WWE has suspended Titus O’Neil after he confronted Vince McMahon during RAW on Monday night, Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com reports.
Johnson reports that O’Neil’s suspension “could be for upwards of 90 days,” which would leave him out of Wrestlemania 32 on April 3.
Monday night’s edition of RAW included a farewell appearance by Daniel Bryan, who announced his retirement during the show. Daniel passed by other members of the WWE roster as he left the ring area, and the other stars filed out after him. As McMahon passed O’Neil, O’Neil grabbed him by the arm.
The moment was included in a clip of the show that WWE posted on YouTube. The clip was pulled and posted again later with the confrontation edited out. WWE has disabled comments on the video.
O’Neil, a former arena football player whose real name is Thaddeus Bullard, signed with WWE in 2009 and was promoted to the main roster in 2012.
