A lot of people confuse wrestlers with their characters. In the case of David Otunga, who is married to Oscar Winner Jennifer Hudson, it seems like nothing could be further from the truth. On television, he plays a pompous and arrogant Harvard Law grad who is a perfect lackey for his boss, John Laurinaitis. Outside of the ring he did something really cool for a young WWE fan while giving an anti-bullying speech at a Miami middle school.

The details from TMZ

Otunga was in Florida on Friday to give an anti-bullying talk at a John F. Kennedy Middle School — and as part of the event … the school raffled off a ticket to Wrestlemania 28 this weekend in Miami Gardens, where The Rock will face off against John Cena.

The kid who won the raffle turned out to be a refugee from Haiti’s massive 2010 earthquake — and now lives with foster parents in the US. Two weeks ago, the boy’s biological mother died in Haiti.

Otunga caught wind of the boy’s story — and was so moved he decided a simple Wrestlemania ticket wasn’t enough … so he personally set up a meet-and-greet for the kid backstage … with ALL the wrestlers at the event.

Very cool thing to do for a kid who has had a pretty rough young life.
