Money in the Bank winner, Otis, and the love of his life Mandy Rose are one of the best storylines in the WWE at the moment. The most recent segment of the lovers was shown at the end of May on Friday night Smackdown. This was one of the weirdest segments we have seen between the two. The clip of Otis and his ‘Peach’ is shown below.
We are unsure where the swimming pool segment was filmed, but we do know where WWE planned to film the Scene between Otis and Mandy. Former Raw Tag Team Champion Zack Ryder revealed that the company asked to film at his pool for the weird vignette.
Ryder was one of many stars that were released from WWE in a cost cutting exercise due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Speaking on his podcast, Ryder revealed that WWE management text messaged his Fiancee and current NXT star Chelsea Green to ask if they could use his pool for the segment. This annoyed Ryder not just because they had the audacity to ask for his help, but the fact that they went through his future wife instead of him:
“I’m sitting by the pool with Chelsea and she has a weird look on her face, checking her phone, and I’m like, ‘Babe, what’s up?’ She’s like, ‘Someone from WWE asked me if Otis and Mandy Rose and a camera crew can come here to film a pool scene for SmackDown.’ I was shaking in anger. You fired me, but you wanna use my pool? I was pissed.
They didn’t ask me, they asked her! I guess they were taping Raw and SmackDown at the Performance Center. My good friends Morrison and Miz said they were coming over and texted me and said, ‘Can I bring Otis?’ I thought it was a rib because they knew the story. That pissed me off too. But Otis showed up and it wasn’t a rib. I don’t know Otis, though I wrestled him, this guy is pure entertainment. I fell in love with this man,”
Pretty shocking behavior from WWE if you ask us. Crazy that they sacked a guy then had the nerve to ask to use his property to film a vignette. It is like breaking up with someone and asking them for their friend’s number.
