Heavy Machinery (Tucker & Otis) were split in the 2020 WWE Draft with Tucker going to Raw and Otis remaining on SmackDown.
At WWE Hell in a Cell, the split was solidified when Tucker turned on Otis, costing him his Money in the Bank briefcase.
Speaking on OTR Show, Tucker discussed the split and how he was confused by the whole thing.
"I wish I would have said no to hitting him in the head with the briefcase. I didn't ask the right questions as to what we'd be doing moving forward. The way that it happened, happened. I wasn't initially booked and then I got called to come to the stadium fairly late and found out about it fairly late. I feel like it happened intentionally so I wouldn't put my foot down or ask the right questions. That's on me. I ultimately said yes and did it. What came about from it, came about from it. I'm not trying to put that on anyone else. I'm disappointed and I think the communication could have been better. That's often the case with them. I wish they would have at least....if you're going to release me anyway, just have him kick my ass in two minutes and let me go. I don't understand why there was no match. It's the same thing with him and Mandy. It's one of the top three or top five storylines of fan investment for the year and you're just going to put them on separate brands and everyone is okay with the fact that Otis is like, 'Eh, I guess Mandy doesn't exist anymore.' No, who is going to forget about Mandy Rose? Now, he's a heel anyway. He could have just turned on her," he said.
Otis and Mandy was the great love story of 2019 and 2020, but Rose was moved to Raw ahead of the 2020 Draft and there was no follow-up on the relationship between the two.
Tucker was released from his WWE contract in April. Otis, who turned heel in February, is currently aligned with Chad Gable on SmackDown.
