Otis Inspired By Intensity Seen In Sting vs. Vader Battle

The Watch List looks at what matches you should be watching, and they are recommended by today’s professional wrestling stars.

WrestleZone recently spoke with Otis, who was asked for some highlight material that he might use to motivate himself or adapt in the ring.

“Off the top of my head, baby, you’ve got Stinger and Vader, Great American Bash ’92. Those guys went at it, baby. 35-something minutes or so,” Otis explained. “I would definitely sit down with somebody and watch that match to see the intensity, how simple they were. And also, man, those guys back then like Big Japan Vader and Stinger was red-hot with that mullet, rat tail. So at the top of my head, I’d pull that match out for sure.”
