Rousey Condemns McMahon Who Is Under Sex A Trafficking Probe - 'Evil, Unethical, Slimeball'

Ronda Rousey has slammed her ex-boss and former WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

McMahon is currently facing a federal investigation over claims that he was involved in sex trafficking. An ex-WWE employee by the name of Janel Grant issued a lawsuit, stating that Vince had offered her a job on the condition she provide sex. The lawsuit also stated that McMahon had trafficked her to other men. Vince denied his innocence as he vowed to clear his name. But he did leave the board of TKO Group Holdings Inc. 

McMahon’s Troubles

“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,” McMahon said

“Today’s complaint seeks to hold accountable two WWE executives who sexually assaulted and trafficked Plaintiff Janel Grant, as well as the organization that facilitated or turned a blind eye to the abuse and then swept it under the rug.

“She is an incredibly private and courageous person who has suffered deeply at the hands of Mr. McMahon and Mr. Laurinaitis. Ms. Grant hopes that her lawsuit will prevent other women from being victimized. The organization is well aware of Mr. McMahon’s history of depraved behavior, and it’s time that they take responsibility for the misconduct of its leadership,” Ann Callis (Grant’s attorney) revealed

Rousey On McMahon

Several claims of sexual misconduct have damaged Vince’s reputation. The WWE’s first-ever female referee, Rita Chatterton, accused McMahon of raping her. Vince settled out of court. He also left as CEO of WWE in 2022. An investigation found he paid nearly $15 million in total to four women over a period of 16 years, so they kept quiet over allegations of sexual misconduct.

Rousey is well aware of the WWE. After leaving the UFC, she joined the WWE for a year in 2018. She then returned to the company in 2022, leaving a year later. In her memoir, ‘Our Fight,’ Rousey took aim at McMahon.

“It’s hard sometimes to know where the evil, unethical, slimeball character of Vince McMahon played out for the camera ends and the actual questionably ethical, many times sued, and multiple times accused of sexual misconduct Vince McMahon begins. That blurred line between character and reality is a recurring theme within the WWE Universe. [Pay-per-views are] held in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, as well as twice a year now in Saudi Arabia. A nation that restricts the rights of women in a way that I’m certain Vince McMahon wishes he could,” Rousey said

Much recently, Vince has been getting rid of his stock in TKO Group Holdings. He reportedly filed to sell over $400 million this month. The Securities and Exchange Commission said that was for 5.35 million shares. McMahon did something similar last year, selling $700 million worth of stock. That has created the narrative that Vince will need all the funds he can get to fight this case.
