David Otunga recently spoke with TMZ Sports regarding Lavar Ball’s Raw appearance on Monday.
Otunga hopes WWE brings Ball back so that he can do a segment with him in the future. Otunga said he wasn’t sure how the segment was supposed to but admitted that it did go off the rails, calling it a runaway train. The segment has been drawing mixed reviews, partly because Ball’s 15-year-old son LaMelo used a racial slur during the segment which WWE was forced to apologize for.
The hope from WWE is that Ball’s appearance generates mainstream buzz and provides a short-term ratings spike.
