• Vince McMahon Absolutely Loves New WWE Main Roster Wrestler
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon absolutely loves Otis Dozovic of Heavy Machinery. Vince was impressed after seeing Otis’ comedy and it should be noted that the comedy element is very vital to WWE officials, as it’s needed for a well-rounded programming and to keep the advertisers happy.
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, Heavy Machinery made their RAW in-ring debut and went on to defeat The Ascension.
Speaking of tag teams, WWE officials are planning to promote the RAW Tag Team Division. This is the reason why Heavy Machinery made their in-ring debut on RAW and Zack Ryder / Curt Hawkins reunited (they are former WWE Tag Team Champions).
This comes after The Revival asked for their release when they felt disrespected by WWE airing a cut-away backstage segment during their match (where wrestlers were outside Vince McMahon’s office) on RAW last week, according to ProWrestlingSheet.
They also weren’t happy with how WWE treats their Tag Team division. They were frustrated by the lack of promos and backstage segment for them, WWE underutilizing top tag teams like AOP and Luke Gallows/Karl Anderson and the RAW Tag Team Champions Bobby Roode & Chad Gable not even appearing on RAW last week.
With AEW’s launch, WWE doesn’t want any talent to leave and it looks like they’re going to keep them happy.
