In a recent development that has sent ripples through the wrestling community, Vince McMahon, the former CEO of WWE, faces serious allegations of sex trafficking.

These allegations stem from a lawsuit filed by Janel Grant, a former employee at WWE’s headquarters. Grant’s lawsuit accuses McMahon of exploiting her and trafficking her to other individuals within the company.

The lawsuit, which has garnered significant media attention, alleges that McMahon enticed Grant with promises of career advancement, only to subject her to exploitation.

Grant, who had previously signed a nondisclosure agreement in 2022, is now seeking to invalidate this agreement and is pursuing unspecified financial damages.

This comes after McMahon allegedly ceased making payments under their prior agreement.
