Vince McMahon Resigns Amidst Sex-Trafficking Lawsuit Allegations

Vince McMahon, the head of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), has resigned from his position in the wake of sex-trafficking allegations made by former employee Janel Grant. Grant has accused McMahon and another ex-executive, John Laurinaitis, of sexually assaulting and trafficking her to attract wrestling talent.

In a statement, the 78-year-old McMahon denied the allegations, stating, “I stand by my prior statement that Ms. Grant’s lawsuit is replete with lies, obscene made-up instances that never occurred, and is a vindictive distortion of the truth.” Despite the denial, McMahon has chosen to step down as the executive chairman of TKO, the parent company of WWE.

Expressing his decision to resign, McMahon stated, “Out of respect for the WWE Universe, the extraordinary TKO business and its board members and shareholders, partners and constituents, and all of the employees and Superstars who helped make WWE into the global leader it is today, I have decided to resign from my executive chairmanship and the TKO board of directors, effective immediately.”

In a staff memo obtained by ESPN, WWE president Nick Khan announced McMahon’s resignation, specifying that McMahon “will no longer have a role with TKO Group holdings or WWE.”

The lawsuit filed by Janel Grant alleges that McMahon and Laurinaitis trafficked her to other men “as a sexual pawn to entice world-famous wrestling talent.” The BBC was unable to reach Laurinaitis for comment. Grant, who was unemployed at the time, contends that she was victimized while dealing with her deceased parent’s bankruptcy.
