WWE News: Incredibly heartwarming story behind the t-shirt Titus O'Neil wore on RAW revealed
Many things stood out about this week's stellar episode of Monday Night RAW, but bizarrely, among the topics the WWE Universe were left speculating about was the bright orange t-shirt worn by Titus O'Neil in a backstage segment!
Well, the story behind the former WWE Tag Team Champion's attire has now come to light - and it's better than anyone could have ever hoped.
Former Florida Gator O'Neil actually repped the shirt with a scribbly UT design to raise awareness of bullying prevention, as the shirt was designed after an Altamonte Springs student was bullied for wearing a homemade "UT" shirt during college colours week.
His teacher, Laura Snyder, shared his story on Facebook and the University of Tennessee released a t-shirt with an exact replica of his sketch on the front!
The Vols t-shirt is being sold in aid of STOMP Out Bullying and has already raised more than $16,000 towards charity and that was before it was introduced to the WWE Universe on last night's episode of Monday Night RAW in an incredibly unique way. Snyder then wrote:
The Vols fan base has really impressed this Noles fan with their kindness. I am working to read through all of the comments and will share a few of them with my student each day. By the looks of it, he will have enough to hear every day for the rest of this school year. That’s so awesome to me!! He is definitely a Vols fan, and the Vols Nation has made sure he will be set for college colors day for quite some time!
Titus O’Neil is regarded as one of the veterans in the WWE locker room today, but is equally renowned for his philanthropy, even before this, having previously paid for more than 2,000 underprivileged kids to go to the cinema and see Marvel's Black Panther.
O'Neil also recently released his debut book - There's No Such Thing As A Bad Kid.
