The recipient of the Warrior Award for the 2021 WWE Corridor of Fame class can be Titus O’Neil.
The information was reported earlier this week, however WWE has but to substantiate it. Many individuals felt that former WWE star Shad Gaspard ought to get the award after he handed away on the age of 39 final 12 months throughout a tragic incident at Venice Seaside whereas together with his son. Gaspard insisted on lifeguards taking his son earlier than him and he was taken away by the water.
Fightful Choose reported at the moment the explanation for O’Neil’s induction, versus Gaspard, was as a result of WWE planning to induct O’Neil final 12 months, however that acquired pushed again because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Clearly, these plans have been so as earlier than Gaspard’s dying
It was added, “Titus’ induction was not a sleight on Gaspard. O’Neill’s connection to the Tampa group performed an enormous position within the timing of the previous two years.”
The argument could possibly be made that WWE ought to’ve had two Warrior Award recipients as there can be two courses for the traditional Corridor of Fame – 2020 and 2021. Nevertheless, that gained’t be the case.
The ceremony takes place on April sixth as it would air on Peacock.
