• Backstage News On Which SmackDown Wrestler Is Vince McMahon’s Project
WWE SmackDown wrestler Otis got a surprising push this year. He got involved in a romantic angle with Mandy Rose.
After defeating Dolph Ziggler at WrestleMania, Otis became Mr. Money In The Bank in May.
Fightful is reporting that Otis is a project of Vince McMahon, and he’s being pushed as per the wish of the WWE CEO.
“Vince McMahon is the one behind Otis’ current push in the WWE, which resulted in a pairing with Mandy Rose and the Money in the Bank briefcase.
Otis is said to be a favorite of McMahon’s and a ‘total Vince McMahon project’. Both members of Heavy Machinery are also said to have made ‘positive impressions’ backstage, which may have helped.”
