On Tanked on the Animal Planet channel on Friday night on its 100th show and new season, they built a fish aquarium for suspended World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Titus O’Neil. Wayde King and Brett Raymer, the stars of the show, went to the WWE Performance Center at the beginning of the show.
Matt Bloom — whose known to WWE fans as A-Train and Tensai, now a trainer at the Performance Center — talked about the center that Triple H created on the show. Then, O’Neil made Wayde and Brett earn it, he said, by going through with a WWE entrance at the Center.
He didn’t like their entrance at first and said they needed to be the fireworks after the duo asked for fireworks. The Tanked crew did the PrimeTime Players sway before getting into the ring — and O’Neil liked their entrance the second-time around.
He taught Wayde and Brett about the Gator stomp that can be seen at all Florida Gators, especially on TV during football season at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium — also known as “The Swamp” — during football games or Stephen C. O’Connell Center during basketball games.
O’Neil took offense when the Tanked crew had a different idea for his tank at first. He said their idea may work — after listening to what they had in mind. His Gator-themed tank went in the reception area of his company.
He even stopped by the shop when WWE was hosting an event in Las Vegas — where Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM), which is the company that’s showcased on Tanked. At first, he didn’t like the look of the Gator that they were using.
“If this is going to be a Florida Gator, it needs to look like one,” he said as the guy tried to make the Gator logo. He also said, “It’s great to be a Florida Gator.”
When they were walking around the shop, Brett took O’Neil by the guy, who was feeding the fish and eels. He said he didn’t want to impede on the guy — and he said he needed his fingers, but said, “Gators don’t get scared.”
Agnes Wilczynski and Heather King — the wife of Wayde and Brett’s sister — joined O’Neil in Los Angeles at Sea Dwelling Creatures to pick out his fish for the fish tank. After liking one fish, he said, “75 more to go.”
At first, ATM had a problem with his tank — but in the end, O’Neil loved it. He even admitted he was nervous at first.
He got a 375 gallon tank with 35 fish in it. He even named one fish in the fish tank, ‘Titus.’ Wayde and Brett even got a fish to represent WWE in the tank with its black and white colors.
“This tank is important to me because it represents the University of Florida (where he went to college) and me as a person,” he said on the show.
