WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler recently spoke with the folks from The Twin Lakes Sports Network about Titus O'Neil. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On Titus O'Neil's slide and advice he gave him: "I actually talked to Titus the next day, and I said, 'man, that's something that you really need to capitalize on, and 'if you could start doing that every week on your ring entrances, if you get down to the ring and just, all of a sudden, take that belly bump and slide all the way under the ring, and then have your opponent come over and look down and just be laughing, then you come from the other side of the ring, come across, roll him up, get a quick 1-2-3, all of a sudden, it makes you look like the smartest guy in the world."
On why the Titus World-Slide turned out to benefit O'Neil even if it was unfortunately short-lived: "[Titus] said, 'that's a great idea, and we'll go with that,' except for the fact that they realized they use those big LED light boards on the side of the rings now, so you can't really go up under them like that."
On O'Neil's infamous botch at the WWE Greatest Royal Rumble event: "It was a cool thing that happened to Titus, because it will always be remembered."
