Pwinsider is reporting that the lawsuit brought against WWE and Thaddeus “Titus O’Neil” Bullard by cameraman Donald Anderson, is seeking $15,000 in damages. Andersin alleged he was injured by Bullard during the WWE Network show Swerved. Anderson had previously attempted to file the lawsuit in the State of California, where he resides, but Bullard was successful in lobbying for the case to be transferred to the Sunshine State.

PWInsider says that according to the lawsuit, “Anderson was filming a segment in May 2015 that featured WWE talent Paige shocking Bullard with an electric shock stick.  The complaint alleges that Bullard became enraged over it and went after Anderson in response, running up to him and kicking a video camera out of his hand.  The assault allegedly lead to injuries on Anderson’s hand, wrist and fingers to the point he could not work for six months.   In the lawsuit, Anderson claimed the episode has been viewed over 2,700,000 times and counting.”

 

The lawsuit also alleges that Bullard “was known by WWE as possessing significant anger management issues.”

Anderson is suing both Bullard and WWE for Battery, Assault, Willful Misconduct, Negligence, Gross Negligence, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress and Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress. Anderson claims that he has faced “bodily injury, pain and suffering, mental anguish, extreme emotional distress, disfigurement, medical expenses, physical handicap, loss of income, loss of the capacity for enjoyment of life and loss of ability to earn money.”

Bullard was signed to a developmental deal with WWE in 2009 and was called up to the main roster in 2012.  Bullard has been heavily involved in countless community outreach and charity programs as part of his association with WWE.

WWE filed a motion requesting an extension to respond on 4/20, which was granted.  WWE has until 4/27 to respond.

Impact News: Impact Wrestling Explains Why They Released Alberto El Patron

Published

on

Five years ago, Alberto El Patron formerly known as Alberto Del Rio left WWE and was finding a wave of momentum. Fast forward to 2018 and he has had nothing but bad news and drama linked to him. It’s possible that no United States based wrestling promotion will ever sign him again.

Patron was scheduled to wrestle in the co-branded wrestling event Impact vs Lucha on WrestleMania weekend but ended up no showing the event. Due to him not showing up Impact decided to terminate his contract. That also led to a change in the main event of Redemption.

Scott D’Amore, one third of the Impact Wrestling Excutive Committee recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about the release of El Patron. Scott stated that instead of focusing on all the bad Impact was going to focus on the wrestlers who actually showed up for the event.

Here is a quote from D’Amore’s interview:

“It was obviously an unfortunate situation,” said D’Amore. “When Alberto failed to show up to the event, we made our decision on a new main event for the show. It was important for us to give our fans, in a capacity crowd at the Sugar Mill in New Orleans, a great event, and we did not want them to focus on someone who wasn’t there. We wanted them to focus on the match we were giving.”

From the business side of things this was the best decision that Impact could’ve made since for the past few weeks they have been riding a wave of momentum. Their viewership has been up and they have been getting a lot of praise recently so in the end they chose to focus on the good instead of the bad.
