Brock Lesnar has been implicated in a horrendous lawsuit filed against WWE and Vince McMahon and now his return might be on hold.
Vince McMahon is accused of sexual assault and sex trafficking in a new lawsuit filed by a former WWE employee. Janel Grant was at the centre of the “hush money” scandal that saw McMahon briefly retire from his role in July 2022 but she has now revealed several sickening allegations as part of a lawsuit.
Former WWE executive John Laurinaitis has been named in the lawsuit as has an unnamed former WWE Champion who McMahon is accused of attempting to traffic Grant to as part of negotiations over a new deal.
Although not named in the lawsuit, the Wall Street Journal named that WWE star as Brock Lesnar. Lesnar is alleged to have contacted Grant with unsettling exchanges described between them in the lawsuit.
WWE Could Call Off Brock Lesnar Return
Brock Lesnar had been expected to return at the Royal Rumble on January 27th. However Fightful Select has now reported that sources noted that after it was reiterated to them that Lesnar’s return was still the working plan, Lesnar’s implication in the lawsuit might cause that to change.
Vince McMahon has strongly denied the allegations in a statement made by a spokesperson while TKO has indicated the matter is under internal review.
