Vince McMahon has found himself in a highly controversial situation due to sexual trafficking lawsuit filed against him by former WWE employee Janel Grant. This legal battle has not only cast a shadow over his reputation but has also raised questions about his future with WWE.
Janel Grant has accused McMahon of engaging in sexual misconduct, alleging that he shared explicit content without her consent, involving WWE personnel, undisclosed executives, and wrestling stars. In response to these allegations, Vince McMahon formally stepped down from his positions within WWE and TKO Holdings, vehemently denying the claims and vowing to fight them in court.
According to Fightful Select’s Q&A Backstage report, talent within WWE has been informed that Vince McMahon’s association with the company is effectively over, with no foreseeable path for his return.
While there haven’t been any official talent-wide or company meetings addressing the situation, it seems that higher-ups within WWE are eager to distance themselves from McMahon and move forward without him.
Some individuals within the talent roster have speculated that McMahon may attempt to work his way back into the company in some capacity, but it has been emphasized to them that Vince McMahon is no longer part of WWE’s future plans.
Furthermore, WWE is taking steps to remove Vince McMahon from the WWE 2K24 video game, indicating a clear effort to disassociate itself from his image.
As this legal battle unfolds, it remains uncertain what the ultimate outcome will be for Vince McMahon. However, it appears increasingly unlikely that he will ever return to WWE, given the gravity of the allegations and the company’s apparent determination to move on without him.
