Otis may be the finest character WWE’s created in a few time. He’s being an old-school Jim Neidhart, but ten occasions as thick. They can carry out the earthworm, he’s oozing with charisma, and the man talks like he’s from Beavis and Butthead. Speculate stated before, tonight wasn’t the evening to crown him as champion.
