UPDATE 2x: WWE has reduced his suspension from 90 days to 60 days.
UPDATE: Bryan Alvarez reported on Wednesday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Live that Vince suspended Titus to send a message to the locker room. WWE feels 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.
Alvarez said that this incident was “one messing around too many” and McMahon used Titus as an example.
Original: WWE has suspended Titus O’Neil after he had an incident with Vince McMahon on RAW. After RAW went off the air on the USA Network, the WWE Network streamed a live feed from the arena of Daniel Bryan celebrating with fans at ringside following his retirement speech. All of the main roster WWE stars were on stage as well as Vince McMahon. Bryan was hugged by Vince and walked to the back. Before the live feed ended, O’Neill grabbed McMahon in a “playful, physical way.” However, McMahon didn’t take it like that and shoved O’Neil. McMahon was angry at being grabbed and that led to the suspension.

WWE has removed the WWE Network exclusive video of Bryan’s farewell from Youtube and WWE.com as well as the WWE Network.
