Former WWE Superstar and member of Heavy Machinery Tucker recently spoke to The OTR Show. The former tag partner of Otis discussed a number of topics during his time on the show, including how Vince McMahon reportedly views tag team wrestling.
‘I don’t think so, no,’ Tucker said, discussing whether or not Vince McMahon believes that tag team wrestling can draw in the modern era of pro wrestling. ‘Just based on my thought, to me I feel like Vince doesn’t feel like the tag division can really draw money.”
“At least that seems to be the way that they’re booked” Tucker continued. “Even when they have a super emotional story, they might get twenty minutes at the most.”
“They’re never getting forty minutes, they’re never going on last” Tucker added, lamenting how Vince McMahon supposedly sees the tag division as lesser.
Does Vince McMahon like tag team wrestling?
“And the Money in the Bank is like one of the biggest things in the company, it’s one of the biggest prop gimmicks that there is. It’s a ticket to a world title, there’s very few people that have unsuccessfully cash it. It’s like the thing they used to catapult someone, essentially” Tucker added.
Tucker finished by talking about Otis winning the Money In The Bank briefcase, saying that the company could’ve used it to make Heavy Machinery be the first ever team to cash in and try to win a belt.
“It would be nice to think they’d use it for us to win the tag team championships” Tucker stated, “but I don’t think it was the plan. And if it was, it never got there.’
