Matt Cardona revealed on his Major Wrestling Figure Podcast that WWE wanted to tape the Otis and Mandy segment that aired on the May 29th edition of SmackDown from his house, specifically his pool. The company that had only just recently released the former Zack Ryder didn’t even ask him directly. Instead, they went to his fiancée Chelsea Green who wrestles for them on NXT.
Cardona would say:
I was pissed. They didn’t ask me, they asked her.Matt Cardona
Thankfully for fans of the Otis and Mandy angle, in the end, WWE did find an alternative location for their poolside date, and if you didn’t watch it at the time, you can view it below.
