titus o'neilVince McMahon and Triple H were said to be very happy with Titus O'Neil's character development on Raw tonight.

A member of the WWE writing staff told WrestleZone this evening that Titus has been pitching "his heart out" to turn heel on Darren Young, and finally "pleaded with Vince McMahon" for a singles run as a heel.

Vince apparently told the writers "Titus O'Neil gets an opportunity, sink or swim" and was happy with Titus' growth as a character in his interview with Renee Young on Raw tonight.

For those who missed Raw tonight, Titus cut another promo during a backstage interview segment with Renee Young, during which he asked Young if she knew how to spell champion, and when she tried to spell it, he corrected her an noted it's spelled "T-i-t-u-s."
