WWE Tag Team Adds New Member On Raw

There has apparently been a big shift in direction in a long-running WWE storyline on Raw with one tag team seemingly welcoming a new member.

Otis and Chad Gable have found success as the Alpha Academy in WWE, capturing the Raw Tag Team Championship back in early 2022. However, in more recent times, the team has been put under stress due to the advances of Maxxine Dupri.

Maxxine Dupri is the leader of the Maximum Male Models team of Mace and Mansoor and for months has pursued Otis to join her group, much to the displeasure of Chad Gable. However, on Raw in Albany, New York, something very unexpected happened.

WWE Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn had been in the ring reflecting on their huge win at Night of Champions but they were soon interrupted by Imperium. That in turn brought out Alpha Academy and it appears that rather than Otis abandoning his partner to join Maxxine Dupri, Dupri has instead officially joined the Academy.

Dupri tried to help her new partners Gable and Otis as they took on Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci but she was eventually run off by The Viking Raiders’ Valhalla. In the end, Imperium picked up the win, meaning the Academy trio got off to a losing start. What this move means for the future of Mace and Mansoor as the Maximum Male Models remains to be seen.
