Jim Ross comments on Titus O'Neil's suspension
WWE suspending Titus O’Neil over ‘unprofessional conduct’ has been surrounded by a lot of controversies as former stars and the WWE Universe are scratching their head over the suspension. The latest to join the list is WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross as he gave away his verdict on this issue on his blog. He said
”The controversial suspension of Titus O’Neil by WWE last week for ‘unprofessional conduct’ still hs many folks scratching their head.
“I can’t render a clear cut opinion based on the brief video clip that was floating around for a while plus I’ve talked to no one about the matter that would know any substantive information. I’ve never known Titus to be a problem and actually he’s one of WWE’s most willing participants when it comes to volunteer and charity work.
“I only wonder, in hindsight, how this matter would have been adjudicated if the decision regarding punishment was delayed until the next day when all parties had a night to sleep on this matter. I have heard that Titus was fined in the neighborhood of 5K for his conduct plus a 60 day suspension.
“One has to wonder if this punishment was also utilized to get the attention of the entire roster especially if some talents were thought to be becoming to lax in their approach to their job.
“Could this have been a matter where too many talents are relaxing in their comfort zones which is the proverbial ‘kiss of death’ in any organization? That’s 100% speculation on my behalf by the way. At the end of the day, I hope that Titus O’Neil is able to find his way back into the good graces with the powers that be and can resume his WWE career.
