A WWE employee believes the latest Vince McMahon allegations are just the tip of the iceberg.
On January 25th, a lawsuit alleging Vince McMahon’s involvement in sex trafficking and sexual assault was made public. The suit also features claims against John Laurinaitis, while a former UFC Heavyweight Champion and WWE star is referenced, believed to be Brock Lesnar.
Since the allegations came to light, McMahon has resigned from the TKO Board of Directors, while a lawyer for John Laurinaitis has claimed that he’s also a victim.
Meanwhile, a new report from Fightful Select has offered more details on the current situation and what comes next, including claims from long-time employees that they expect McMahon to be hit with criminal charges. These sources stated, “If the feds raided Vince and got his phone, they’ll almost surely find something.”
A long-time employee is quoted as saying that they don’t believe the current allegations are even the “worst of it,” citing bigger settlements, while other potential victims have been identified.
It’s believed that the TKO Group became “very aware of the mess” after the merger was complete, and would have handled the rollout very differently had they known the full extent of the situation at the time. However, they were aware of the allegations by the time of the Netflix deal for Monday Night Raw.
Incredibly, there are talents who believe McMahon is delusional enough to try and return to the company as he did previously in 2023. Despite this, the report adds that “WWE is largely attempting to disassociate.”
Vince McMahon Under Federal Investigation
It’s been reported that Vince McMahon is under a federal investigation relating to the allegations, but continues to deny any wrongdoing.
Back in the summer of 2023, Vince McMahon was served with a grand jury subpoena for “documents related to any allegation of “rape, sex trafficking, sexual assault, commercial sex transaction, harassment or discrimination” against current or former WWE employees.”
