Titus is interesting. Titus makes for great TV when he puts the pieces together. However, there have been times when he reverts back to NXT Season 5 Titus.When I think about it, I would compare his inconsistency to early Smackdown Sean O'Haire. I don't think Titus should be the World champion, but a 3 month US/IC title run would freshen things up in both the division and the overall product. With all of this said, I would love Titus to be the manager of The Street Profits. Get Apollos corny ass out of there and just have Titus managing the new Prime Time Players.

The main reason is that he exposed Vince McMahon as a frail old man. The secondary reason I think is that I don't think I've ever seen a crowd react to him in the slightest.

You must have not been paying attention at all in 2013 then because as part of the Prime Time Players he looked like he was ready to break out as a big time singles babyface. The crowd was always into his hot tags and doing his pose and HURRAH HURRAHS along with him.

 

 

I wasn't paying attention during that time, so fair enough. I have happened to pay attention during heatless feuds with Darren Young or when he's been a manager for Akira Tozawa.

Titus probably got into the business too late for them to consider investing in him too much. He should be a babyface tag guy for life though, that suits his skills best. Hes a victim of WWE being obsessed with breaking up teams/partnerships. Darren was a decent babyface in peril as well so Prime Time Players should have just been a team permanently

I wish they would do more pairing of power guys with high flyers. I realize you can't have too many teams like that or they aren't unique but I could see actually see a Chad Gable tag team with Titus O'Neill being far better than one with Shelton Benjamin, if only because there would be a sharper contrast in size and they could do the spots that people usually enjoy, like when you press slam your partner on to your opponents and that sort of thing.

Any team is better without Shelton Benjamin in it.

Loss is obviously a huge Hart Foundation fan. Maybe we should reopen that old thread.

They should look to go down that route with some of the cruiserweight guys, though the midcard is kinda thin on the ground in terms of people they could throw into teams

There was that one time in that 2013 period when the crowd suddenly got hot for a Titus/Roman staredown, I think it was during one of those Shield vs the roster matches. For a moment at least, he came off like a big deal the people could get behind. I did enjoy his brief feud with Rusev before they turned him again and I generally dig the Titus Brand though found it odd that Tozawa just disappeared from it.

I'm probably higher than most in terms of TItus' ring work (I'm a sucker for shit-talking powerhouses ala Mark Henry), but what really got me behind him was how much of a genuinely wonderful human being he is. Here's a guy who rounded up a few homeless people and treated them to a meal at a restaurant inbetween shows simply to give back. He seems like a great father and I thought that Take Time to be a Dad campaign would have gotten him more elevation in WWE. Coupled with a tragic childhood you'd think there would be a lot to feed the WWE marketing system.

I legit would love to see Drew Gulak at my local flea market, getting into arguments with little kids and grandmothers.
