The ripple from the lawsuit filed by former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) employee Janel Grant is far from over. Grant had alleged that former WWE bosses Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis had sexually assaulted and trafficked her to attract wrestling talent. Brock Lesnar appears to have been caught up in the web of events.

According to a BBC report, Grant met McMahon while unemployed and dealing with her late parent’s bankruptcy. McMahon allegedly pressured her into a physical relationship with a WWE job promise. Based on the legal filing, Grant eventually worked at WWE’s headquarters in Connecticut between 2019 and 2022. McMahon has denied the allegations.

“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,” said McMahon in a statement on Friday, January 26, 2024.

“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.”

Grant’s lawsuit also detailed a litany of abuses by her former employer. Although no name was mentioned, a section of the document said a “former UFC and WWE Champion” was one of the benefactors of McMahon’s sexual trafficking against her will.

Brock Lesnar appears to be the only WWE and UFC Champion that matches that description. He retired from professional wrestling in the mid-2000s and joined the UFC where he excelled. However, he returned to the WWE in the late 2010s.

However, it appears that the cover has now been updated and Brock Lesnar removed. Brock Lesnar who was one of the bigger images on the cover has been edited out and John Cena was made bigger to fill up the vacuum created by his removal.
