Janel Grant’s attorney has received a “barrage” of messages in response to the former WWE employee’s allegations against Vince McMahon.
On January 25th a lawsuit filed by former WWE employee Janel Grant went public featuring several claims of sex trafficking and sexual assault involving Vince McMahon. After the allegations surfaced, McMahon resigned from his seat on the TKO Group Board of Directors, although he’s adamantly denied any wrongdoing.
On February 1st, Grant’s attorney, Ann Callis appeared on Morning in America where she discussed the allegations. Callis said that McMahon oversaw a “culture of corruption” while in charge of WWE.
“It’s been a long process, and she (Grant) wants to speak out for any other victims and eradicate this culture of corruption that has permeated every cell of the WWE,”
The attorney added that her office has been bombarded by people wanting to come forward.
“My office and my inbox have had a barrage of people wanting to come forward to attest about this culture of corruption and also possible victims,” she said. “We are just beginning now to wade through all this, but we’re frankly overwhelmed.”
Allegations Against Vince McMahon Continue To Mount
The lawsuit is the latest in a long line of allegations that saw Vince McMahon “retire” back in July 2022.
It was alleged that McMahon had a number of affairs, and paid several women a total of well over $10 million to suppress them. There were also claims that he coerced one woman into giving him oral sex.
After McMahon forced his way back onto WWE’s Board of Directors in January 2023, more allegations came to light, and it was claimed he assaulted a spa manager at a resort in 2011. McMahon also reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with former referee Rita Chatterton, who claimed she had been assaulted back in 1986.
In 1992, Chatterton came forward with her story claiming that McMahon made unwanted sexual advances towards her, and after she turned him down, he raped her.
