Controversial Ex-WWE Figure Says Vince McMahon “BS” Stretches Back To 1980s

Vince McMahon

A former WWE referee has called for justice as the Vince McMahon sex trafficking scandal continues.

The wrestling world is still reeling after former WWE employee Janel Grant filed a lawsuit against Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis, and the sports entertainment giant. In the suit, McMahon is accused of sexual assault and sex trafficking, while Laurinaitis stands accused of sexual assault.

The revelations have shone a light on further allegations and what some claim has been a toxic culture within WWE for decades.

Referee Earl Hebner worked with WWE from 1988 until 2005, and he’s suggested there will be more allegations that come to the surface.

During a K&S WrestleFest signing, Hebner said the allegations go all the way back to the 1980s while hoping that justice is served for those involved.

“The only thing I can say is, I hope justice is served. Between Vince and John, they are in a heap of trouble. I think Johnny is trying to jump ship on Vince now. They’re both in this thing together. Vince knows what he was doing, Johnny knew about what he was doing, or Johnny knew what he was doing. That’s all I can say. I can say more and really bury them, but I’m just going to wait and let justice be served.

My next book, I’m going to bring everything to that. You’re thinking the next book is going to be a jury book. I’m going to let it all out,” he said. “[Allegations] go back as far as 88 (1988) because that’s when I worked there. The BS was going on then, and it’s still going on now, probably.”

Bret Hart Blasts Vince McMahon

Since the allegations against McMahon, John Laurinaitis, and WWE have become public, none of the accused have found much if any public support.

Bret Hart recently commented that he’s lost all respect for his former boss. During a recent interview, Hart described McMahon as “creepy” and admitted he was embarrassed about how he used to look up to him.

Meanwhile, Jake Roberts said the incidents outlined in the lawsuit were “disgusting,” although he admitted he wasn’t totally surprised to read them.
