I want to spend some time talking to you all today on my personal opinions on a guy that is not deserving of being in WWE. Not deserving of being in TNA, ROH, NJPW or even your local Indy promotion near you. I would go ahead and give you 3 guesses at to who I’m talking about but I’m pretty damn certain you will all guess who it is. Yes you got it.
Titus O Neil
First of all, why is he in WWE.
Some of the best wrestlers in the world right now are contracted to WWE. Including Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, AJ Styles, & American Alpha just to name a few. When you see these names you think about quality. The quality of matches they put on and how great their wrestling ability is.
If you were to go to a local WWE house show tomorrow night and one of the matches was say Seth Rollins vs. Titus O’Neil you would feel like your money was completely wasted. Yes you’re going to see the talented Seth Rollins but then again when he’s facing off against Titus O’Neil, the match has just got as interesting as politics.
Guys like AJ Styles & Jericho have proved time and time again that they can work with anybody. They change their style accordingly to their opponent in the ring. Yet no-one can make Titus look good in the ring because that’s literally asking the impossible. If AJ Styles were to go 1 on 1 with Titus I just wouldn’t be interested as Titus reflects badly on whoever he works with.
Titus O'Neil is literally the worst wrestler I have ever seen in my life

To make it to the top in WWE you need to have it all. You need to work your ass off to get to the top for as long as possible. Now, of course everyone wants to be in that top spot at WrestleMania, but we all know everyone isn’t going to get that chance.
Guys who constantly prove themselves in WWE or any wrestling promotion are the ones with the titles and the big money feuds, who the company can trust to deliver what is needed, any day of the week. These are the true superstars.
Moving back to Titus, whenever he wrestles, he is so slow in the ring, and awkward, almost as if he doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing. He botches moves and spots a hell of a lot and this is just not on. Professional wrestling is all about safety. You are in the ring with your opponent putting on a show, putting your opponent’s life in your hands. If you can’t even master the basics you shouldn’t even be allowed in the ring, let alone wrestle some of the top stars of today. (I’ve actually seen Titus botch an Irish whip. Yes that’s how bad he really is).
In wrestling we have jobbers (whose job it is to enhance other talent and make them look good). Titus isn’t even qualified to job. He is dangerous in the ring and I really can’t comprehend why he is still allowed to step foot in the ring. I know a lot of people have opinions of the taller guys not being as fast or as good as the smaller guys, bit look at big Cass, the Big Show and Braun Strowman for example. They are proof tall wrestlers can do everything smaller ones can. So that’s no excuse.
Noam Dar did more in the last 10 minutes than Titus O'Neil has done in the last 10 weeks

Titus has been involved in 2 PPV events this year. One was the 30 man Royal Rumble match (so we will ignore that), however, let’s move on to the MITB PPV. Titus challenged Rusev for the United States Championship. Titus hasn’t ever been a great wrestler, it’s not like at MITB he was good and it went downhill from there. He has never been deserving to even appear on Raw let alone a PPV in which people pay money to see. Rusev is a great character and wrestles really well, but again as previously said the fact that he’s facing Titus takes everything away from this match. I feel sorry for any wrestler having to face Titus because it’s just a sad fact that he will make them look shit if I’m being honest.
Doing more research I’ve looked into his current WWE earnings and I’ve got to say. I’m pretty disgusted in what I found.
In 2014 and 2015 Titus O’Neil got a fixed WWE salary of $135,000 and $182,000 respectively. In 2015, there was a discussion to increase his salary to $300,000 but was not approved later and currently earning $265k.
Also, according to his contract, for 2016-2017 he will also earn $304,750.
So for just a few years work he will earn just under $1 million. That is utterly disgusting. For a ‘talent’ as atrocious and terrible as Titus is in the ring to earn that amount of money pisses me off so much. WWE could donate to charity, give to third world countries, anything else than pay that disgrace of a ‘wrestler’ 1 million dollars.
I’d you compare this salary to some of the other current stars in WWE just do a quick Google search and you will find lesser paid talent (with actual wrestling talent).
Admittedly there are others on the roster who I won’t name who I personally think they have no part being in WWE, but they can actually wrestle and can have good matches. The only reason I believe they shouldn’t be in WWE is I believe they could have a better career on the Indy’s. Something which Titus should not do.
I’m never one to want someone to lose their job, but WWE really need to release Titus O Neil. He is embarrassing their product and embarrassing himself and to be quite frank he just needs to leave the wrestling business altogether. He may have been a professional football player but he’s no athlete.why he ever worked towards a wrestling career I don’t know. Just please get this untalented disgrace off of our televisions and replace him with someone who we can enjoy and would be totally willing to pay money to see.
