Fightful Select have reported this week that WWE Superstar and WrestleMania 37 host Titus O’Neil will be the recipient of the Warrior Award at this years Hall of Fame.
Titus, real name Thaddeus Bullard, is known for his charity work around the Tampa Bay area of Florida as much as he is for his wrestling. The former WWE Tag Team Champion (and first ever WWE 24/7 Champion) is the founder of the Bullard Family Foundation which he created to ‘shine the spotlight on communities and people in need.’
He has helped more than 245 student athletes across the Tampa Bay area get into college, lead corporate volunteers in reading books to children in after-school programs, and is often seen giving out food to the homeless on the streets of Tampa. He also hosts an annual Joy of Giving event where he hands out toys to over 1’000 children, and is a regular at the hospital where he visits children with cancer.
Past recipients of the Warrior Award include Connor ‘The Crusher’ Michalek, Joan Lunden, Eric LeGrand, Jarrius ‘JJ’ Robertson, and Sue Aitchison, with O’Neil being the first person on the WWE roster to be receive the honour.
The Warrior Award is for those who have “exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who live life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of the Ultimate Warrior” and we can all agree that Titus fits the description perfectly.
Huge congratulations to a very deserving Titus O’Neil!
