Titus O’Neil reportedly explained to WWE management that the reason he grabbed Vince McMahon on RAW after Daniel Bryan’s retirement speech was a gesture to indicate “ladies first” so Stephanie McMahon could exit the stage first instead of Vince. O’Neil did it in a playful manner, and it was not intended to upset Vince, which it did, and he shoved O’Neil.
As noted, WWE has reduced his suspension from 90 days to 60 days. The reason for the lengthy suspension is due to WWE feeling that the talents need to stop “messing around” and be professionals. As of late, several talents have “been riding the line” in terms of following the company rules lately.
