WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil has filed a counter-suit against the cameraman who sued him back in 2015, David Anderson.
Anderson filed the lawsuit in 2015 after an incident that took place on the WWE Network show “Swerved.” It appears that former WWE Divas Champion and current General Manager of SmackDown Live Paige was the root of all cause. Paige pranked O’Neil by shocking him with an electro shock stick, and Titus kicked the camera out of Anderson’s hand in frustration. The kick allegedly injured Anderson’s hand and he sued for $15,000 in damages.
PWInsider currently reports that O’Neil filed a counter-suit against Anderson on June 19, 2018 and is also seeking $15,000 in damages. O’Neil’s suit accuses Anderson of conspiracy to commit battery, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and many more.
What’s interesting about O’Neil’s counter-suit is that he claims he “acted out of necessity to prevent being assaulted.” It was also noted that an electro shock stick wasn’t on the list of approved pranks given by then-WWE Vice President of Development, Brian Terwillinger. It was slated that the prank was “unbeknownst to WWE.”
