>According toPwinsider.com, Titus O’Neil was sent home from last night’s Smackdown taping in Portland, Oregon shortly after he arrived. The site reports that he was suspended for unprofessional conduct.
>At the end of the Daniel Bryan retirement ceremony, the WWE performers were on the stage to pay tribute to Bryan. At the end of the segment (which aired on the WWE Network) Bryan returned to the locker room after passing through the center of the assembled WWE personnel. As he went to the back, O’Neill grabbed WWE owner Vince McMahon in what was described to us as in a “playful, physical way.” McMahon then shoved O’Neil, which was visible at the end of the broadcast.
>Pwinsider.comreports that McMahon was angry at being grabbed and that led to the suspension. When O’Neil arrived at Smackdown last night, he was informed that he was being sent home. While there is no official word from WWE, there is speculation that the suspension could be for upwards of 90-days. That would put O’Neil out of action through May and obviously out of WrestleMania 32.
>Last night, the WWE Network exclusive video of Daniel Bryan’s farewell was removed from Youtube and WWE.com as well as the WWE Network; the speculation is so that they can edit the ending.
Oh yeah im sure u say "nigger" casually IRL. Shut the fuck up you edgy neckbeard faggot.
How's that playful?, he's your boss, you just don't get to him like that, specially on live TV and in a moment like that.
And it's just titus, this is a good opportunity to send him to TNA, if Matt hardy is the champ there well, Titus definitively can be a top star too.
It was playful in the way a person would punch their friend when saying hello to them.
Titus thought him and Vince were cool enough that he could do something like that.
Apparently they're not.
That makes no sense, specially during that context, they weren't drinking beer together they were paying their respects to the retirement of Dbry.
It's hard to believe that Titus is that dumb, then again, he's a nigger so it could be like that all the same.
>then again, he's a nigger so it could be like that all the same.
>then again, he's a nigger so it could be like that all the same.
>"look mom i said nigger on a Mexican taco discussion imageboard, a-am i c-cool yet?"
Not seeing it in the webm (>>967491) but if that's the case, then yeah it would be in friendly terms.
Still not the place nor the best time to do it, but it would come like "playful but inappropriate" instead of just rude.
There's bosses and bosses, and you, me and everyone know that vince can be a real asshole if he feels like it, something like this i wouldn't put it behind him at all.
>something like this i wouldn't put it behind him at all.
Yes Vince is a petty bastard, but what Titus did isn't a crime.
No one even cared to talk about it in the thread cause of how much of a non-issue it was.
I think Titus just got caught up in the moment with the informal atmosphere. They were celebrating a colleagues career and he just got too chummy.
Reprimand him, sure, but a three month suspension for what is presumably a first time offence seems really harsh.
Titus is a team player and a hard worker who wrestles all year and now hes suspended and going to miss wrestlemania over some petty bullshit. Vince is such a faggot.
>Steph: I can't believe he did that! Who does he think he is! We have to do something!
>Vince: ha ha! Its okay Steph, Titus just likes to play around.
>Steph: NO DAD! HE EMBARRASSED YOU IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE ROSTER! You have to suspend him!
>Vince: DAMMIT YOU'RE RIGHT. Get Titus ass in here now!
Titus is the most boring person on the roster and I mute all his matches. Hope he stays gone.
Holy shit you're still here? Shouldn't you be shitposting on /b/ or /pol/ kid?
>mfw i have a small dick but its bigger than Titus O Neils feelsgoodman.png
Not being funny but I freak out whenever people aggressively grab me, there's just no fucking need to act like that. I remember in college and someone would yank me like I was some kind of doll, it's not cool, where is the respect for people's space?
It's not cool in my opinion and especially if I was the CEO of a huge corporation, he wasn't wrestling, so there's a time and a place.
What if he grabbed Steph like that? What if it was a white guy? What if it was a white guy who grabbed Steph like that?
Think about these things and I imagine people would be reacting differently.
1. He didn't grab Stephanie
2. There was no clear malicious intent, even to an autist it's a clear friendly gesture
3. Stop trying to create imaginary scenarios, 3 month suspension for just that is ludicrous.
Was Paige punished when some guy dressed as wolverine was rubbing his penis all over her? Was she suspended for 3 months?
>2. There was no clear malicious intent, even to an autist it's a clear friendly gesture
idk i cant think of a time any of my buddies ever yanked my arm and pulled me back infront of everyone on national tv during an emotional moment
hes honestly a dumb nigger, no one else was "playing around" why the fuck did he
All I'm saying is when someone has ever done that to me, believe me in high school grabbing people like that happened, I never felt like that was playful, it always seemed malicious.
To the person doing it, there's no doubt Titus was being playful because he's a nice guy and isn't malicious but he's also probably dumb and people generally are, they don't think how the person they just grabbed feels about being grabbed.
I think 3 months is a bit harsh for sure but the fact of the matter is this, you didn't see anybody else acting "playful". There's a time and a place.
>3 months suspension for being friendly with your boss.
I don't think you NEETs know how long that is. It's not like he assaulted him.
