    Nice reaction…swerving into oncoming traffic. Typical LA driver.

  • it was a setup

    Sounds like someone in the front knew who HE was & just slammed on their brake to milk some Cash off him..

    • Richard Castillo

      very likely!

    • Thomas J. Coleman

      Could be, or saw the $ilver Cadillac. All possibilities should be investigated. Hope he wasn’t hurt too bad but I must say his “profile” looks pretty good in the pic!

      • Lenny

        A former WCW champion would not engage in such activities.

  • Chris

    Following too close. It’s the worst of all the bad habits Southern California drivers have. If you’re so close you wouldn’t be able to stop in time, back off; if you hit the car in front of you, it’s your fault.


    If he was driving a snow plow he would have never had to swerve!!!

    they don’t give you the whole story. Was there drinking or drugs involved before he took to the road? Curious minds want to know.

    I believe in the UK or somewhere else, a company’s been making money getting customers to buy car cams because drivers are scamming insurances and other people by having an accomplice drive erratically making the scammer slam their brakes and causing the person behind them to rear-end them. “crash for cash” symptom that led to the government putting in a Fraud Bureau to check things out.
