#4 Did Otis reuse the mask and cape of an old WWE character?
WWE found a way to get Otis on RAW this week, and the company did so by debuting the new El Gran Gordo character. The SmackDown Superstar put on a mask and cape and teamed up with Tucker in a match against The Miz and Morrison.
El Gran Gordo was easily the most comical aspect of the entire RAW episode, and it seems like Otis' new luchador avatar is here to stay for a few more weeks.
Several fans have now observed that the mask and cape used by Otis on RAW might have been recycled from an older character that appeared on WWE TV in 2016 and 2017.
Does La Luchadora ring a name? A mysterious female Superstar began appearing under a mask between December 2016 and January 2017.
While Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, and Deonna Purrazzo also donned the mask, the character was booked to eventually reveal the returning Mickie James. Following the revelation, the La Luchadora gimmick was not seen on WWE TV.
The similarities between the mask and cape of La Luchadora and El Gran Gordo are all there to be seen. While Otis' trunks were a separate addition, the rest of his attire seemed to have been picked up from La Luchadora.
