David Otunga
The Harvard graduate hasn't done much in the ring, but David Otunga seems to have some serious influence where it matters. Why else was he standing next to John Laurinaitis when Triple H was ejected from the arena on the Raw SuperShow?

Dolph Ziggler
He's been on a serious losing streak in recent weeks, so Dolph Ziggler should be nervous going into Vengeance where he'll team with Jack Swagger to challenge Air Boom for the WWE Tag Team Championships and defend his United States Title against Zack Ryder.
