View Full Version : Shelton Benjamin Thinks Otunga Is Not a Good Wrestler!

A recent interview with Shelton Benjamin revealed that he doesn't think David Otunga is a good wrestler and that his marriage to Jennifer Hudson is what is keeping him in the spotlight. Here is what he said:

Jennifer Hudson's fiancé David Otunga is a WWE superstar now. Some people feel as though he's getting a push because he's Jennifer's man. What are your thoughts on him?

No, I don't think he's very good. My guess would be probably, but at the same time whether he's any good or not this is a show. Just by him being in the WWE makes news. People are gonna tune in just to see David Otunga – just to see if he's good or bad. Jennifer Hudson's husband is a pro wrestler. That's gonna draw and it will be foolish on the part of WWE not to take advantage of that. Do I think him being married to Jennifer Hudson helps? Without a doubt. He still has to go in there and perform. Just because he has the job and they're using him doesn't mean that it's gonna stay that way. No disrespect to David because he's a great guy and I've worked with him. I expect him to improve, but if I was running a wrestling company and David Otunga was signed on my company, you're dammed right I'm gonna put him in everyone's face. That's the proof for me.

If he wasn't married to Jay Hudson, we wouldn't know who he is................. But some people know him from somewhere else:

I don't see why you post the same thing Ryan reports, and by the way... Otunga trained in FCW, so obviously it would do nothing for him.

The guy's only moves are a closeline and a book end. If he has a long match, he will use knee drops at some point. The guy sucks! Kofi Kingston could hardly work with him in there match! He makes Hulk Hogan look like a technical wrestler!

Why would other posters have to see a forum post that has exactly what was reported on the main site? And like I said, people who come to EWN.com, see the news bits. We all know what Shelty B said. That's why I said all he had to do was post something like, "What are your thoughts towards what Shelty B said?"

Because some people do not have 'great' memory an forget half of the story before they get to the forum section. So sometimes reposting is necessary. An for a lot of people like myself who do not have a Facebook account turn to these forums to discuss things as Wrestling fans. Just end this argument now before one of you get banned. An to be honest I respect everybody here, and would hate to see somebody leave.

I get what your saying but it would be easier for people who are online and are talking on the fourms who didn't check the news articles so that they don't have to go back to the page to see what Rich Cranium is talking about. TBH, I don't see why you are turning something small to a big deal. Just let it go.

I agree with you 100%. I have at least seen each of his butt cheeks pop out of his man thong every time he does a big move or bends over. It is creepy.

I think Rich's title is taken out of context. But eh....what the hell do I know.

Shelton thinks Otunga is not a good wrestler but he does say that there is always room for improvement. Meaning that there is room for Otunga to grow.

Its just WWE has plans for him BECAUSE of Jennifer Hudson. As Shelton says, having him is not a bad idea.

And yes....Otunga needs pants....

Some of us come directly to the forums without even looking at what's posted on the main page, so it might be a good idea to give your self-important asumptions a rest. You're certainly not going to endear yourself to others by micromanaging anyone's posts, either.

Please allow the most stand out, most liked and has the best f-e-u-d in the EWN community to give his infinite wisdom on this matter. David Otunga is awful. He isn't a pro wrestler he's a nobody that has a famous wife. If it weren't for her he'd be the http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQE1lPSAZ_l0Waec2a-7t3wBo5CL4migTzYRdBweInthDov_gxR at a fast food restaurant of his choosing. Not only does he need to wear pants, he needs to put a http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTXtPDL4B5ZMgeQcnBHhFiE0Dsx8l3m7 6eHojjIs1hcjpesExFbZw to end everyone's misery. That's probably a bit to harsh but I just feel he is taking someones spot who really earned it because of who he's married to.

That's how wrestling is now...in fact, that's how TV is overall. People are obsessed with celebrities, even z list celebs who have absolutely no talent and no reason to be famous.

Otunga isn't the worst I've seen, but it says something about the state of the WWE when a talent like Shelton was fired and Otunga is a regular feature on their main show.

JimmytheBlack
11-29-2010, 12:09 PM
Obviously the WWE goes with star power, and soicialites have star power. People are more familiar with Otunga. He makes people who don't watch wrestling to watch, just to see what him being there is all about. Then they see the other talent, and they're hooked. Shelton Benjamin has zero star power. He sounds bitter because Otunga has more potential to have a better career in the WWE.

He's not that bad. He gives of the feel that he belongs there. Since guys like Cena can become the face of the company. Why can't a guy like Otunga make it? Maybe he got pulled out of the training camp early, but WWE needs new talent, and Otunga fits.
