Backstage Talent Reaction To Vince McMahon’s Sex Trafficking Lawsuit



Vince McMahon recently resigned from his position at TKO Group after a lawsuit from former WWE employee Janel Grant accused him of sex trafficking, sexual assault, and more. WWE and John Laurinaitis are also named as defendants in the lawsuit.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has shared some details on the backstage reaction to the news, including how some felt about McMahon.

One Superstar called reading the lawsuit “emotionally scarring,” noting that it was devastating to talent who had previously tried to obtain McMahon’s “love and approval,” only to learn that they worked for someone who “didn’t care about their talents.”

The Superstar stated, Vince made so many of us feel small and awful. We all had to obey his abuse in order to keep our jobs.

It is believed that the news affected the women negatively backstage, and things could get worse as more women come forward.

One main roster Superstar stated that no one from WWE management has spoken to them about the matter other than to say McMahon won’t be returning.

The wrestlers were also told “how successful the Royal Rumble was and how big the new Netflix deal is.”
