Some moments will forever live in WWE’s infamy.
Fortunately for one superstar, his both during Friday’s Greatest Royal Rumble pay per view may help him ride publicity all the way to the bank. Whether that actually works or not remains to be seen, but former tag team champion, Titus O’Neil, made a very interesting admission on twitter after the incident. The response came after hours upon hours of memes, inspirational messages and hilarious explanations for his unplanned dive into the ring apron.
“It was AT THIS MOMENT….My @WWE #WWEGGR Idea For The Greatest Royal Rumble Moment was Born @WWEShop Get That MERCH ready!!! I’m about to slide….These extra Checks right into the bank.” The message was posted with a picture of O’Neil before the event, which seems to mean that the Titus World Wide founder planned the mishap all along.
While some might claim that this is an attempt to cast O’Neil, who has struggled mightily throughout his career in WWE, in a negative light, one has to wonder if the botch was planned beforehand as a way to introduce a storyline? Another thing that points to this happening is Woken Matt Hardy’s response to O’Neil, which seems to point to them either feuding or teaming up.
With that being said this would be a great starting point for a feud between The Deleters of Worlds and Titus O’Neil and they could also have them team up later on as well. In the end, Raw’s tag team division needs a storyline after the departure of The Bar and the very lackluster result at WrestleMania 34 that saw The longtime tag team lose the titles to Bruan Strowman and a little boy he picked from the crowd.
