During a recent appearance on The Wrestling Inc. Daily, former WWE Superstar Tucker spoke about the relationship between Otis and Mandy Rose.
Tucker that it all actually started as a joke, back when they were in NXT. Otis used to send out flirt tweets directly towards Mandy Rose, just to mess with her boyfriend at the time, Tino Sabatelli.
“He just did it on social media. He’s the man! It was just a joke to mess with Mandy’s boyfriend at the time, Tino Sabatelli. I mean, not just to mess with him, but it’s like, ‘Hey, do you think if I do this thing on social media where I just ask Mandy to be my girlfriend all the time, that would be super cringy?’ And I’m like, ‘No, dude, that’d be pretty funny, I think.’ He just started doing it and talked to her, and she was like, ‘Oh, I like it. People are into it. Keep doing it. It’s funny,’ and so anytime she posts a pic, he just takes that picture and was like, ‘Oh, Doz’s future girlfriend’ and posts it right. It just started getting over and became a WrestleMania match. Take your shot, baby.” - Tucker
