Roman Reigns & Titus O’Neil Talk About Their Troubled Childhoods



roman-reigns3

WWE Superstars Roman Reigns and Titus O’Neill recently spoke with the Tampa Tribune about their involvement in WWE’s partnership with the Ad Campaign for public service announcements on the importance of being a father.

O’Neill said that he was conceived when his grandmother’s boyfriend raped his then 11-year-old mother. His mother was pushed to have an abortion but refused. “I love my mom,” O’Neill said. “We’re close. She did a lot for me.”

Reigns spoke about his troubled childhood as well, noting that he got in a lot of fights as a kid and was set straight when he spent five years at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch. “I think a lot of it was because I didn’t have that strong male role model in my life,” he said. “That’s important. So at an early age I knew if I had children that I would be in my kids’ life no matter what so they never had to deal with any of the issues I had to as a youth.”
