• Otis Reveals His Reaction When He Found Out He Was Winning The Money In The Bank Contract
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Mr. Money In The Bank 2020, Otis, made his first comments on his shocking win at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view this past Sunday.
Below are the highlights:
On finding out he was winning the match:
“I found out and was like, ‘What?’ When the briefcase got into my hands, that’s when it felt real. I remember watching the first ‘Money in the Bank’ match at WrestleMania, and it blows my mind that I woke up right next to it this morning.”
On if he has become a singles wrestler:
“I’ve heard I’m just a big man comedy wrestler. I’ll admit it, I’m always the loud one in the room. But when it’s time for business, it’s time for business. Can I be in the main event? Let’s do it. If I sink, then that’s on me. I love wrestling, and I’m going to show people that I can do it.”
On Paul Heyman telling him not to hold back during the food fight:
“Paul was all for it. I was looking around that table and said, ‘What should I toss at you?’ There was that big, massive plate with the pastas and sandwiches, and I said, ‘Sorry, sir, about your suit.’ And you can’t not throw it hard when you throw something like that, so I brought it.”
On when he first met Heyman:
“I first met Paul at a promo class at NXT, and there is something about the way he motivates. I remember when he first talked to Heavy Machinery. I was so pumped up I wanted to run through a wall. He’s that motivating.”