If it was Aygay Styles getting suspended you idiots would have started an online petition and gotten #cancelwwenetwork trending.
mr. dumb as fuck himself
>preshow: ryback and the usos vs stardust and the ascension
>main event: braun strowman vs big show
I love the way Titus walks away in the video after Vince pushes him. He knows he's fucked up, and he knows people knows he fucked up and he is so embarrassed that he just walks the opposite direction.
He knows people won't understand his rationale of being playful since it was such a stupid fucking decision to begin with.
> Vince: "Did you just touch me? Dammit Titus, that's 90 days in the hotbox! Maybe that will teach your black ass some manners!"
> Titus: "A'hm sorry massa, won't happen again massa, I promise massa. Ooooh lordy!"
> Vince: "Now go out there and dance for all the nice white kids out there!"
> Black History Month
> WWE celebrates it every year
> Blackie gets a little too playful
> YOU'RE SUSPENDED FOR 90 DAYS!
Not even him but yall need to lighten up. No one will stop saying NIGGER on 4chan so just get used to it or be prepared to be laughed at over and over every time you try to say it's wrong. Why would you come here if you're so easily offended?
You can just eat shit and fuck off. Even if you do use reddit there is absolutely no reason to announce it, and even less of a reason to try and bring they're culture over here.
This nigga can't even use memes correctly. Your new shows more every post breh.
>black history month
>vince makes a black guy history
He's fine. He would've gotten away with it if the camera cut didn't catch it, but Vince actually like's Titus.
He's pissed for sure about how it made it on screen, but Titus brings way too much good PR to the company to get released for something like this.
Also Vince likes it if you horseplay and try to get rough with him. He hates yes men pansies who don't stand up for themselves and not try to step on anyone's toes.
That's why he likes to try and wrestle with Angle and fought Kofi on a plane once
>Implying Vince didnt enjoy being manhandled by Titus
>implying Steph wasnt the one who suspended him
>implying Vince wont give him a megapush when comes back
>implying all the boys in the locker arent worshipping Titus for making Vince look like a weak retarded fuckboi on national televisiuon
Jesus fuck why do you guys have to be so racist? This place could be great for discussion of wrestling, but the second a black person is mentioned everyone has to start flinging around "nigger."
Stop making 4chan not fun.
>Jesus fuck why do you guys have to be so racist?
Why do you have to over react to people acting natural ? You're the one freaking out, and pretending a board that's majority white should somehow not noticethat black people are below us.
>Stop making 4chan not fun.
Take your own advice by removing the stick in your ass
>people acting natural
I'm pretty using racial slurs in reaction to a person of color playfully grabbing someone's arm isn't natural. It's just racist. I won't even bother with the rest of your comment because you know why it's wrong.
So playful that he got suspended for 3 months over it
>you know why it's wrong.
Cowardly liberal faggot thinks he wins just because he holds the majority opinion. No care for truth, or actual backing on his views just wants to be in the progressive zeitgeist
We got ourselves a freud over here
Think of all the superstars tapings he's going to miss!
DESU he had a moment of tremendous bad judgment. He acknowledged it. People have been released for less.
I don't know why this story has gained such momentum.
Yes, but in that moment?
Did he think being goofy with the boss would be a good thing in what was supposed to be a very serious moment?
Or was his intention actually of an aggressive nature and he thought this was the right moment to vent his frustration and pick as his target THE BOSS OF THE COMPANY!
It's just so weird on so many levels
Vince does shit like this all the time from what we hear. He really has no reason to get this butthurt about someone doing it back to him. I mean a week suspension seems more in line. 3 fucking months seems like overkill.
>Pro Wrestling Sheet has sources who tell him the arm-grab-heard-round-sports-entertainment was actually just Titus O'Neil trying to be a gentleman.
>O'Neil reportedly told WWE management he was just trying to ensure that Stephanie McMahon walked off stage before Vince McMahon in adherence to "ladies first" etiquette. The Superstar, who was initially suspended 90 daysfor the perceived slight to the Chairman, says he understands how his gesture could be misconstrued, but insists his intent was only to be polite.
>le supreme gentleman
What exactly is the point of titus? Is it to appeal to the black crowd? Just to bark? He's almost 40. Is it to be a giga nigga? Mark Henry and Big E already exist for that.
Seriously, why is here?
>"In case you don't remember, I'll give you a recap of Yesterday. Titus O'Neil tugged Vince McMahon, Vince tugged Titus, after that Titus was suspended for 90 days.
>Now because this entire thing got news attention, notably the NY Post. The suspension has been reduced, to 60 days.
>The fans were outraged, including others including me calling Vince McMahon a racist.
>WWE later responded to the claims by saying.
>"The suspension of Titus O'Neil had nothing to do with race and everything to do with unprofessional conduct," WWE told the Post in a statement. They added that Titus "acknowledged the gravity of his mistake" in a text message, writing:
>"I feel like shit now so if you have to let me go, I understand. Stupid mistake."
Titus made the mistake in thinking he was included. Gotta have complexion, for the protection, for the collection.
>le supreme suspended gentleman
>no one gave a fuck about Titus one week ago
>did jobber piss break matches once every three weeks
>everyone suddenly acts like he had presence on the show
