Titus O'Neil Files Counter Lawsuit Against Camera Man; Alleged He Was Assaulted During Swerved Sketch

Titus O'Neil claims WWE had no idea he would be shocked. 

During a taping of the WWE Network show Swerved, Titus O'Neil was shocked by a "cattle prod" and a camera man ended up injured. The camera operator Donald Anderson filed a lawsuit against WWE and O'Neil last year originally for over one million dollars but has since been lowered to $15,000. He alleged that O'Neil kicked him, injured his hand and wrist, and caused him to miss six months of work.

According to PWInsider, O'Neil filed a counter suit in June which argues a couple key factors in Anderson's claims. O'Neil's suit alleges that WWE had no hand in that sketch from Swerve and even provided paper work to show it was not included on a list of sketches that had to be approved by WWE. O'Neil is counter suing for $15,000.

In the counter lawsuit, O'Neil refers to the incident as negligence and an assault on him. The lawsuit alleges Anderson was a conspirator in the assault of O'Neil. He reportedly reserved the right to sue the production company Uranus Productions in the future. 

There is a mediation session arranged in January to attempt to settle the two lawsuits.
