WWE Problems and Injuries Plague Wrestlemania Season

WWE Problems and Injuries continue to plague the already rattled promotion as it makes its way to closer to their biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania 32.

WWE Problems

First, let’s give the story as first reported by PWInsider.com:

WWE star Titus O’Neil was sent home from last night’s Smackdown taping in Portland, Oregon shortly after he arrived. The word we are getting is that O’Neil has been suspended for unprofessional conduct.
During the ending of Monday’s Raw taping in Seattle, Washington, a number of WWE personalities and staff were assembled on the stage in honor of the retiring Bryan Danielson.

At the end of that segment, which aired on Raw before going live on the WWE Network, Danielson returned to the locker room after passing through the center of the assembled WWE personnel.

As WWE talents returned to the back, O’Neill grabbed WWE owner Vince McMahon by the arm in what was described to us as in a “playful, physical way.” McMahon responded by shoving O’Neil away. McMahon’s shove of O’Neill actually made it onto the final seconds of the broadcast.

Then there’s the part about Titus O’ Neil good friend (who helped recruit Titus into the WWE) Dave Batista who offered some advice:

I did something better! I called @TitusONeilWWE and told him to ask to be released. #onelifehttps://t.co/ileACzeB8j

Completely overshadowed from all of this was the fact that Daniel Bryan (due to injury by the way) announced his retirement minutes before the arm grabbing incident.

I’m sorry, but Vince McMahon might under a lot of pressure but penalizing O’ Neil for what really looks to a minor infraction perceived as disrespecting the WWE Chairman.

Vince McMahon and the WWE have to get a grip on intimidating their contracted talent, and give them some room to breathe, instead of trying to make examples of them. -KOP
