The storyline angle between Mandy Rose and Otis continued on Friday Night SmackDown, this week. Sonya Deville competed in a match to come up short against Alexa Bliss where Mandy Rose was saved by Otis before taking a bump outside the ring. Both were seen doing happy pose after the incident occurred hinting they would love to romance each other.
The photo of Otis catching Mandy Rose went viral on social media as the latter one commented saying that she might be falling in love with Otis.
The Heavy Machinery member mentioned Rose as his ‘beautiful peach’ to showcase her affection towards WWE’s Golden Goddess. This is an indication that the angle will continue in weeks to follow on SmackDown.

While giving an interview with Kyla Braxton, Otis mentioned how the moment was very special to him.
“It felt so nice and warm and I caught her to save her. That was a big fall right there and she landed right on the oversized load.”
He added how his heart is ‘filled with emotion and its ready to explode’. While he is enjoying a hell of a time on SmackDown, this kind of altercation may not be liked by WWE commentator Corey Graves who always seems biased while opining on Mandy Rose. However, it’s a kayfabe storyline since Corey is dating Carmella in real life.
Corey dropped an emoji comment on the recent tweet made by Mandy Rose as her connection with Otis is not his favorite which led Carmella into the angle. She wishes that Mandy could have just considered Corey in her dating life just to stop him from a heartbreak situation.
It’s a light-hearted joke from the Princess of Staten Island who does know the boundary between real-life and storyline angles. However, it’ll still be interesting to see Carmella and Mandy Rose going at each other keeping Corey in the middle in a storyline.
Meanwhile, the romantic angle between Otis and Mandy Rose must have been created a wedge between Rose and Sonya Deville. The tag team named Fire n Desire has not been able to achieve big in the women’s division despite having the potential. So, WWE might just intend to give a solo push towards Mandy Rose and Otis since Vince McMahon is high on both of them.
