Otis and Tucker were recent guests on Table Talk w/ DVon.
During the interview, Otis shared how they came up with their tag team name. Here is what they had to say:
“I said it once, we had this thing called the Performance Center shows, and basically, it’s to test some things out, see what looks on camera,” Otis said. “So, you’re basically wrestling in front of your peers and your coaches and Kayla Braxton, she came into the post-match interview ‘What would we call you two hunk of men?’ ‘Heavy Machinery!’ I said something else, but I don’t remember how I even said, but Heavy Machinery just kind of clicked but after the meeting of Heavy Machinery, those two big guys could go and never stop coming. It was not supposed to be Heavy Machinery. Then, after four months, we were actually named Heavy Machinery.”
