Mandy Rose and Otis have been the center of one of the best WWE stories of the year. The story culminated at WrestleMania when Otis defeated Dolph Ziggler and finally got together with Mandy.
Now, it has been revealed that their backstage segment was not scripted. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Mandy discussed how that segment came to be. Here is the quote:
“That was just us, off-script, being ourselves. I was shocked it got so many views. We’re really thankful that people are enjoying this.”
Mandy also mentioned how she pitched the idea of working with Otis and what it was like talking to Vince McMahon about it.
“It’s hard to get in Vince’s office, but I finally got in and I pitched this story. He loved it, he had some ideas, and then Sonya and I had a lot of say in the creative, which was really cool. We were able to write a lot of it. We all worked together, and that’s one of the reasons it’s worked so well. Everyone’s been really passionate about it.”
The storyline has continued beyond WrestleMania with Sonya Deville turning on Mandy and Dolph professing he still feels for her.
