Titus O’Neil has reportedly been suspended by WWE for grabbing Vince McMahon at the end of the Daniel Bryan’s retirement speech segment. With all the wrestlers on the stage, Vince started to make his way backstage and that’s when O’Neil grabbed him. Vince turned and shoved O’Neil. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com reports that the word making the rounds is that O’Neil could be suspended for upwards of 90 days.
Powell’s POV: Wade Keller and I discussed the incident on the PWTorch Livecast on Tuesday and that conversation continued into the VIP portion. The strange thing is that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon seemed to be laughing after watching the incident, so we assumed it was just a playful moment between Titus and Vince. Apparently, Vince didn’t feel the same way. WWE has not issued any official statement on the matter and had yet to respond to a request for comment as of this update.
