WATCH: Former Florida football star trips, falls in hilarious WWE moment

If you have been a long-time reader of this website, you know we do our best to chronicle the journey of former Florida Gators defensive lineman Thaddeus Bullard, who has entered the second phase of his career as WWE superstar Titus O’Neil.

Though O’Neil is not one of WWE’s signature names, he has become a beacon for the company and is one of the most frontward-facing superstars when it comes to public relations, charitable endeavors, etc. He is also exceedingly entertaining with his “Titus Worldwide” on-screen group, of which he is the leader.

O’Neil made headlines for a different reason on Friday as, for the second time in his WWE career, he tripped near ringside. Except this time, O’Neil’s fall resulted in a hilarious moment that is easily one of the greatest in the history of WWE and the company’s signature Royal Rumble match.

See for yourself.

Competing at WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, O’Neil was an entrant in the signature match; unfortunately, on his way to the ring, his toe hit the rubber ringside mat, throwing his body forward. Whether by luck or sheer happenstance, O’Neil slid through the ring apron.

What many are not noting is how lucky O’Neil is that this trip occurred on this particular pay-per-view, one that featured a steel cage match and therefore a different ring setup. In most circumstances, WWE has a hard LED board on that side of the ring, which would have been disastrous had O’Neil been flung into that head-first.

Because he was OK — immediately removing himself from under the ring and entering the match — this is something we can laugh about. O’Neil was also an incredibly good sport about the incident, which occurred just a couple days before his 41st birthday. Check out his reaction below.
