Titus O'Neil's punishment was seen as harsh by a lot of the WWE Universe..

How WWE must work Titus O'Neil back onto the roster

Published 1 Comments

Followers of WWE will be pleased to know the suspension of Titus O'Neil following his altercation with Vince McMahon ended last week.

As confirmed by Mike Johnson of PWInsider, O'Neil's welcome return should be imminent as his lengthy time away from the company has come to an end.

Many members of the WWE Universe were shocked to learn that the 38-year-old was to be suspended for 90 days after grabbing Vince McMahon's arm playfully earlier this year during an episode of Monday Night Raw.

WWE appeared to listen to the opinions of their fans for once as O'Neil's punishment was reduced to 60 days; though this still seemed extreme for the minor mistake he made.

In a strange way, O'Neil's incident with the boss of WWE and consequential suspension for his actions have given him an amount of focus which he did not have before.

This focus has meant the WWE Superstar has received support from many followers of professional wrestling, who previously would not have even mentioned his name.

As well as this, Titus O'Neil is not only a devoted father but also someone who is hugely committed to charity work, giving fans even more reason to be on the side of the former college football player.

Despite being a mid-card talent, O'Neil's capability in the ring is undeniably impressive, and it is for reasons such as this as well as those listed above which should see him worked back onto the roster in the way he deserves.

Big return

Unfortunately, the WWE appear to be continuing with the trend of giving an unbalanced amount of focus to the talent on the roster.

With this in mind, Superstars who are deserving of the most focus are scheduled into meaningless matches which they more often than not lose, making their credibility meaningless. 

The company, however, has the chance with Titus O'Neil not to make the same mistake and, instead, incorporate him into a story line which means the support he has recently received will continue with regard to his wrestling ability.

Perhaps the most simple and effective option would be to bring O'Neil into the picture as a contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship Title.

Prior to the occurrence on Raw, one-half of The Prime Time Players could well have been included in the multi-man ladder match at WrestleMania 32, meaning he could be seen as a plausible option as a new title-chaser.

Alternatively, O'Neil could have just as much of an impact by returning alongside Darren Young as they prove themselves as a justifiable duo to compete for the WWE Tag Team Titles.

Whichever route WWE chooses to go down with regard to the return of Titus O'Neil, the company must be careful not to let him fade into the background as his incident with Vince McMahon has proved that, if nothing else, the WWE Universe will certainly back him.
