Champion de la WWE par Equipe
After winning notoriety in the world of reality TV (on VH1’s “I Love New York 2”) and in American tabloids (as the fiancé of Grammy and Academy Award-winning actress, Jennifer Hudson), David Otunga began making headlines of his own on WWE NXT’s inaugural season.
As anyone confronted with Otunga's impressive physique can testify, the competitor has more than his fair share of brawn and good looks. But he backs up these natural gifts with intelligence, all powered by a blue chip Harvard Law School education.
Although he failed to win WWE NXT, Otunga made a powerful opening statement on Raw, where he joined winner Wade Barrett and his fellow season one Rookies to form The Nexus. This destructive faction, incensed by their perceived poor treatment on NXT, dismantled Superstars indiscriminately, demanding that management grant them bona fide contracts.
Thanks to the Anonymous Raw General Manager, Otunga finally signed with WWE in 2010. He’s made the most of his opportunity since, notching the WWE Tag Team Championship twice, with Michael McGillicutty as well as one-time Nexus member John Cena.
In late 2011, Otunga flew solo and provided pro bono legal counsel to John Laurinaitis — in between contesting matches with the likes of Randy Orton and Sheamus. After Big Johnny was ousted from WWE, Otunga began representing others, including Ricardo Rodriguez in a lawsuit against World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus.
The jury is still out on the bowtied, litigious Otunga, who comes across like a super-sized Carlton Banks these days. But he knows as well as anyone, in the WWE court of law, the burden of proof is on him to make his case as a legitimate title contender.
