WWE found itself embroiled in scandal when Vince McMahon, alongside other key figures, was implicated in a sex trafficking lawsuit, adding fuel to an already intense controversy. This legal battle gained traction when Janel Grant, a former WWE staff member, filed lawsuit on January 25th, accusing WWE, John Laurinaitis, and McMahon of sexual assault, emotional abuse, and sex trafficking incidents dating back to March 2019. These allegations cast a dark cloud over McMahon’s reputation and prompted scrutiny of the workplace culture within WWE.

In response to the lawsuit, McMahon promptly stepped down from his role in TKO Holdings, a move that underscored the seriousness of the allegations and their potential impact. Despite McMahon’s absence, WWE has forged ahead, seemingly unfazed by the controversy surrounding its former leader.

During a discussion on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer observed that within WWE, there appears to be a collective indifference towards McMahon’s involvement, with the focus shifting towards their ongoing success. Sellout crowds and robust business operations have taken precedence over any lingering concerns about McMahon’s role within the company.

“It’s almost like people don’t care. Even WWE, they talk to me and they have moved on and you know, they are doing sellouts every night.”


Meanwhile, McMahon has taken more assertive stance in addressing the Janel Grant lawsuit, indicating a willingness to vigorously defend himself. Nevertheless, WWE remains steadfast in its pursuit of success, prioritizing its bottom line above all else.

Given the magnitude of McMahon’s influence within WWE, it may come as a surprise to some that the company has seemingly moved on from him so swiftly. What are your thoughts on WWE’s apparent detachment from Vince McMahon? Share your opinions in the comments below!
