Janel Grant hopes ‘any doors of secrecy’ at WWE ‘have been blown off’ by her bombshell sex trafficking law suit against Vince McMahon – in which she claims 78-year-old defecated on her head in a threesome
The former WWE employee who accused Vince McMahon of sex-trafficking and claimed the 78-year-old billionaire defecated on her head during a threesome admits she ‘hopes any doors of secrecy have been blown off their hinges’ by her lawsuit.
Janel Grant, who previously agreed to a $3 million settlement in exchange for signing a nondisclosure agreement in 2022, filed a new lawsuit this week against McMahon, the WWE and a former executive.
In that filing, obtained by DailyMail.com, Grant claims that McMahon – who denies the allegations – stopped making payments after the initial $1 million installment, and she is now trying to void that agreement.
Furthermore, Grant claims she suffered bruising and bleeding after McMahon forcibly penetrated her with sex toys, which he named after his wrestlers.
She also claims that McMahon and another WWE executive locked her in a room at WWE’s Stamford, Connecticut headquarters in June 2021 and took turns sexually assaulting her during the workday.

The married McMahon is also accused of trading Grant to other men and sharing nude photos of the claimant. Grant is seeking unspecified damages.
She said in a statement issued by her St. Louis-based lawyer, Ann Callis, was quoted as saying that she ‘hopes any doors of secrecy have been blown off their hinges’.
It added: ‘She hopes that those at the company past and present who are afraid to speak out about harm are a thing of the past. She wishes them all peace.’
McMahon responded to the claims via a spokesperson, who said the 78-year-old intends to fight to clear his name.
“This lawsuit is full of lies, obscene fabrications that never happened, and a vindictive distortion of the truth,” a McMahon spokesman said Thursday. “He will defend himself vigorously.”
WWE previously described McMahon’s sexual relationship with Grant as “consensual” in a 2022 statement.
The lawsuit comes as McMahon is reducing his role within the company. In fact, he briefly left the WWE in 2022, when the initial allegations of his infidelities first surfaced in a Wall Street Journal report.
And this week, former wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was appointed to the board of directors at TKO, the umbrella company formed by the UFC-WWE merger. Meanwhile, another former wrestler, Triple H (aka Paul Levesque) replaced McMahon as the WWE’s Chief Content Officer.

WWE executive and retired wrestler John Laurinaitis is also named as a defendant in the suit. Laurinaitis was fired from the WWE in 2022.
Grant began working with the WWE in 2019, joining the company at a difficult time in her life, according to the filing.
“The two met in March 2019, when Ms. Grant was deeply saddened and struggling financially – her parents passed away after she devoted years to around-the-clock care,” the filing states. ‘On top of that, she was unemployed and her family home was lost in her parents’ bankruptcy.
“As McMahon dangled career-making and life-changing promises in front of Ms. Grant, he demonstrated an increasing lack of boundaries,” the filing said. ‘During several meetings ostensibly about a potential job with WWE, he greeted her in his underwear, touched her, repeatedly asked for hugs and spent hours sharing intimate details about his personal life.
‘Despite Ms. Grant’s expressions of unhappiness and attempts to end the sexual relationship – and while she realized that McMahon expected the physical relationship to continue as part of her employment – she had no idea how nasty it would get, nor how the psychological torture and physical violence would make her feel helpless, isolated and trapped.’
