WWE Star & former WWE Tag-Team Champion, Titus O'Neil, continues to add to his reputation of being one of the more charitable and respectable talents on the roster. During a recent interview with the Tampa Bay Times, O'Neil revealed that along with Alicia McDowell; the two have raised enough money for 500 children to attend a screening of Marvel's 'Black Panther' movie which hits theaters on February 16th. The former Tag-Team champ, hailing from the Tampa area himself, has set his sights on bettering his community.

O'Neil has teamed up with Alicia McDowell as the two have exceeded the initial goal of $2500. Here's what the leader of 'Titus Worldwide' had to say to the Tampa Bay Times regarding the topic:

Titus O'Neil: "I'm 40 years old and I've never seen a Marvel character that looked like me, as an African-American male. This will be the first time I've seen a superhero on screen that looks like me and I want kids to not only be able to see superheroes on the screen, but also to view themselves as superheroes. If they see that on screen, then maybe they can be the next doctor or lawyer or president, whatever they can be. This could be a great teaching moment if we can get them into theaters."

 

Alicia McDowell and Titus are looking to continue to raise money so that more children can see a screening of the film. You can click here to check out their GoFundMe.
