A WWE camera operator has filed a $1.2 million lawsuit against Titus O’Neil after the WWE Superstar allegedly attacked him when a prank for the WWE Network show Swerved went awry.
In his lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ Sports, Donald Anderson says he was shooting on May 18, 2015, when O’Neil was selected as a target for an electric shock prank.
It was all supposed to be good fun, but when O’Neil got zapped, the WWE Superstar 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.”
This prank involved Paige, who in the Swerved season one finale, was filmed shocking fellow Superstars backstage at a WWE event with a cattle prod. At the end of this clip, she is shown shocking O’Neil.
