WWE star and company ambassador Titus O’Neil was honored by the NHL during last night’s Tampa Bay Lightning Stanley Cup Qualifiers opener, where the league recognized O’Neil as a community hero as apart of their #WeSkateForBlackLives campaign. The former tag champion would later take to Twitter and write, “I’m Humbled and Honored that I was recognized tonight as a Community Hero by the @NHLduring the #Stanleycupqualifiers opener! This was done in conjunction with their support #WeSkateForBlackLives campaign.”
