harped on that during the backstage segment.
Dupri had been appearing in dark segments in recent weeks and he introduced Mace and Mansoor. Prior to his debut the stable was called Knight Model Management, so the decision to change his name must have been very recent.
At this point, it’s not clear if Mace and Mansoor will be with him on SmackDown or if they will introduce new members in the coming weeks.
