EC3 Managed by Drake Maverick in SmackDown Dark Match

In a dark match before tonight’s SmackDown, EC3 was accompanied to the ring by Drake Maverick.

EC3 wrestled against Luke Harper in a match that Harper won.

Maverick has been off of Raw since January, when Akam of the Authors of Pain underwent knee surgery. At the time, Akam was only supposed to be out for about two months, so the Authors of Pain could be back soon.

EC3 was involved with Maverick in TNA in various angles, both as rivals and allies.
