Earlier today, WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil posted a photo to Twitter of himself hanging out in Rome with some other wrestlers including Matt Hardy, Heath Slater, and Curtis Axel. Unfortunately, that photo also included Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman, who are currently involved in a major feud on Monday Night RAW which saw Strowman flip over an ambulance containing Reigns’ broken body after brutally assaulting him, and continued with Strowman causing internal injuries to Reigns by beating him with the steel ring steps at WWE Payback. With such a heated feud, WWE likely doesn’t want the two to be seen hanging out together in public, even if ideas of “protecting the business” aren’t as strong as they once were. Back in the day, you would probably get stabbed in a Puerto Rican dressing room for exposing the business this badly. That being said, nowadays, ideas of “making Roman look strong” are much stronger than ever, and that preppy windbreaker doesn’t make Roman look very strong.
And in the capital of his empire, no less!

Sure enough, after the tweet made headlines all over the wrestling dirt sheets, Titus deleted the tweet. Or, perhaps, WWE deleted it for him, as it was discovered during a recent hack that WWE appears to have the social media passwords of at least some of its stars.
O’Neil was suspended last year after misjudging a situation and attempting to engage in horseplay with Vince McMahon near the end of Daniel Bryan’s retirement segment, reportedly angering Vince, who wanted the moment to come off as very serious on television. Could Titus be in the doghouse again?
