A former WWE wrestler wants the company to take action against Vince McMahon and others who knew about his latest scandal.
The name of Vince McMahon is in the news yet again after a scandalous lawsuit has come out by former WWE employee Janel Grant. According to Grant, McMahon sexually assaulted her and used her for sex trafficking with his friends and others who work for WWE.
After a few years of working for McMahon, Grant signed an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) that would pay Grant millions of dollars to keep quiet. However, McMahon stopped paying Grant the money she was owed as part of the deal, so Grant and her lawyers made their relationship public.
Vince McMahon responded to Grant’s claims by saying that he would “vigorously defend himself” in a statement released to the press.
Following the news of Grant’s lawsuit against McMahon, former WWE superstar Lance Storm spoke on Wrestling Observer Live about how WWE had to get rid of anybody who knew about this.
“I was one of the few that said he needed to be gone when the story first broke (in 2022) and I was outspoken against him being allowed back into the office, being allowed back at shows when he came back and when he came back I stopped watching the product and only recently started seeing the shows out of necessity.”
“When you were reading the account of how this started, that’s classic sexual predator stuff. Finding someone down on their luck and start grooming them and bending them to your will. Not only should he be booted off the board, take his keys to the office away, bar him from going to shows, and I think there needs to be a legitimate cleaning house of anyone who covered anything up, who knew about this.”
“This is absolutely disgustingly horrible and he needs to be gone and done. I hope there are criminal charges brought if any of this is even remotely true which with there being so many NDAs and a long list of things, I can’t fathom how it isn’t.”
WWE Loses Key Sponsor For Royal Rumble
The lawsuit brought on by Grant towards McMahon was reported by the Wall Street Journal just two days before the WWE Royal Rumble in Tampa on Saturday, January 27th.
It has been revealed that one of the biggest sponsors at the Royal Rumble was going to be Slim Jim, but a report has indicated that they don’t want to sponsor the event, presumably because of these Vince McMahon allegations. Vince is no longer running WWE on a day to day basis, but he remains the Executive Chairman of the company and part of the TKO Group’s Board of Directors as well.
