WWE Hypes Release Of Titus O’Neil’s New Book

In the wake of Titus O’Neil‘s new book being released, WWE has really stepped up their support of his latest venture as he continues to be one of the company’s best representatives – as you can tell by the below statement they released.

“There’s No Such Thing as a Bad Kid: How I went from Stereotype to Prototype” by WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil is out now!

“There’s No Such Thing as a Bad Kid” is an inspirational, inside look at O’Neil’s journey from his turbulent childhood years to his current success as an accomplished WWE Superstar, philanthropist and entertainer.

As a child, O’Neil was repeatedly dismissed as a “bad kid,” and by the time he was a teenager, he had internalized those negative labels. He owes his change of outlook on life to an adult that told him, “there is no such thing as a bad kid.” It was then that he began to believe in himself and in his ability to change his story. O’Neil went on to become a high school All-American, student body Vice President at the University of Florida, and the first college graduate in his immediate family.

“Being in WWE provides me a global platform to impact lives in a positive way, but it doesn’t take a Superstar to make a difference,” said O’Neil. “This is the story of how one conversation changed my life, how I transformed a personal tragedy into my own triumph, and how we can all challenge ourselves and others to do a little bit better.”
