The most controversial story in the world of professional wrestling right now is the suspension of Titus O’Neil. Monday night after Daniel Bryan’s retirement celebration on Raw, Titus grabbed Vince McMahon and Vince pushed him away. It was playful and all in good fun, but WWE has decided to make an example out of Titus O’Neil by suspending him for 90 days for unprofessional conduct.
Batista has always been supportive of his friend Titus O’Neil as Batista is actually the one that helped Titus land a WWE contract. Batista was asked on Twitter if he would contact WWE and do something about the suspension. Batista said that he did something better instead. He called Titus O’Neil and told him to ask for his release.

Batista has been critical in the past of the WWE creative team and their lack of direction for Titus O’Neil specifically. He posted the following on Twitter back in May of 2015.
“WWE: “@TitusONeilWWE you’re everything a WWE star should be! Get out there and represent our company!! ” Titus: “Then why don’t you give me a push?’ WWE: “Sorry there’s nothing for you creatively” #sameoldbullshit”
