In June 2022, Vince McMahon was thrust into the spotlight for alleged misconduct after it emerged that he had secretly paid $3 million in hush money. This scandal further deepened when McMahon was recently hit with a sex trafficking lawsuit, prompting him to file a motion to compel arbitration. As the legal battle unfolded, Janel Grant’s lawyer has now issued a public statement on the matter.

On January 25th, Janel Grant, a former WWE staff member, filed lawsuit against WWE, John Laurinaitis, and Vince McMahon, alleging sexual assault, emotional abuse, and sex trafficking incidents dating back to March 2019. This lawsuit has brought serious allegations against these prominent figures, casting a shadow over McMahon’s reputation and raising concerns about the workplace environment within WWE.

As previously reported, Vince McMahon has filed a motion to compel arbitration in the Grant v. WWE et al. case, where he denied Grant’s claims of sexual abuse and coercion, among other things.

Josh Pollock took to Twitter and revealed a statement released by Janel Grant’s lawyer Ann Callis. Callis criticized McMahon for distorting the narrative to suit his own agenda, highlighting the emotional toll on her client, who had been taking care of her parents during their final days.


“Vince McMahon has never known a storyline that he doesn’t twist to fit his own shameful narrative. Her father was in in-home hospice during his final days, where Janel continued to care for him around the clock. Prior to his death, she had been caring for her blind, wheelchair-bound mother.”

Callis concluded by condemning McMahon for exploiting Grant’s personal grief in a legal context, stating, “Using the grief of someone who lost both of her parents is an all new level of disgusting.” We’ll have to wait and see what will become of the lawsuit in the end.
