David Otunga Reveals Why He Stopped Wrestling

The ugly saga between WWE superstar David Otunga and now-ex wife Jennifer Hudson continues in court. David's attorney released the following statement:

Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer's actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son [8-year-old David Daniel Otunga Jr.]. David Otunga has been trying to negotiate the terms of an amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now. However, when it became apparent to Ms. Hudson that Mr. Otunga would be the parent granted residential care of the child, as a result of Mr. Otunga being the child's primary caregiver while Ms. Hudson pursues her career all over the world, Ms. Hudson decided to file a meritless Petition for Order of Protection in an effort to gain an unfair advantage in the custody dispute. As a result of Mr. Otunga's career in the WWE, Ms. Hudson felt that she could give an award winning performance in court to portray herself as the victim. Mr. Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son, and it is unfortunate, especially in today's climate, that she would feel the need to make these false allegations against him. Mr. Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties' only child.

To go even further on this, it may have been revealed as to why Otunga suddenly stopped wrestling some time ago. Apparently, about five years ago, Ms. Hudson gave her husband an ultimatum to either continue to wrestle or be with his family. After that, David quit wrestling and stuck to his on-air role as a 'legal advisor' and then eventually switched over to commentator. Otunga now sticks to the Kick-Off panels and the occasional acting job.
