Titus O'Neil responds to WWE suspension with a Bible verse

News broke earlier today that Titus O'Neil was suspended by WWE for 90 days due to what the company is calling "unprofessional conduct." It wasn't long after that WWE confirmed the news. He grabbed Vince McMahon's arm and stopped him from walking to the back just after Daniel Bryan's retirement speech on Monday Night Raw this week, in full view of the cameras, and while he was almost certainly joking, he was punished for his actions.

His response came a short time ago via Instagram:

"For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled (ranked below others who are honored or rewarded), and he who humbles himself (keeps a modest opinion of himself and behaves accordingly) will be exalted (elevated in rank)."
‭‭Luke‬ ‭14:11‬ ‭#Blessed #ContentOfCharacter #Faith #Family #Community

I'm certainly no expert on the Bible and its many verses but it would seem he's taking this as though his head got a little too big and he was knocked down for it. Whether or not you agree with the severity of the punishment, it's hard to argue that horseplay, at a time like that, with the Chairman of the Board, of all people, was a bad idea.
