Vince McMahon Sued By Ex-WWE Employee Who Claims He Sex Trafficked Her At Work
Vince McMahon, co-founder of WWE and Executive Chairman of TKO, has resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct. The 78-year-old stepped down after a lawsuit was filed by Janel Grant, a former WWE employee, accusing McMahon of forcing her into a sexual relationship to maintain her job. The lawsuit, filed in Connecticut, also implicates WWE and John Laurinaitis. McMahon denies the claims, describing them as baseless and intends to vigorously defend himself.
This isn’t McMahon’s first encounter with such accusations. He resigned as WWE’s CEO in 2022 during a similar investigation but later returned. Grant, who signed a nondisclosure agreement with McMahon in 2022, seeks to void it and claims $3 million in damages. The lawsuit also implicates a former UFC heavyweight champion.
McMahon’s resignation comes at a critical time for TKO, a company formed from the merger of UFC and WWE. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently joined TKO’s Board of Directors, while WWE secured a $5 billion deal with Netflix. McMahon’s departure marks another chapter in the wrestling mogul’s storied career, which revolutionized the industry but now faces serious legal challenges.
