WWE Star Titus O'Neil to Sign Copies of his New Book, "There's No Such Thing as a Bad Kid" in New Jersey
World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Titus O’Neil believes there’s no such thing as a bad kid, and he’s more than ready to help put smiles on children’s faces tomorrow at a book signing at the Bookends Bookstore in Ridgewood, New Jersey starting at 6 PM.
O’Neil is the author of “There’s No Such Thing As a Bad Kid: How I Went from Stereotype to Prototype.” In his book, published by ECW Press, the first ever WWE 24/7 Champion writes about how he was confronted with negative words and actions while he was growing up in Delray Beach, Florida. O’Neil’s mother, Daria Bullard, gave birth to him when she was 12. O’Neil believes that his story of triumph will inspire kids from similar backgrounds to overcome tough obstacles and challenges. The book also sparks conversations on how adults can use their good fortune to help disadvantaged kids.
Former four-time world champion Roman Reigns, who announced his leukemia was in remission on February 25, thinks that O’Neil’s moving story is one that is worth telling.
“We all have the power to create our own destiny. Titus is living proof of that, and his story will inspire others to do the same,” says Reigns in a book review.
One of the people who was touched by O’Neil’s journey is ARCG Media co-founder Rob Aurelius. Aurelius tells Music & Mojitos that since meeting O’Neil, “he’s been nothing but a mentor to me and has provided me with so much guidance.” Aurelius also states that because of O’Neil’s leadership, he has helped the WWE community with outreach for Susan G. Komen, the largest breast cancer organization in the United States.
The 42-year-old author uses his WWE platform to raise awareness of issues that tend to get overlooked in the news. In a recent interview with the Tampa Bay Times during a book signing at the Carrollwood Barnes & Noble in Tampa, O’Neil says he remembers his roots, and where he came from. O'Neil hopes readers will use his words to help local communities realize their full potential.
“This book is a culmination of ups and downs in my life. Education and positive mentors gave me an opportunity to be in this position.”
