WWE Sends Cease and Desist Letter To The Revival, Otis Talks Meeting Scotty 2 Hotty

The tag team formerly known as The Revival in WWE recently confirmed rumors that, before they left the company, there were plans to make them into a comedy duo.

Not only were the Revival to be relaunched as a comedy duo, but there were a series of new costume ideas for the duo, and photos of the artwork rendering these costumes were released online.

Dax Harwood had previously confirmed that these costumes and the artwork were legit and poked fun about them in a tweet which showed a new shirt for sale that had the image on it.

However, the said shirt is no longer on the duo’s Pro Wrestling Tee store, reportedly because WWE put a stop to it.

According to BodySlam.Net, WWE has sent out a cease and desist letter for the use of the image that is featured in the shirt. WWE is claiming that they own the rights to the image.

In response, the shirt was pulled from the store about two weeks ago.

Mr. Money In The Bank, Otis, has been using a move known as the Caterpillar since his NXT days. Many people see it as a homage to the Worm, which was the finisher of former WWE Superstar Scotty 2 Hotty.

Otis was a guest on Lillian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast where he admits that the Caterpillar is indeed an homage to the Worm as he was a fan of Scotty.

Scotty is a backstage producer and a trainer with NXT, and Otis mentioned that he had helped both him and his tag team partner Tucker. But he had actually met Scotty earlier before he was with the WWE.

“I met Scotty – he was doing a show in Proctor [Minnesota] and he thought that I was working him,” said Otis

“We were just a bunch of fans sneaking in backstage. I snuck in and I was like, ‘Hey Scotty, I just want you to know, I just won the 2009 National Championships in Fargo, North Dakota, and I did The Worm after I pinned the guy,” recalled Otis.
