The mainstream media has once again made mention of WWE, and this time it is because of Kanye West. The rapper was throwing a huge launch party for his new clothing line and wanted famous faces to be there. Among those that he invited were Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan. Kanye also stated that he wanted every awesome wrestler to be invited. Neither Hogan nor Flair attended the party, but David Otunga showed up with Jennifer Hudson.

A rather interesting question was asked of Ryback during a recent interview. The former Intercontinental Champion stated that he would not completely rule out a potential reunion of the Nexus stable that WWE did a couple of years ago. Former members (Wade Barrett, Darren Young, Heath Slater, David Otunga and Curtis Axel) are still on the roster. Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt would not fit in nowadays.

Since the entire company is in New York this weekend for Summerslam, people did not bat an eye when David Otunga was spotted in the area. The assumption is that he is basically there to work. However, the seldom used WWE star revealed that he has actually moved to the Big Apple. The belief is that the reason for doing so is because his wife is in the entertainment industry.

Even though he is no longer utilized as an in ring performer, David Otunga is still considered a marketing asset to WWE because he is married to Jennifer Hudson. They do not mind giving him odd jobs here and there because he is able to do the mainstream media tours. A lot of shows still request him more than the other wrestlers because of his relationship. There is a good chance that Otunga will forever remain just an ambassador for the company.

Since his wife is against the idea of him being on the road so much, David Otunga is very unlikely to be a full time in ring performer for WWE anytime soon. However, he might be getting a match at Wrestlemania. There are talks that Otunga could be used in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. The company normally would not do that, but since Otunga is viewed as somewhat of a celebrity, the idea would be given some considerations.

Things are still very much up in the air for Alex Riley right now. As many of you already know, he is quite upset with WWE for pulling the rug on his return to the ring at the Royal Rumble. However, a release from his contract has yet to be granted. Management also does not appear to have much interest in him returning full time as an in ring performer. His broadcasting duties have been relieved by the returning David Otunga already.

There have been questions and speculations floating around about the status of Alex Riley in WWE. The belief is that he wants out of his contract and out of the company to pursue other opportunities in professional wrestling. Things became even cloudier yesterday when David Otunga was brought in to replace Riley on the Monday Night Raw kickoff show. Otunga has been off the road for quite some time now and is rarely used by the company.
