Titus O’Neil is one of professional wrestling’s ultimate good guys, as a Celebrity Dad of the Year award winner, a man who loves giving back to the community and someone who stands up for social issues such as sexual assault and racism.
For a guy who does so much, it’s difficult to be surprised anymore by O’Neil’s actions —he’s just an all-around good dude who does and promotes positive things. But O’Neil’s latest move was a spur of the moment decision, as he helped a fan by giving him money right out of his own pocket.
The encounter was described in a fan’s Facebook post, and it’s another small glimpse into O’Neil’s caring nature and willingness to reach out and help when needed.
“Guys, I am SHOOK right now. I just went to the meet & greet they had with Titus & Apollo @ Barclays and Titus was asking me some questions about if I’m going to SummerSlam and NXT TakeOver, and I said I want to but not sure yet cuz of money and TITUS GAVE ME $100 TO BUY TIX TO TAKEOVER. Literally just pulled out his wallet and gave me a bill, I thought I was being Punk’d for a sec.
I never thought anything like this would ever happen to me, I am eternally grateful, cuz now I can take my bf as an early bday present, as I had wanted to but wasn’t sure I could due to having to prioritize bills and groceries and stuff. Thank you so much Titus!”
