WWE Superstar Otis recently spoke with Digital Spy about what his plans are if he wins Money in the Bank this Sunday. Otis also shared a story from his childhood, according to Otis, while at a WWE show he was speared by security.
Otis was a 200 pound fifth grader at the time and was running to barrier to go see and possibly give Trish Stratus a high-five when a security guard tackled him to the ground, not realizing he was just a kid.
Otis on on getting speared by WWE security:
“It hurt, every bit of it hurt. I was a 200-pound fifth grader – I looked like a man almost.”
Otis on what happened afterwards:
“So yeah I made a sacrifice, got speared, but after that spear from the guard we got first row tickets. So it all happened for a reason.”
Otis on if he has told Trish Stratus the story:
“I’ve never told Trish that story in person. It’s hard for me to talk to her as a lady I’ve watched for years in the Sports Entertainment world. It would be a good way for me to express… you know, without really talking to her in person.”
Otis on what he plans to do if he wins Money in the Bank:
“If I get the briefcase, we’re challenging for the Tag Team titles. I don’t think there’s a rule of what titles to challenge for, so we’re going to challenge for the Tag Team titles, cash it in and that’s what’s going to happen… if I can get up that ladder. I’m a little scared of heights. And I hope that ladder’s going to be sturdy enough to carry my weight.”
