Titus O’Neil took to Twitter to applaud Lars Sullivan for apologizing to him and other members of the WWE roster.
According to O’Neil, Sullivan provided a sincere apology, as well as looked for guidance on how to move forward in being a better person.
There’s no way he was actually fined $100,000. Total publicity stunt on Vince’s part and he only did that for appearances for his sponsors
