Heavy Machinery has found a new home on Smackdown Live.
In a bizarre move, WWE.com is now listing Otis and Tucker as part of the group making a mass exodus to the blue brand, all thanks to the 2019 Superstar Shake-Up.
The group’s fate wasn’t exactly certain coming out of Tuesday night’s show, since they were never actually mentioned on the broadcast and when the original list of draftees was released, the former NXT Superstars were nowhere to be seen.
WWE first advertised the arrival of Heavy Machinery from the NXT brand way back in December, along with EC3, Lacey Evans, Lars Sullivan, Nikki Cross, Aleister Black and Ricochet. They have all been listed as “free agents” for the last few months, making frequent appearances on both brands in anticipation of the Superstar Shake-Up.
Otis and Tucker will join Lars Sullivan on the blue brand, while EC3, Evans, Black and Ricochet will be heading to Monday Night Raw. For whatever reason, Nikki Cross’ status was never actually confirmed, and she is not currently listed on the roster pages for either show.
