— McMahon and former head of Talent Relations, Laurinaitis, find themselves named in a lawsuit by Janel Grant, a former WWE employee, who alleges she was subjected to “physical and emotional abuse, sexual assault, and trafficking” during her tenure with the company. Grant’s lawsuit provides explicit and graphic details of the alleged assault, including a claim that McMahon offered her to former UFC champion Brock Lesnar for sexual purposes to secure Lesnar’s signing of a new contract.
— Meanwhile, a spokesperson for TKO issued the following statement:
“Mr. McMahon does not control TKO nor does he oversee the day-to-day operations of WWE. While this matter predates our TKO executive team’s tenure at the company, we take Ms. Grant’s horrific allegations very seriously and are addressing this matter internally.”
