Max Dupri has been one of the most talented and gifted superstars on the SmackDown roster currently. But, his gimmick as Max Dupri and managing Maximum Male Models has not been as fruitful as it needed to be. But, it now seems that Dupri is all set for a makeover and a makeover that’ll take him back in time.

On the 30th September edition of SmackDown, Dupri turned on the Maximum Male Models and said that he was done with them. He further said he doesn’t know if it ever meant to be this way. All this clearly points towards a considerable character change. And according to sources Max Dupri would soon be reverting back to his old gimmick which is better known as The LA Knight.

Before making a transition into the character of Max Dupri, he had indefinite popularity that he earned in NXT as The L.A. Knight. Fearless and Ferocious on the mic, and top charisma in the ring as well. Before arriving in WWE, Dupri had made a name for himself on the indie circuits and fighting as Eli Drake in TNA.

When Dupri arrived on SmackDown, people were ecstatic as they knew the potential Dupri was bringing with him to the Blue Brand. However, as the owner of Maximum Male Models, he was not feeling his element and the audience was not able to get behind the faction as well.

Now, PWInsider in an exclusive report has revealed that Dupri would be continuing as LA Knight. The report also said that the Maximum Male Models will continue along with Mace and Mansoon with Dupri’s sister Maxxine Dupri managing its affairs.

Overall, LA Knight is a much better character than Max Dupri and resonates more with his personality. Moreover, the creative decision to scrap off the gimmick can also be the result of the new power dynamics of the company as it is believed to be a storyline initiated by Vince McMahon.

But, since he is not associated with the company, the new creatives would have thought that it would be wise to give Max a main character role rather than being engaged in these storylines. However, it still needs to be seen what exactly WWE has planned for Max Dupri a.k.a The L.A. Knight.
