David Otunga

Still a relative newcomer to the squared circle, David Otunga made an impressive first appearance on The Grandest Stage of Them All at WrestleMania XXVIII when he led Team Johnny to victory over Team Teddy to give John Laurinaitis complete control over both Raw and SmackDown. But like any true Superstar, the Harvard-educated lawyer wasn’t satisfied with his spot on the card — he wanted to go on last. 

“I’d like to trade places with John Cena at WrestleMania XXVIII against The Rock,” Otunga admitted. “That was one of the biggest matches of all time and I’d like to see myself in the main event on The Grandest Stage of Them All.” (WATCH)

A bout one year in the making, the epic showdown between the Cenation leader and The People’s Champion drew 78,000 WWE fans to Miami’s Sun Life Stadium and shattered pay-per-view records. The “Once in a Lifetime” encounter between two of WWE’s biggest icons ended with Cena succumbing to a Rock Bottom. Would things have gone differently with Otunga going against The Great One?

“Oh, I definitely would have won,” the smug Superstar said. “I would have taken John Cena’s place, but not his outcome. I clearly would have won.”
