WWE surprised fans as they turned Shotzi Blackheart heel. She beat down Sasha Banks and that appears to be her first singles feud in WWE. That change will also come with nixing a fan favorite aspect of Shotzi’s character.

Shotzi showed up this week on SmackDown as a heel with a “Daddy” choker collar around her neck. She was also very angry as the happy-go-lucky Blackheart is no more.
After saying that her target is now on Sasha Banks, Shotzi Blackheart made something else very clear about her character. She doesn’t need a tank anymore. It appears that Shotzi’s tank is no longer touring with WWE.
This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Not only does the company not have to haul around that tank anymore, but that gimmick wouldn’t have done Shotzi any favors if she’s trying to get heat from fans. Now fans can be super angry at Shotzi Blackheart as she makes her way to the ring without her trusty tank.
This is a big change, but it won’t take down all the merchandise for her tank that WWE is still selling on their official shop. Those “Eat My Tank” t-shirts are still popular sellers, but the tank is no more.
