Otis Discusses His Struggle With Dyslexia, Completes His First Book Front To Back

Otis has accomplished a noteworthy milestone.

In the past, Otis has noted that he has dealt with Dyslexia since he was a kid. But he has been working hard by going to reading class at WWE’s recommendation, and he recently finished his first book front to back, Pet Sematary by Stephen King.

In a post on Instagram, Otis discussed his struggles and opened up about his journey, including this aforementioned milestone. He also expressed his gratitude to his teacher, Kimmy.

Feelin’ Cool and Excited to finish my FIRST EVER Book From Front to Back


About a Year and half ago @wwe Approached me to get into Reading Class

My Family and Friends know but here on the Social I’m here to tell you guys

I’ve always had Bad Reading Dyslexia since I was in Elementary School

My pronouncing is Alright but my Comprehension has always been Juicy for me

I’m embarrassed about it at times but Really can’t do much about it besides do what we all do


When Kimberly Swedberg became My Teacher she asked me what stories I’m into

I of course said “Anything Horror”

But I mentioned one Movie that scared the Sh#t out of me as a kid and still gets me

Which is Stephen King’s PET SEMATARY

Kimmy goes “I’ll see what I can do”

I’ve been hearin’ for years from many how much Better the books are than the movies —

Didn’t believe it til now

The 2 characters that scared me in the story was Timmy Baterman and Zelda

After reading this book, they seemed 10 times more evil and scary


The Story itself had like 5 things that go into great detail that the Awesome Movie Didin’t have that made you love and invest in the Characters even more

To me this Story was always so damn terrifying, depressing, and emotional

Pulls at your Heart strings and makes you go WHAT THE HELL


THANK YOU “KIMMY” Kim Swedberg for being the Best instructor and teacher

Especially your patience with me hahahaha

Onto the Next One…..
