During the past year of the global pandemic, one of the storylines that most caught the attention of WWE Universe fans was the one involving Otis, former tag team partner Tucker and the beautiful Mandy Rose. In a very long storyline that led Otis to become Mandy's real on-screen fiancée, there should have been a project that WWE has never put on stage, always because ideas are constantly changed backstage.
overnight, thus leading this project to be trashed before seeing the light of the sun. After Otis's resounding Money in the Bank victory, WWE also decided to split the two of the Heavy Machinery, only to then even release Tucker, in one of the now many waves of layoffs of this 2021.
In his latest interview, however, Tucker wanted to reveal something that fans still didn't know, namely that there was a stable project between Heavy Machinery and Mandy Rose, which however was no longer staged at the end.
