Report: Max Dupri done with WWE's Maximum Male Models faction

The former LA Knight reportedly rubbed some people the wrong way.

Max Dupri is reportedly out as the mouthpiece for Maximum Male Models on SmackDown. 

According to a report from PW Torch, the former LA Knight "rubbed some people the wrong way and wasn’t fitting in." Vince McMahon made the decision weeks ago to remove him as the leader and mouthpiece of the group. Max Dupri will be replaced by his storyline sister, Maxxine Dupri, in the role. 

Max Dupri announced in a promo on the July 15 episode of SmackDown that his sister would appear on this week's show. He is said to have known at the time that it would be his final performance under the gimmick. 

Sofia Cromwell (Sydney Zmrzel) was revealed as Maxxine Dupri in a segment on the July 22 edition of SmackDown. The former LA Rams and Phoenix Suns cheerleader was signed to WWE earlier this year. She had been appearing with Mr. Stone and Von Wagner on NXT in recent weeks.
