Don’t worry, Heavy Machinery is still a team

New, comments

While Otis has been tied up in a storyline with Mandy Rose, leading to a match against Dolph Ziggler at WrestleMania 36, his tag team partner in Heavy Machinery, Tucker, has taken a back seat. Then, Otis qualified for the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match. Considering that, it’s fair to wonder if the two are still tag team partners.

Otis told CBS Sports that they are indeed:

“We’re going as strong as ever, baby, oh yeah. He’s always going to be my big brother and be my protector. The character of Otis is really like a loose cannon, I need someone to control me because my emotions get so high even I can’t control them as a human being. ...

“Heavy Machinery is full tilt. Just because there’s a little bit of absence here and there, I’m sure everyone is stirring up conversation and putting their opinions out there. But that’s a part of it. That’s a part of the mystique of what’s going on right now in WWE. I talk to my brother every day; I call him every night.”

I confess to being a big fan of Otis and think he would work just fine as a singles star but Tucker deserves a lot of credit as a strong supporting character. The SmackDown tag team division is in good enough shape they can take a break while Otis enjoys a run with his peach.
