Someone on creative is a fan of the book Of Mice And Men that over here was taught at high school.

That book is built around the story of a slow guy who works with his mate who looks out for him, who fancies the blonde lady who is way out of his league. It's carbon copy.

I am enjoying it so far. Instead of Mandy being caught on camera being nasty like what usually happens in storylines, this time even Sonya can't understand it.

I truly think it's a way to separate fire and desire whilst slowly turning Mandy face and teaming her up with heavy machinery basically bringing some sex appeal to the team , I really hope it doesn't end with Otis getting his heart broken for more heel heat on Mandy that would suck and be way too predictable.

It wouldn't be the first time they have put a hot blonde with a babyface pairing. For example Trish with Test and Albert and Sunny with the Godwins. It does tend to always work well.

They don't have to make Mandy want Otis as her boyfriend. But women who look like her and dress like her will get plenty of unwanted attention off creeps after one thing. So that Otis is so loveable and doesn't treat her like a sexual object will appeal to the Mandy character.

It was pretty amusing Sonya wanting him ringside after seeing him help Mandy win the previous week, but on this occasion him costing her the match.

But that sounds like perfect Vince McMahon reasoning. In Vince's view there's no conceivable way that a woman that hot would be remotely interested in a pudgy guy like Otis. So she would naturally use him to achieve whatever it is she wants and then dump him. 

Despite knowing that there's probably a predictable backstabbing turn down the road, I have to admit that this might be the only chance Heavy Machinery has to get serious TV time. After all it's not like Vince watches NXT so he's not going to realize that for big guys, they can move and have athletic matches.

I actually think Heavy Machinery are a good fit for WWE, they are kind of a modern day Natural Disasters type pairing.

I'm not a fan of this storyline with Otis and Mandy, its typical Vince booking and its lame and predictable, its almost certainly going the route of Mandy turning on Otis to try and get him sympathy.

I do think Mandy would be effective as a heel valet for somebody, I did wonder if they were teasing something with her and Dolph Ziggler.

The sad thing is this love story was done better than that of Bobby Lashley & Lana.

1 million times better - this is entertaining. The crowd have someone they generally like and want to get behind in Otis and no real antagonist.

Lashley Lana Rusev is too over dramatic, had too much involvement from others and has drawn out for too long.

Otis is amazing. Easily the best part of Smackdown at the moment. The guy is full of charisma and is extremely watchable.

Roll on Valentines Day as the segments they will do throughout the show will be genius.

He's probably going to be a clumsy bastard. I would bet on him spilling something on Mandy by accident.

This storyline is fantastic.

Not in terms of level of detail or entertainment as such but in terms of building up Otis as a top babyface.

The crowd are so behind him and really want him to succeed and yet again this week something has stopped him from getting to his peach.

I'm interested to see where they go from here

This storyline has been well executed and has done a good job in getting Otis over as the sympathetic babyface that the fans all want to see get his girl but it just never happens.

This is a good spot for Ziggler too who is perfectly cast as the womanising heel, Dolph had his best run when he had AJ Lee as his valet and Big E as his enforcer.
This should be a entertaining mid-card feud that may evolve into a tag feud of Heavy Machinery vs Roode/Ziggler.
