Vince McMahon’s trainer issues statement regarding his client’s absence from Wrestlemania 40 and R-Truth responds

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.

As a result of his resignation from WWE, McMahon was not part of this year’s Wrestlemania 40 PLE. McMahon’s trainer Michael A. Monteforte addressed his client’s absence from the event in a post via Instagram

“Vince McMahon was unable to attend his first WrestleMania. How quickly people forget, that without his vision, there would be no Wrestling or WrestleMania. Sadly, when a person is down, the people who they say love you, turn their backs on you.”

“Don’t judge a Man, without getting all the facts. Things aren’t always as they appear.”

Monteforte also defended McMahon in replies to comments on his post…

“You are probably a good dude, but in this particular case, ‘sex trafficking’ was used as a catch phrase… sad that something that serious would be used, for her own gains… if these allegations were true, why isn’t she pressing charges? She knows that her texts & everything she is about would be revealed, so she is going for the $$$ , everything she has intended to do, since setting her sights on Mr. McMahon…”

“I will never feel bad, because I know the truth in real time, You may feel like you are defending an innocent victim, but you should look into her past, all her life she has been a predator for men with $$, & if she was to reveal her reply to those texts, as she conveniently left out, you would see that she is far from innocent and any victim… actually the aggressor… it’s easy to believe, something that you hope would be true… just like the love letter, there is more coming out.”

“she claims many things, but she never reveals her reply to texts , because people would no longer view her as a victim, look into her past, this is how she lives, being a predator on men with $$”

WWE star R-Truth (Ron Killings) commented on Monteforte’s initial post with a simple “1000” message.
