about Thaddeus

Thaddeus M. Bullard is an accomplished athlete, philanthropist and entertainer as WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil, who has a heart for youth and the community.  He is a fixture with the WWE regularly appearing on “Monday Night RAW,” “Smackdown,” “Wrestlemania,” and other marquis events around the world. 

Out of the ring he is known for his commitment to philanthropic activities. He has helped to raise millions for various charities, secure scholarships for student athletes, and regularly mentor at risk youth. His annual Joy of Giving holiday event in Tampa gives 10,000 underprivileged kids gifts and services to families in need. 

   

His most important priority is as a father and role model to his children, T.J. (13) and Titus (11), who inspire him to provide opportunities he didn’t have growing up. As an underperforming child, he was sent to the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches which changed the course of his life. His passion to help others succeed is derived from the early seed planted at the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches where many invested in him when “they had nothing to gain in return.”

With their support he transformed into an All-American football player, excellent student, and community member. He played football at the University of Florida and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in sociology and a Master's in higher education.

In 2018, he was recognized for community contributions by the Dr. Martin Luther King Parade Foundation with the “Drum Major for Justice” and “Rev Hosea Williams” award from the NAACP Hillsborough County Branch for his philanthropic spirit.

Bullard is a proud member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity, the president of Embracing Legacy Foundation, member of Revealing Truth Ministries, and honorary Deputy for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

How Can I Not?

 

Thaddeus Bullard is seen on television weekly by millions. As WWE Superstar Titus O'Neil, he presents an image of success, living a "worldwide" lifestyle. The type of life most of us can only imagine.

 

But Thaddeus didn't start with success as a likely outcome. His mother had him at 12 years old. The product of rape, he was assumed to be headed for a life of failure as just another "bad kid." But, as a young boy, a mentor uttered eight words that changed his life forever:

 

"I love you, and I believe in you."

 

In his inspiring program, Thaddeus shares how this one sentence changed his trajectory and how he has used it to fuel his desire to do good in the world. Despite his hectic schedule, Thaddeus deliberately makes time to personally contribute to bettering the lives of others. 

 

"How can I not?" he asks.

 

Audiences will leave wondering, "How can I not?"

Thaddeus is a compelling speaker for those events (convocations, conferences, new student orientation, etc.) needing an inspiring message.
