Spokesperson for Janel Grant addresses report that John Cena and The Rock still have contact with Vince McMahon

It was reported by The Wall Street Journal in January of 2024 that Janel Grant, a former WWE employee, filed a lawsuit against WWE, Vince McMahon, and John Laurinaitis in a Connecticut federal court. McMahon was accused of sex trafficking in the complaint.

A report was published by NBCNews.com on Wednesday in regards to what McMahon has been doing in his personal life since resigning from WWE/TKO. The article mentioned that McMahon has remained in contact with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena. A spokesperson for Janel Grant responded to the matter…

“It’s shameful that Mr. Johnson and Mr. Cena would associate themselves with an individual with decades of allegations just like Janel’s. Behind-the-scenes support is louder than any public statement ever could be.”

In February of 2024, Cena was asked about his friendship with McMahon. Cena told APNews.com in March of 2023 that there’s no way I can go on record and say I don’t love Vince McMahon.”

Grant’s attorney, Ann Callis, also confirmed to NBC that there have been no settlement discussions…

“Vince McMahon raped, trafficked and physically assaulted Janel Grant as part of his decades-long normalization of treating women within the WWE as objects. He might have thought that Janel would just walk away, but that wishful thinking couldn’t be further from the case. Every day we are focused on adding to our mountain of evidence, speaking with other victims, hiring renowned experts on sex trafficking/coercive control and preparing to vociferously litigate this case.”
