The story between the Maximum Male Models and Alpha Academy has been taking place on Monday Night Raw in recent months.
Maxxine Dupri has taken interest in Otis, wanting him to join up with the group, while Chad Gable fights to keep ahold of his number one guy.
Speaking on WWE’s Die Woche, Maxxine spoke about working with Otis, or as she calls him ‘ot.ise’, saying that he will get to the top of Raw under her guidance.
“Working with Otise is amazing. He has the it factor and that’s what I keep talking about. You can see it. It exudes out of him. I think he’s so talented. He has so many star qualities and I just think that with our continued partnership, he’s going straight to the top, especially with this new championship on ‘Raw.'”
There was some miscommunication between the two on this week’s Raw, with Chad Gable calling for Otis to hit the Caterpillar, while Maxxine instructed him not to.
This resulted in Mustafa Ali picking up the win over Otis on the show, but Maxxine isn’t too worried, believing that Raw simply wasn’t the time for him to use the move.
“I feel like there’s a time and a place for that extra stardom. We know that he has [the Caterpillar]. In that moment, he needed to squash [his opponent] and get that win. There’s going to be a different time where he gets to show off his gorgeous body and beautiful talents. And I’m just saying, if he had immediately listened to me, that match would have ended differently.”
Despite not appearing on TV in recent weeks, ma.ce and man.soor of the Maximum Male Models have a ‘positive reaction’ backstage.

Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins def. Damian Priest, Shinsuke Nakamura in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament
