An off-hand comment made during a Monday Night Raw match has led to an apology by the WWE.

Manager Abraham Washington in describing Titus O'Neil said he was "like Kobe Bryant at a hotel in Colorado ... he's unstoppable."

"A.W. made an inappropriate comment and WWE immediately apologized," a WWE official told TMZ. "WWE has taken appropriate action in the matter."

Washington also apologized for being "inappropriate and insensitive."
