Otis Says He Asked Scotty 2 Hotty If He Could Perform His “Caterpillar” Move in WWE


During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Otis said he talked to Scotty 2 Hotty to get his approval to use his caterpillar move in WWE. Of course, Scotty 2 Hotty used to do “The Worm” in WWE. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

Otis on how he came up with the caterpillar: “It was at a dance party at Elementary School. No girls would dance with me so I had to get the crowd over with my moves. I started shaking my hips and getting going and I waited till everybody was watching – you know, it was a big circle dance, everybody’s looking in there and checking you out. And that’s when I dropped. Bam! It’s a little bit stiffer on the floor than in the ring. And I got love from doing that move, so I just kept doing it. So now every wedding I get sore ribs the day after.”

Otis on speaking to Scotty 2 Hotty about bringing the move to WWE: “I told (Scotty) this move means a lot to me and I know you’re the king of The Worm but I want to continue this and we’ll call it The Caterpillar.”

On his WWE character: “As we say in WWE, it’s only you turned up to 10, so everything we do, like me talking to girls and being shy is a real thing.”

On people comparing him to the late Chris Farley: “A lot of people confuse me with Chris Farley. I don’t want to say confuse but it came naturally. I didn’t try to take any of Chris Farley’s innuendos or comedy. I guess we both sound the same and we both have good looks, you know?”
