WWE Corporate Officers Named In Vince McMahon Sex Trafficking Lawsuit

Vince McMahon

A new report has named WWE executives Nick Khan and Brad Blum in the Vince McMahon sex trafficking lawsuit.

It was January 25th when a lawsuit was made public against former WWE Executive Chairman Vince McMahon alleging sex trafficking and sexual assault by former WWE employee Janel Grant.

That lawsuit led to Vince McMahon leaving his position on the TKO Group Board of Directors, although he denies any wrongdoing. In addition to the lawsuit, it was reported by the Wall Street Journal that McMahon is being investigated by federal authorities. There are people close to that investigation who noted that prosecutors in New York have contacted women who have accused McMahon of sexual assault.

In the lawsuit filed by Janel Grant against Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis and WWE about her time working for the company, there were references to unnamed Corporate Officers No. 1 and No. 2 who work for WWE.

There is a report from Front Office Sports by Tim Marchman, John Pollock and Brandon Thurston that WWE President Nick Khan and COO Brad Blum are the men identified as Corporate Officers No. 1 and No. 2 in a sex trafficking lawsuit filed by Grant against McMahon.

Janel Grant’s lawyer Ann Callis confirmed those names are right: “I can confirm that these names are correct.”

As noted by Front Office Sports, Khan & Blum were instrumental to a scheme in the plaintiff, Janel Grant, was employed “in a completely undefined role, except for the understanding that she remain a sexual slave to be used and trafficked by McMahon within the WWE.”

The duo of Khan and Blum are not being accused of sexual misconduct or violence. However, the suit claimed that those two men and others facilitated and played a part in covering up exploitation in ways that make WWE liable under federal anti-trafficking law.

While McMahon has denied wrongdoing, Laurinaitis is blaming McMahon and saying he’s a victim too.

The lawsuit referenced Corporate Officer No. 3 who was revealed to be Vince’s daughter Stephanie McMahon. After Vince retired as CEO/Chairman in July 2022, Stephanie took over as WWE’s Chairwoman, but she left the company when her father returned in January 2023.

There is also a reference to Corporate Officer #4 in the lawsuit by Janel Grant and it was revealed to be Brian Nurse, who was WWE’s former Senior Vice President, general counsel and secretary.

WWE Responds To Information In Vince McMahon Sex-Trafficking Lawsuit

In a statement from WWE issued to Front Office Sports, the company stated that Khan and Blum had no prior knowledge of the lawsuit before it was fined and had no knowledge of abuse.

“WWE takes Ms. Grant’s allegations very seriously and has no tolerance for any physical abuse or unwanted physical contact. Neither Nick Khan nor Brad Blum, prior to the lawsuit being filed on January 25, 2024, were aware of any allegation by Ms. Grant that she was the victim of abuse or unwanted physical contact; nor does the complaint allege that either had knowledge of such.”

Regarding Vince McMahon’s current involvement with WWE, TKO President Mark Shapiro made it clear that Vince McMahon won’t be back in the company in any way.
