He opened the post, saying, “There’s winning championships, and then there’s achieving dreams alongside your best friend… The Alpha Academy relationship is much more than a tag team. It’s been a brotherhood for 10+ years.”

They have known each other since 2011, when both were training for the Olympics in Colorado Springs. The current tag team champion, Gable, was also an amateur wrestler who competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics held in London. Simultaneously, Otis also trained in amateur wrestling.
