Titus O’Neil was born on April 29, 1977 in Boynton Beach, Florida. His family moved to Live Oak, Florida and grew up in a Christian household.

He attended Suwannee High School, where he was a stellar football player for the Suwannee Bulldogs. Titus was such a standout player on the high school football team that he was profiled by USA Today, SuperPrep and Parade Magazine. Due to his incredible high school football career, he was given an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida and played for Florida Gators Football from 1997 to 2000. He graduated in 2000 and was initiated as a brother of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity.

Titus is dating Omarosa Manigault (2013). He has two children, Thaddeus “TJ” Jr. and Titus Bullard. He presently lives in Tampa, Florida.

For four years, Titus starred in the Arena Football League (AFL) and played with four teams: the Utah Blaze, Tampa Bay Storm, Las Vegas Gladiators and Carolina Cobras. He finished his football career shortly after and turned his attention towards professional wrestling.

In 2009, Titus signed a developmental deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (2009) and started to train in the company’s developmental league, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). Within one year, he made his FCW television debut as part a tag team with Skip Sheffield (now known as Ryback). He later tagged with Damien Sandow to win the FCW Tag Team Championship, in which they lost a few months later.

Titus was a contestant in the second season of WWE NXT and had Zack Ryder as his mentor. Surprisingly, Titus was the very first person to be eliminated from the show. However, Titus was selected to be a part of NXT Redemption, which was the series’ fifth season. He later formed a tag team with Darren Young and the duo moved up to the main roster known as The Prime Time Players with a manager named A.W.

Titus and Darren were a tag team for two years until they split up in 2014. After an unsuccessful singles push, Titus formed another tag team with Heath Slater known as Slater-Gator. This only lasted six months. In early 2015, The Prime Time Players reunited and would later win the WWE Tag Team Championships.

During the Daniel Bryan retirement celebration on the February 8, 2016 episode of Monday Night Raw, Titus was suspended for 90 days for unprofessional conduct. Titus apparently had a “playful, physical” altercation with Vince McMahon. This suspension was later revised to 60 days.

Titus has done a lot of outreach for non-profit organizations. He was also the winner of MEGA Dad Awards 2015 “Celebrity Dad of the Year.”

We estimate that Titus O’Neil’s net worth is $900,000 (2016).

So how much is $900,000 really?

Despite Titus’s veteran status, $900,000 isn’t really much compared to the other salaries of seasoned WWE employees (or contractors). For instance, Ryback’s net worth is an estimated $1.5 million, while Zack Ryder’s net worth is $1.4 million.

Since Titus is a former tag team champion, $900,000 can buy you 3,000 WWE Tag Team Championship replica belts. $900,000 can also buy you around 65 front-row tickets to WrestleMania.
