WWE Chairman Vince McMahon had once planned a segment where Titus O’Neil would throw up on commentator Michael Cole. O’Neil was supposed to spit what he had in his mouth. However, when the time came, he rather than legitimately vomited over the veteran commentator as recently revealed by WWE Hall of Famer John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL).
Vince McMahon told commentators not to acknowledge the hilarious botch
JBL and Cole were part of the WWE commentary team for a few years between 2012 and 2016. The duo worked together on both RAW and SmackDown. JBL is no longer on the team, but Cole continues to commentate, alongside Pat McAfee on SmackDown. It was also recently revealed how Vince had made an offer to WWE star’s wife.
While speaking with Kane at the Steel City Con, JBL narrated a hilarious incident that took place on live television when Titus O’Neil threw up all over Cole. Vince apparently told the commentators not to acknowledge the botch. Here is what JBL said:
“Titus was supposed to drink this pea soup and spit the pea soup out on Michael Cole. Well, he thought he was supposed to drink it and actually throw up. So he drinks it and throws up on Cole. Titus actually threw up on him on live television and Michael is out there with puke all over him and he says, I feel like I’m in a freaking frat party back in college. Vince goes, don’t acknowledge it. Don’t say anything about it. Michael is like, I’m covered in puke. You had a guy puke on me and you don’t want me to talk about it?!”
Michael Cole has been with the company for a long time now and he has been praised on multiple occasions for his skills to call the WWE shows.
