Titus O’Neil was not in the best mood immediately following his infamous slide at Greatest Royal Rumble … so he took out his frustration on Daniel Bryan‘s face.
During an interview with “Inside the Ropes,” Bryan recalled not knowing what had happened during O’Neil’s entrance. The next thing he knew, however, Titus was in the ring clobbering him.
“Titus slides into the ring and punches me in the face like really hard,” Bryan said. “He’s got these big, huge hands and it’s like ‘boom.’ I’m like ‘woah, what happened?’ I was like enraged and I was going to kick him in the face.”
Before he was able to deliver a receipt, Bryan realized what happened
“I glance up and you see the tron and they played it like twelve times in a row of him tripping, falling and sliding, under the ring,” Bryan recalled. “I’m like ‘you know what? I understand. I’m going to go over here. I’m going to leave him be.”
Bryan is able to laugh it off now, but let’s at least hope Titus paid him back with one of those slick “Rumble, Stumble, or Slide” shirts.
