Tucker: Heavy Machinery Didn't Win The Tag Team Title In WWE Because We Got Over On Our Own

Their popularity caused them to suffer, Tucker believes

Heavy Machinery's popularity may have been to their own detriment. 

The team of Otis and Tucker were a popular duo on Friday Night SmackDown and they would regularly receive a positive response from WWE's audience. The tag team were trusted in featured spots like the Miracle on 34th Street Fight and Otis would be featured in a high profile romance angle heading into WrestleMania 36 with Mandy Rose and Dolph Ziggler.

Despite their success, Heavy Machinery would never win a tag team championship in WWE and Levi Cooper (FKA Tucker) believes this is because the team got over on their own.

"At the risk of sounding arrogant, I think maybe a part of the reason we didn't get those was that we were able to get over on our own. Hey, this big babyface team you listen to the crowd when we come out they love us, they're all about us. You don't need to put the straps on us for them. Championships for the lack of a better term television prop. It's the prize that's fought over. You need something when there's an antagonist and protagonist and they have a conflict," Cooper told The Angle Podcast.
