Titus O’Neil, a current WWE Raw brand superstar, is being sued by a cameraman that worked on the WWE Network show “Swerved” according to TMZ today.
Here are the details from TMZ:
Donald Anderson says he was hired to work on the WWE Network show “Swerved” — which features WWE superstars getting punked by other wrestlers and staffers.
In his lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ Sports, Anderson says he was shooting on May 18, 2015 when Titus was selected as a target for an electric shock prank.
It was all supposed to be good fun, but when Titus got zapped, the WWE superstar lost his mind — and kicked the camera out of Anderson’s hand.
Anderson says he was seriously injured during the incident — suffering major damage to his hand, fingers and wrist. He says he was told to leave the premises immediately “in fear of the possibility of further attacks by Titus.”
It was also reported that Anderson is seeking $1.2 million in damages. TMZ claims they reached out to O’Neil for a comment, but haven’t heard back yet.
On the first season of Swerved, WWE Superstars were the subjects of the pranks. On the second season, it was the WWE Superstars playing pranks on fans and regular people. There is no word on if there will be a third season.
Here’s a clip from the electric shock prank in question.
