Titus O’Neil Speaks On Friendship With Batista, Vomiting On Zeb Colter, More

The following are highlights from a recent Hampton Roads interview with WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil:

On his friendship with Batista, and how Batista convinced him to become a wrestler: “I used to be, like, ‘No, I’m not doing it. I’m going into coaching; that’s what I want to do,’ Dave, who’s probably one of my best friends, was, like, ‘But I really think you’d do well in it. You have the size and the charisma and the athleticism to do it.’ But I just kept saying, ‘No, I don’t think it’s for me.’ ”

On how he got his start in WWE: “It was really just blind faith based on what Dave had been telling me, but I walked in and had about a 15-minute conversation with (trainer and former WWE wrestler) Steve Keirn about wrestling and trying out and stuff like that. It was only about 15 minutes after I finished talking to him and left that the WWE called me and said they wanted me to try out. They had a show that day, so I went and picked my kids up from school, and I asked them if they wanted to go to a wrestling match. The next thing you know, two weeks after that, Daddy’s wrestling for the WWE.”

On vomiting on Zeb Colter: “I guess that’s something I can put under my belt: I can vomit on cue. Hey, our job is to entertain people, and I guess it entertained a lot of people…. There are a lot of people who want to hit Zeb Colter in the mouth on a regular basis, but me throwing up on him was just as good.”

      I like Titus but thats the problem with WWE, they just sign big muscular guys with no wrestling ability instead of signing guys that work their asses of on the independent, regardless of their size.

      Tongue in cheek word of warning to Titus…the last guy who told WWE he could vomit on cue ended up being called Puke a.k.a Droz a.k.a Darren Drozdov and that guy is in a wheelchair for life!

        Um there’s no written law that states when WWE signs talent that talent has to have wrestled on the independent scene prior to signing with WWE.even with various major promotions like NWA ,AWA, & WCW being dead that’s not something they absolutely have to do. Plus the average wrestling fan can care about wrestling ability it’s all about how likeable you are as wrestler not how hard you willing to work or how many moves you know and utilize in a match.

      That was an accident what happened to him. He knows it wasnt d-los intentions to hurt him. He slipped on trash in the ring.
