Otis is the new sensation on the SmackDown brand, and because of his everyman appearance, he’s been getting recent comparisons to the legendary Dusty Rhodes. Speaking with Sportskeeda, Otis weighed in on these comparisons, saying there would only be one Dusty Rhodes.

“There’s only one Dusty Rhodes. I haven’t heard too much of that comparison but I guess you could say that because we’re both big, beefy guys. Good looking, thick men. It’s an honor. He’s one of the best of all time, Dusty Rhodes. And watching his stuff back too, just to see how he was working his swagger on the camera, how he translated to the fans was awesome, man,” said Otis. “I never studied Dusty too much but you’ve got to appreciate every time you watch his old matches, even the Polka Dot matches, he’s shaking, baby. He’s a legend, man, and I would hope to be close to ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes in comparison..”
