WWE News: Update On Lawsuit Against WWE & Titus O’Neil

Published

on

As we previously reported, the WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil and the company are being sued by a cameraman after an incident that took place during filming of the WWE Network show Swerved. Donald Anderson is alleging that he was injured after Paige zapped Titus with a cattle prod, leading to O’Neil becoming “enraged” and kicking the camera out of Anderson’s hand, leaving him injured and unable to work for six months.

Additionally, Anderson is alleging he was placed in an unsafe working environmen and was instructed by WWE to leave the building out of fear that Titus would go after him again. He also alleges that O’Neil has been known for having “significant anger management issues”. In total, Anderson is suing both WWE and Titus for Battery, Assault, Willful Misconduct, Negligence, Gross Negligence, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress and Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress. He is seeking $15,000 in damages.

Today, PWInsider is reporting that Anderson has filed an amended version of the suit in the State of Florida. Previously, WWE claimed they were not under Florida’s jurisdiction, however Anderson is trying to use quotes from both Triple H and WWE Executive John Saboor in which they talk about the importance of the Performance Center in Orlando to fight that.

It should also be noted that Anderson previously filed suit in California, seeking $1.2 million with claims of medical bills that reached in excess $150,000, which is not mentioned at all in the suit in Florida.

EA’s Take: Anybody else smell that? You know, that odor of something that might plop out the rear end of a bull? To me, it sounds like this guy is going way over the top. Perhaps Saul Goodman is his representation because I can totally buy that Titus would kick at a camera after being shocked by a cattle prod, but a lot of this other information screams of an ambulance chaser. So while he may have a case, I just can’t get behind Titus having anger issues or the fact that he’s already sued in California for a ridiculous amount. Just seems fishy.

WWE News: Rumor Killer On Bray Wyatt After Last Night’s Strange Tweets

Published

on

Bray Wyatt
What’s the story with Bray Wyatt after those weird tweets last night?

With last night’s edition of Monday Night RAW opening up with Vince McMahon, along with Stephanie, Shane and Triple H to address the recent unrest by fans with the product lately, one Superstar we haven’t seen for a while had fans talking again with his social media activity.





RAW’s Bray Wyatt, outside of a one-off appearance at Starrcade (check out those results here), has been removed from television since his former tag partner, Matt Hardy, had to go on the sideline with his in-ring future in serious jeopardy (for the latest on that, go here).

After The McMahon’s spoke about bringing changes to WWE programming in the coming weeks, ‘The Eater Of Worlds’ had people talking by saying “goodbye” and that he was going to find his “true calling” (see all of what Bray said here). Of course like anything, this led to a lot of speculation regarding not just Wyatt’s return status, but his future with the company as some interpreted it to mean he was on his way out the door.

However this is not the case, as Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that after Bray created such a stir, he reached out to confirm that Bray isn’t going anywhere. Additionally, it looks like his return is just around the corner, at least at Live Events as he’s currently scheduled for the company’s post-Christmas dates starting December 26th in Madison Square Garden.
