Batista Says He Told Titus O’Neil to Request His WWE Release Following Suspension


– It’s no secret that Batista and Titus O’Neil are good friends, going back to before Titus got signed by WWE. Batista played a big role in Titus getting into the wrestling business.

Batista says he called Titus and told him to ask to be released from his WWE contract today. This comes after Titus was suspended for a reported 90 days due to unprofessional conduct. The incident that got him suspended was when Titus grabbed Vince McMahon in a “playful but physical” way at the end of the post-RAW Daniel Bryan retirement celebration.

When asked if he could call WWE and straighten the situation out, Batista replied on Twitter: “I did something better! I called @TitusONeilWWE and told him to ask to be released. #onelife”

As noted via Wrestling Observer Live, word backstage is that several WWE talents have “been riding the line” lately when it comes to following company rules. The feeling is that Vince suspended Titus to send a message to the roster, that he wants them to act professional and stop “messing around” so much.
