5Otis Joined Miz TV
Otis joined Miz and Morrison for an episode of Miz TV. John joked that Otis was pregnant and maybe he should relinquish the briefcase like Becky Lynch relinquished the RAW Women’s Championship.
They showed several pictures of Otis’ youth and Otis thanked his mother for helping him because he had a learning disability. The Miz got pissed off and called Otis a buffoon. Miz added that he cannot believe he won the briefcase without even climbing the ladder and that he doesn’t deserve Mandy Rose.
The Miz demanded that Tucker team up with him tonight for a tag team match. Otis claimed that Tucker wasn’t here tonight and Miz suggested that he find another partner by the end of the show.
