Tucker On Reason Behind Heavy Machinery Break-Up: "Who F--king Knows?"

The team disbanded in October

If you're among the many who are wondering why WWE split up Heavy Machinery six months ago, you won't get an explanation out of Tucker - he doesn't know, either.

Levi Cooper, the man behind the role of Tucker, was one of many names released from WWE on Thursday.

Earlier on Friday, a fan on Twitter inquired to Tucker as to why WWE split up he and Otis last year.

Rather succinctly, Tucker responded, "Who f--king knows?"

Otis and Tucker were both gifted amateur wrestlers prior to meeting up in WWE developmental in 2016. Later that year, they officially formed the duo of Heavy Machinery. As part of the duo's act, Tucker generally played the sensible and knowing "straight man" to Otis' frenetic and offbeat antics.

The two men debuted on Monday Night Raw in January 2019, but were moved to SmackDown later that year as part of the Superstar Shake-Up.

As part of the 2020 Draft, Otis and Tucker were separated, as Tucker was moved to Raw. Two weeks later, Tucker turned heel, costing Otis his Money in the Bank briefcase to The Miz at Hell in a Cell. Outside of a backstage brawl, the feud was never really followed up on.

Prior to wrestling his last match for the company in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal prior to WrestleMania 37, Tucker had been inactive since November.
