The winner of the Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match of 2020 Otis who is currently the Tag Team partner of Chad Gable recently talked about the wrestlers who inspired him the most. He said that he got inspired most by professional wrestling legends Big Van Vader and Bam Bam Bigelow.
Otis started his professional wrestling career back in 2015 after having a decent time in the amateur wrestling career. In 2016 he got his big call up from the WWE. He was one of the prime Scouting results of professional wrestling Legend Gerald Brisco who scouted him in 2016 and took him to WWE as a part of the development Territory of the promotion NXT.
Otis Says Vader And Bam Bam Bigelow Inspires Him The Most
The big man had a little time in jobbing after finally teaming up with Tucker Knight and forming one of the most famous tag teams in NXT history the Heavy Machinery. The team went really strong in the NXT even though they failed to win the Tag Team Championship gold. They made their main roster debut back in 2018.
WWE had bigger plans for Dozovic and not for Tucker Knight. He won the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match in 2020. But he failed to cash it in as he lost it to the Miz. WWE understand it is too early to push him onto the main events. So they made another Tag Team of him, this time with Chad Gable and they were named as the Alpha Academy. Together they are going quite strong right now.
Otis who was the winner of the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match of 2020 recently spoke to The Kliq where he said that he got inspired most by professional wrestling legends Big Van Vader and Bam Bam Bigelow. He said;
“There’s a ton. Obviously, with Vader, I just loved how Vader would come out and I don’t want to even call it flexing – he would just show the body off and put his arms out and show the traps.
“As a kid, you’re scared of him. To do what he can do in the ring – I can’t do a moonsault, maybe someday, but to watch him to do that. You’ve gotta love Bam Bam Bigelow. That man was always at the top of his game and never saw him miss a beat.
“Terry Gordy – the fast-paced style in Japan with Stan Hansen and Bruiser Brody. So, it’s a lot of in-between there that inspires me. Just watching old Japanese tapes of those guys putting meat to meat. It’s all inspiring.”
