WWE Universe knows Titus O’Neil for giving back to the community

Previously, Titus O’Neil was a finalist for the same award in 2020. Apart from that, the Warrior Award has been bestowed upon him too. Furthermore, WWE is planning to induct him to the WWE Hall of Fame soon.

The fact that he deserves this nomination is because there are several stories of Titus O’Neil working round the clock to help families and individuals in need. It’s believed he realized the importance of helping others after he suffered through poverty and bullying during his childhood days.

Even though O’Neil is not performing inside the ring anymore, he still remains an integral part of the company. He moved away from in-ring matches quietly. However, he will come back to dominate the squared circle if the company needs him to.

The last time the WWE Universe saw Titus O’Neil on-screen or in the arena was during WrestleMania 37. Hulk Hogan and he were the hosts of The Show of Shows.
