Wrestler Wrankings™: 2012-13 Season, Week 42

What gives with David Otunga? Find out more in this week's edition of Wrestler Wrankings!

David Otunga is a two-time WWE Tag Team Champion, the husband of Hollywood celebrity singer/actress Jennifer Hudson, a Harvard Law graduate, clearly knows his way around a weight room, always keeps his coffee piping hot, and was trained by the esteemed Norman Smiley, and the "Dr. of Desire" Tom Pritchard.

David Otunga also has something in common with the following people: Sid Justice, Hunico, Primo, Big Van Vader, Rikishi, Jack Swagger, Road Warrior Animal, Titus O'Neil, Alex Riley, and Michael frickin' Cole!

All of these people are the proud owners of exactly two Wrankings points.

So what gives, Otunga? You're in what should be your prime, yet you haven't won a match since April. And don't feed me some line about being too busy with your clearly burgeoning law career to make an impact in WWE. Irwin R. Schyster (otherwise known as I.R.S.) won and defended the World Wrestling Federation Tag Team Championship with Ted DiBiase during the spring of 1992... right during tax time, his busiest (and favorite) season of the year!!!

I love the travel mug, love the better than everyone attitude, love the theme song, love the physique, but I can't stomach a chronic loser. Pick it up, Mr. Otunga. We'll be watching...
